It won’t be long until Labor Day. What are you going to wear as you say goodbye to summer? Here are a few cute outfit ideas for your end-of-season picnic, BBQ or backyard party.
What to Wear to a BBQ Party – A Maxi
If you’ve never worn a maxi, don’t let the summer pass without trying one.
I had a friend over who was raving about maxi dresses. She hadn’t worn one in years but had recently bought one. When I asked her why she loved her maxi dress so much, I expected her to say it was because it covered her legs, or because it was comfy. But instead, she said it was because her maxi made her feel like a movie star! I had to laugh because I know what she means.
I have a maxi dress that I like to wear when I’m entertaining during the summer by the pool. Every time I put it on I feel rather glam, even though the dress is pretty casual, and we’re just outside having a burger.
There’s something about swishing around in a maxi dress, wearing breezy sandals and big, oversized sunglasses that make you feel very Hollywood.
What to Wear to a BBQ- Capris
Here’s a way to dress up your Capris if you are visiting friends on the long weekend. All you need to do is add a cute off the shoulder top. This pretty blue one is summery fresh but can transition into fall.
It’s always exciting when you can find a top with an interesting neckline. The embroidery trim is so unique.
Suede mules in a neutral color are very “now” and helps to make your legs look long and lean. A beaded bracelet and dangling earrings go with the relaxed, laid-back feel. Now that’s a cute outfit!
What to Wear to a Bbq? – Shorts
When you are shopping for shorts, there are plenty of boring, old lady styles and tattered teen types. So if you run across a pair of shorts like these, grab them. ( They’ll be great for your winter vacation down south too!)
The scalloped hem makes them very feminine and more dressy than most shorts. I love them paired with this blue one-shoulder ruffle top and taupe accessories. This is a classy way to wear shorts.
Finally, take a look at how a little bit of jewelry upscales this outfit. A touch of bling is all you need to look polished, no matter what you wear. Fringe earrings play up the interesting neckline, and that lacy metallic cuff is a sophisticated touch.
What to Wear to a BBQ – White Pants and Bright Top
You can never go wrong with a crisp pair of white jeans, and these have the cutest cutout detail at the bottom. Pair them with a bright top and some fabulous slides for a cheery, end of summer look.
These jeans can even work into fall if you pair them with darker, slightly heavier transitional pieces. No white after Labor Day is an old rule. Would you agree?
Have a Great Labor Day weekend and enjoy your last party of the summer!
