What to wear to a Memorial Day barbecue

Q. I was invited to a Memorial Day bbq party. The dress is casual, but I’m pretty insecure about my legs. What do you suggest I wear that is appropriate for the summery outdoor event that hides my legs? I don’t want to look overdressed or out of place.

A. Don’t fret! There are plenty of casual summer looks that don’t require shorts or short dresses. Lucky for you, the maxi has never been hotter, which means there are a multitude of maxi skirts and dresses available in every price point, and for every style. Pair a maxi skirt with a tank top, t-shirt, or even a little denim jacket if the weather is chilly. Or, opt for an easy maxi dress in solids or prints. If a maxi isn’t your thing, opt for slim white pants or cropped pants in a pretty print or color paired with the top or tunic of your choice. The good news is, you can look great and enjoy yourself while keeping your legs under wraps!
