Summer is in full swing and all hope is not yet lost because many parts of the world have started to open up and life is starting to take a turn towards some kind of normalcy. While many of us continue to work from home, many of us have started to head back to work, meet friends distantly and head out for lunch and dinner. The Coronavirus pandemic sure did take a toll on all of us in its own way, but there’s still hope and there is most certainly light at the end of the tunnel.
Your friends may have started to have small gatherings, small meetups or maybe you’re invited to an extremely intimate barbecue this weekend. The thought of finally dressing up and heading out adds much excitement to our day as it will to yours. And with that barbecue in mind, we rounded up three looks that will be perfect for a summer barbecue.
A ribbed top and shorts
This look screams casual in all the right ways. It requires minimal effort and will keep you cool and comfortable on a hot summer’s day. The great thing about this look is that you can wear any coloured ribbed top which will go perfectly well with a pair of shorts. To dress it up a little add a belt and team with those pretty summer wedges you still have stashed away. Toss your hair in a messy bun, add some gloss and you’re barbecue ready!
A cute top and jeans
How many times have you asked a girlfriend what she’s wearing and she says, “a cute top and jeans”? It’s because this is the most versatile and easy to create look in sartorial history. Opt for a pair of skinny jeans or mom jeans and team it with a pretty, summery top. Summer is a great time to opt for those floral printed tops, statement sleeve tops and off-shoulder tops, the choice is yours.
A printed shirt dress and slides
You can never go wrong with a shirt dress, especially when it’s printed! Printed shirt dresses are easy breezy and lightweight so you’ll be able to move your way around the barbecue without feeling hot and flustered. They’re great because they need minimal styling and suit absolutely every body type. Find one that wraps around so you can accentuate your waist. Team your printed summer dress with a pair of summer slides or bejewelled slip ons and you’ll be the centre of attention at that barbecue!
