What to wear for summer gatherings, picnics and barbecues

by Stacy Cox


Eyelet, look your demure best; cargo pants, let’s get ready for battle; linen, get your wrinkle on… the fabrics of summer are busting at their seams, ready to help you look your best for any and all warm weather occasions.

Summer Gatherings: Picnics & Barbecues

If your budget is “lite” steer yourself towards some great finds under $100 at bananarepublic.com, if you want to splurge on something chic you’ll appreciate wearing for summers to come, hop over to net-a-porter.com and take a look at the Anna Sui silk printed caftan, it’s colorful and summery. And come to think of it, make sure you have 2 things stashed in your handbag: A Tide To Go Mini Instant Stain Remover Pen because ketchup and the silk caftan won’t mesh too well if the unthinkable happens! Second, a good sunscreen because a sunburn is never tres chic, rather your look instantly becomes tres bleak!

I hope you are enjoying looking at this layout as much I enjoyed putting it together. I love that Keds are making a comeback! Also, Trove Tkees Foundations flip flops are fast on their way to becomming the next Havaianas. And talk about retro, the Topshop straw visor is a fresh spin on what my gym teacher used sport on the P.E. field. Regardless of whether you are heading to a picnic or barbecue any of these looks will garner the compliments!
