Summer is right around the corner, which means your schedule is about to get jam-packed full of pool parties, backyard BBQs, weddings and other fabulous hot-weather events. What to wear? We know you want to impress no matter where you go, so we’ve put together some summer style inspiration for every occasion.
What to wear to a Pool party
Pool parties are great because you really don’t have to wear a lot. But before you grab your bikini and head out the door with nothing more than a towel, consider a few other items for the perfect poolside style.
Start with a hat. We love this one in bead-trimmed raffia ($98). Pair your sun-shielding chapeau with a simple yet sleek pair of gladiator-inspired sandals like these fashionable flats from Aldo ($35) and a loose-fitting frock you can throw on over your swimsuit, like this sporty, striped button-down tank dress from Rag & Bone ($175). Have fun and don’t forget your sunscreen!
What to wear to a Backyard BBQ
BBQs are usually casual occasions, but that doesn’t mean you want to show up looking like you just rolled out of bed. Instead of just any shorts, opt for a more refined style. You’ll look pretty and pulled together in these black high-waisted sailor shorts ($44). Pair with a short-sleeved blouse, like this feminine pintuck blouse with ruffle sleeves and scoop neck ($44.83). Add some fashionable summer footwear like these Miss Mooz clog sandals with ankle strap and wood heel ($109), and you have a comfortably chic and stylish outfit.
