Who’s planning to host or attend a holiday cookout today? Raise your hand! That’s a lot of hands.
Now, who knows what they’re wearing? Not so many, huh?
If you’re anything like me, you didn’t give a whole lot of thought to this weekend’s attire ahead of time, but when you get dressed for the festivities today, you will want to be stylish but comfortable.
Backyard barbecue style is all about looking effortlessly chic — nothing too fussy, but stylish and put together.
Option #1: Shorts
Banana Republic Printed one-shoulder shirt with their Roll-up shorts and the Sally handcrafted jeweled wedge. Or, if you’re worried about spraining your ankle walking around in the grass in 3-inch heels, try the Frye Kayla T Strap Sandal instead.
OPTION #3: Maxi Dress
There’s always the ultra feminine maxi dress, like the BCBGMAXAZRIA – ZigZag Maxi Dress (Chambray Combo) – Apparel. Unless you’re 6 feet tall like this model, you’ll probably want to wear your maxi dress with a pair of wedge sandals. Just make sure you stay off the grass.
OPTION #4: Classic Shift
For an elegant look, conisder a classic Lilly Pulitzer shift — the Jacqueline is perfect for a Memorial Day weekend backyard barbecue. Pair it with delicate sandals and a simple bangle and you’ll be the envy of the party!
