Higher temperatures and mounting humidity in various destinations across the world is often the setting for much anticipated outdoor occasions including posh horse races, tennis games, and other athletic events, garden parties, and patriotic backyard barbecues. You dress up or down in a stylish way. Suggested clothes should be qualified to stay sweat-free, impeccable, and without any creases. If dancing is part of the schedule, these smart casual pieces should also allow you some movement. So let’s pick what to wear on each occasion.
Attending Something Like Royal Ascot
Elegant open-air venues (often in sports) require a more sophisticated outfit such as a comfy all-day dress. In British Ascot for example, people put on their fanciest outfit to watch the horse races and have a picnic. Complement a statement hat or fascinator with this chic Ted Baker Wylieh Jacquard Midi Dress. Be even bolder with this super-hot Halston Heritage One-Shoulder Flounce Mini Dress. Embrace summer florals with this intricate Alice + Olivia Imani Cap-Sleeve Lace Fit & Flare Dress.
4th of July Barbecue
Americans use to celebrate this National Day with garden or poolside barbecues dressed up in colors from their flag or just cool summer outfits. Sporty girls will love to wear this modern Maje Relief Reversible Weaved Short Dress. Rock the right color and a cool motif with this elegant Diane von Furstenberg Cinch Sleeve Silk Midi Shirt Dress. For another eye-catching silhouette pick this easy-to-wear Alice + Olivia Lennon Surplice Sleeveless Side-Zip Mini Dress.
Off to a Summer Wedding
Often such events happen in seaside destinations before sunset which means you are still under the bright sun wearing formal clothes. Try something ethereal such as this Cinq à Sept Petra Sleeveless Lace-Trim Faux-Wrap Silk Dress. Let shoulders bare, with this charming Veronica Beard Annika Floral Print Strapless Stretch Silk Dress. Or shift to an unconventional choice, an ensemble or this attention-getting Alexis Janisa Stripe Wide-Leg Ruffle Jumpsuit.
Outdoor Music Festival
At an open lawn, open-air arena or other designated area, a summer music festival calls for bohemian looks. Nail effortless chic by mixing this timeless Zadig & Voltaire Joslin Jac Leo Asymmetric Skirt with cowboy boots and a peasant blouse. Pair this romantic Zadig & Voltaire Rakiko Print Dress with shorts and sneakers. On the dressier side of things, combine this nonchalant Aritzia Wilfred Fleurette Ruffled Jumpsuit with mules and a fringed purse.
Garden Tea Party
That’s surely a girly affair with lots of dreamy blooms around, in a perfectly groomed garden, over china filled with flavored tea and scone trays. It might come in the form of a charity event, a baby shower or just a get-together of posh ladies. We strongly recommend the fit & flare silhouette of this Alice + Olivia Tevin Floral Appliqué Dress. For a cuter effect pick this vivid Alice + Olivia Esther Ruffle Hem Tunic Dress. Alternatively, opt for the on-trend Zadig & Voltaire Rooka Leopard Print Dress.
