What to Wear to a Summer BBQ

Summer is here! With the warm weather and all of its festivities officially here, we guarantee a invite to a BBQ is in your future!  If you’re not sure what to wear to a summer cookout, we’ve got you covered. 

 

The Backyard BBQ 

Backyard cookouts and summertime just go together. The relaxed vibe, the outdoors and some great food make up the ultimate summer weekend.  A backyard BBQ means you can keep things comfy and simple. Denim shorts are the perfect base for building your best outfit. Opt for a great denim pair in a crisp white wash and wear with a feminine floral print top for a look that’s equal parts casual and chic. Add coordinating sandals and just like that, you've got the carefree summer vibe.

 

Hosting the Backyard BBQ 

If you’re hosting a backyard BBQ of your own, you can’t go wrong with a jumpsuit. A wide-leg silhouette in a breathable linen-cotton blend ensures you’ll stay cool under the summer sun. The best part? This one-and-done piece means you can put your full focus on prepping food and activities for your guests.

 

The Birthday BBQ

The best part about summer birthdays? The festivities often take place outdoors for a fun-filled BBQ with friends. Go with a fun sundress paired with summer-ready accessories. We love the idea of pairing a floral tiered dress with delicate jewelry for a simple but styish look. Effortlessly toss a denim jacket over your shoulders, and you’re all set to celebrate!  

 

The Family BBQ

There’s nothing quite like an afternoon spent enjoying the summer with family. If your plans involve a 4th of July  BBQ with family, go ahead and add a bit of Americana style. Classic blue denim is always an American fashion staple. Don’t forget to accessorize with pops of red. A red lip and coordinating sandals will have you ready for the 4th! 

 

The Wedding BBQ

And now for the fanciest of all BBQ parties—the BBQ wedding. Thanks to the recent rise of micro weddings and backyard nuptials, BBQ weddings are becoming increasingly popular. While the wedding guest attire for these events may be a bit more casual than most, you’ll still want to dress up!  A blousy top and matching skirt are perfect to wear to a BBQ wedding
