Fire Up the grill, put on the steaks! It’s BBQ season, and there’s a party starting down the block. When the neighbors call and invite you over to their backyard for an ice-cold cocktail and a juicy BBQ, how do you dress?
Here are some cute bbq outfits to look casual, modern and summery.
1. Dressed Up Denim
Denim capris, cropped jeans, a jean skirt, anything denim is ideal for barbeque wear, especially when you are sporting the latest denim trend. For example, denim capris with a frayed release hemline, or cropped colored jeans in a blush tone, are very current and fresh.
As for your top, you may be happy in a basic white or dusty, muted tee when you are puttering around the garden, but when you’re having company or you are the company, it’s worth the effort to toss on a colorful print top to crank up your style. Cute, casual shoes like these wedge rope sandals, a pretty bag, and fun earrings can take denim from o.k. to oh yay!
2. Colorful Shorts Always Look Cute
Shorts are natural BBQ attire, and please don’t worry about the age appropriate thing. If you want to wear shorts, go for it; simply find a pair that works for your body type. (More tips on wearing shorts here.)
I like shorts with personality for a BBQ party because after all, the mood is relaxed and fun. Go for something colorful and now trending like these beachy jogger shorts. Other styles that are popular this summer: high-waisted shorts, tie waist shorts, and striped shorts.
When your shorts are colorful and busy, try to keep what you wear up top nice, clean and simple. This creates balance and lets your shorts take the spotlight. A fun hat also adds huge style to a casual shorts outfit, and earrings give you a more grown-up shorts look.
3. White is Right
Some BBQ’s on the patio or by the pool are a little more dressy. These cotton, sailor-inspired palazzo pants are casual but chicer than your typical BBQ outfit. Sometimes a breezy all-white look is just what you feel like wearing.
The trick to making this tone on tone ensemble work is to add texture in the way of a wicker bag and suede slides. Oh, and most important for any backyard BBQ, don’t forget the sunglasses! Yes, they keep the sun off your eyes, but more importantly, they add instant cool.
4. A Maxi Dress
If you like the idea of wearing a bbq party dress then, a maxi is something to consider. Maxi dresses, especially off the shoulder ones, are very summery, fun and a little romantic. This would be a great outfit to wear a slightly dressier BBQ party, one that started around dinnertime and went into the evening.
