July is National Grilling Month, but you don’t need a special holiday to fire up the grill. Millions of people grill out each summer, and that means you’ll likely be invited to some BBQ parties. Look great at your next get-together by following some styling tips for the perfect outfit.
Stay Cool With a Summer Blouse
Don’t throw on an old T-shirt for the summer BBQ party. Instead, select from your collection of airy women’s blouses and shirts. You can go with something off the shoulder or select a sleeveless top. You can even go with an on and off-shoulder option. Select something that breathes well and has a pattern to hide any sweat. You’ll look great when you rock one of your favorite blouses and you’ll also feel cool.
Pair It With Jeans or Denim Shorts
Women’s blouses and shirts look great with denim. You can choose your favorite pair of jeans or you can select denim shorts. If you choose jeans, consider the type of blouse you’re wearing. You’ll likely select something loose for your summer BBQ, so consider skinny jeans to complement the look. However, if you do choose something more fitted, pair it with slim-fit jeans. Whatever you choose, make sure you’re comfortable. You don’t want the denim digging into your body during a BBQ. It’s hard to chow down on grilled food if you feel like you’re about to bust out of your pants.
Stick With Flats or Wedges
When you attend a BBQ, you can expect to spend lots of time walking around outside. You’ll likely march through the grass on more than one occasion, so avoid heels. Heels stick in the ground, so you might trip and fall. At the very least, you’ll have a difficult time getting around. Then, of course, the host might not appreciate you leaving little divots in the yard. Avoid this issue by wearing flats or wedges to the party.
Choose a Single Standout Accessory
Summer BBQ parties are casual affairs, so you don’t want to over-accessorize. If you walk in with a ton of jewelry, you won’t fit in. That doesn’t mean you can’t accessorize, though. Choose a single standout accessory such as a statement necklace or straw hat. You can even choose a stunning bag as your accessory.
Throw on Some Sunglasses
If you’re going to spend much time in the sun, add some sunglasses to your ensemble. Choose something that complements your outfit while also providing the necessary eye protection. Then, you won’t have to worry about spending the party squinting and shading your eyes. That’s no way to enjoy delicious food and fun conversation.
Get Ready to Party
Summer BBQ parties are a fun way to spend time with friends during the season. Turn heads at the party by picking from your collection of women’s blouses and shirts. Choose jeans or shorts and then select a pair of wedges or flats. Select your accessory, throw on your sunglasses, and let the good times roll.
