Summer is the most enjoyable season of the year – the weather is great, our moods are high and there are a lot of fun activities to do. Whether it’s a backyard barbecue, a garden wedding or a baby shower, there is basically a party for every occasion.
But since there’s so much going on in summer, it can be hard to make up your mind on what to wear for each occassion. However, it’s pretty safe to assume that you should be prepared for sun, sand, grass and bugs. Now, a dinner party is one thing, but if it’s a garden party, the glamour quotient moves up a notch, which means rocking your long dinner dress probably won’t cut it.
Honestly speaking, garden parties can be as tricky as the ingredients on the host’s barbecue. Get to the party overdressed, and you’ll spend the day feeling self-conscious; arrive too casual, and you won’t be able to shake off that feeling of being misplaced. So what do you do to get it right?
First of all, simplicity is key. You want to feel free and comfortable. The sundress is the best choice for a garden party. It is extremely comfortable and lightweight. You won’t feel self-conscious or misplaced in it. Plus, you can style it with anything you want, starting from blazers, cardigans and denim jackets. You can also accentuate it with a belt to skim your waist or leave it completely free for some uniqueness.
Flat shoes are also perfect for walking on gravel or grass and running around the yard with little kids. But flat shoes don’t have to be boring. They can still be glamorous, playing off the neutral tones of your dress flawlessly and giving you that full feminine look.
For your handbag, you should go small. A clutch bag in a garden party is a no-no; plus large totes only add bulkiness to a look that’s meant to be relaxed and light. Empty the contents of your everyday handbag into a little cross-body style. The goal is to enjoy a cool afternoon feeling as free and effortless as possible (while relishing one last ingredient: the sun).
