One of the best things about summer is all the quality times you can get to spend with your friends. It’s warm enough to go out and go together, from music festivals, concerts to barbeques to yacht parties. Chances are, you’ll soon be heading to an outdoor event after being cooped up indoors for too long! The only thing you’re probably worrying about is what outfit you should wear. Don’t worry, if you have shindig coming up, here are some fabulous fashion ideas for your outdoor summer parties.
White tee + denim
You can never go wrong with the basics. At an outdoor summer party, you have to avoid wearing black as it can make you feel hotter than it already is. A basic white tee and a denim short (or skirt) can make you feel fresh. Make the look party-ready and fewer out-for-errands by accessorizing with a colorful scarf and a summer hat. Pair it with fun wedges instead of your usual sneakers.
Lace top + denim shorts
Upgrade the casual top and denim shorts combo by wearing a lace top. The lace will speak to your feminine side, and the sneakers and denim shorts will keep it casual.
White shirt + maxi skirt
A white shirt is a closet staple, and make it summer party-ready by pairing it with a flowy maxi skirt. You may think that a maxi skirt is too much for the summer, but if it’s made of organic cotton or silk, then it’s perfect for a party. Accent your outfit with a leather belt bag, so you can keep your belongings with you while you’re participating in backyard games for BBQ parties.
Cropped top + denim shorts
Is it too hot outside? There’s nothing better to pair with your trusty denim shorts than a fresh cropped top. A modest cropped top is your best choice, and keep the colors and patterns bright and light. Pair it with a fun straw hat and sneakers.
You can’t go wrong with a breezy floral dress. The key is to choose a fabric that’s light – even almost sheer if you prefer. You can wear it from a backyard summer party to a romantic date night. Pair it with strappy flat sandals if you want to dress it down or pumps if you want to dress it up.
Spaghetti strap dress + ankle boots
Can’t get enough of the gorgeous ankle boots you bought for fall? Don’t worry, you can still wear them for your summer gatherings with the right outfit. Pair it with a spaghetti strap dress to make an otherwise feminine dress a little bit edgy and stylish. Don’t wear your leather boots, though – wear something more airy like suede.
Denim jumper short + white tee
Unleash the inner child in you by wearing a denim jumper short and a classic white tee underneath. This playful outfit won’t look childish if you accessorize well. Pair it with clean, white platform sneakers and a leather sling bag.
Sexy onesie + white sneakers
Wear a short, low-cut printed jumpsuit if you want to feel bold and beautiful. Keep it fun and flirty with dangling earrings and rose-colored glasses, then pair it with white sneakers to keep it grass-friendly.
Wrap dress + loafers
The wrap dress is a wonderful creation. It’s fashionable, feminine, and can be worn on both formal and casual occasions. If you’re attending a summer outdoor party during the day, pair the dress with casual loafers and a straw tote bag. Make sure you wear a wrap dress made of cotton or any soft and breathable material so you won’t look overdressed.
Button-down tank dress + strappy sandals
A tank dress with button-down details is absolutely charming. It’s well enough to stand on its own since it’s casual yet stylish at the same time. But if you’re not comfortable going sleeveless, you can always wear a fitted shirt underneath. Pair it with a pair of strappy sandals to complete the look.
Gingham spaghetti dress + white tee
Gingham plaid is trendy once again, so you can use this to keep your summer outfits updated. A sexy, spaghetti strap dress can be worn more comfortably if you wear a white tee underneath. It pairs well with white sneakers or loafers, or wedge sandals if you want to add height.
Tunic + strappy sandals
A tunic made of light materials is perfect for any summer day occasion. You can wear it for parties where you mostly share food and stories, and even the beach or pool where you spend vacations. What’s also cool about it is you can rock it with a dress or pair it with ripped denim jeans and wear it as a shirt.
Slit dress + sandals
Any summer party is an excuse to wear your casual slit dress. It’s great for meeting up with friends and catching up while showing off skin in a subtle yet sexy way.
Plain top + bright skirt
Go with a bright and bold skirt to go with your white, plain top – whether a button-down shirt or a tee. It’s effortless but fabulous. Finish it off with cute wedges for a trendy yet relaxed ensemble.
Romper + heeled sandals
Something that a lot of women don’t own but definitely should is a sleeveless top and pants romper. It can be dressed down for a casual party or dressed up with heels and a coat for work.
Coordinating attire + heels
Dainty co-ords are handy during the summer – they can show off your style while lessening the guesswork for you since two items are already paired together. Coords for summer parties would either show off your legs, tummy, or cleavage, but not all so as not to look too revealing. Pair your girly coordinates with heels.
Floral top + button-down skirt
Floral tops are pretty in themselves, but you can make them more stylish and feminine by pairing them with a dainty, button-down skirt. Keep the color of your skirt solid and plain so as not to clash with the floral pattern of your top. Casually dress it down with white sneakers, then wear your leather bag with a chain strap to complete the ensemble.
Skater dresses are a must-have for any fashionista for any season, especially for summer and fall. It gives you lots of options on how to wear them. Wear it with pumps or high heels to elevate the feminine effect, or pair it with sneakers or ankle boots for an edgy touch.
