Fire up the BBQ because Labor Day is here, and it’s time for one last outdoor party! What are you be wearing as you say goodbye to summer? Here are a few ideas for what to wear to a Labor Day BBQ.
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 /Cropped Pants
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 white one with the delicate embroidery makes it a beautiful piece.
Suede studded slides are very “now” and will go with everything else in your wardrobe too. Dangly earrings go with the relaxed, laid-back feel. Now that’s a cute outfit!
BBQ Outfit Idea – Shorts
Round off the summer in these sporty olive cargo shorts and this pretty dark floral top. Dark florals are trending for fall, so this top is a great transition piece. Nude slides and your favorite white summer bag bring a lightness to the look. In fall, pair this pretty top with black jeans and accessories for a completely different look.
What to Wear to a BBQ – White Pants and Bright Top
You can never go wrong with a crisp pair of white jeans. Pair them with a colorful striped top and some fabulous slides for a cheery, end of summer look.
This is a great tee to invest in because the colors are light and bright enough for summer, but also warm enough for fall. Layer this tee with a long cardigan or cute jacket + these white jeans, colored jeans or your favorite blue jeans in September. No white after Labor Day is an old rule. Would you agree?
What will you be wearing Labor Day weekend, and how are you planning to enjoy your last weekend of the summer?
