BBQ parties can be anything from a few beers on the back porch and hot dogs on the grill to an evening of wine tasting with a gourmet cookout by the pool.
If you have been invited to a bbq party where the dress code is casually chic, here are some tips for looking relaxed but classy.
T-Shirt Dress – Accessorized
Nothing is comfier than a soft t-shirt dress when you are sitting outside, enjoying a drink and a nibble or two. And when it’s a bright blue ruched t-shirt dress, well, that kicks things up a notch! I love this tropical parrot blue t-shirt dress and how it drapes across your body and wraps around your curves.
It’s almost like a sarong. A little texture is all you need to amp up this look. Woven sandals, this artsy quilted beach bag, dainty sea-washed pearl earrings, and a fabulous hat will have you looking party-ready. Of course, oversize sunglasses add some glam, especially when they are in the hot new color- pink!
White Cropped Pants
White pants are always a winner at a BBQ party and look modern when cropped and have a beachy raw hem. This chic pair of white cropped jeans have a flattering high waist and look relaxed and summery worn with this cute, striped linen tunic. Add comfy white sneakers, a fun vegan bag, and pretty floral earrings, and you have a sporty, feminine summer dinner party look.
A Pretty Floral Maxi
Easy, breezy, and flowy. A pretty floral maxi dress is a lovely choice for a backyard BBQ party, whether you are the host or the guest. Braided sandals are trending this summer and look perfect with this dress style. Add a wow wicker handbag, pretty earrings, and these classy sunglasses to take this feminine sundress from cute to chic.
Dressed up Shorts
If you like wearing shorts, you’ll love this new style from Spanx. These 6″ Sunshine shorts come in a whole whack of colors, including this bright red. Not too short, tight, or uncomfortable, these quick-drying lightweight shorts have a flattering fit that perfectly skims your body. Pair them with a pretty, white sleeveless ruffle blouse and these sophisticated sandals with the bold gold buckle.
Hoop earrings and this fabulous rattan handbag upscale the look. Polish off your outfit with these chic rectangular tortoiseshell sunglasses! They’re a new, trendy shape this summer. I just bought a pair and love mine!
