What to wear: to an outdoor party

As it is now the warm season, summer, there are usually a lot of parties going on outside. Whether it's at a lake, someone's back yard or terrace, I have some ideas that might help you out when you're trying to decide what to wear. These occasions might be both casual or elegant, so I've put up some different ideas that suit both of these styles. If you've read my 'Fashion rules-Broken!' post, you'll notice that I have broken some of the rules for these outfits, to show you how it can be done.
So, here are my five ideas of what to wear to an outdoor party:


Outfit no.1


The first outfit is a combination of elegance and comfort, the grey vest giving it a more sophisticated look. The outfit combines a pair of skinny jeans, a white top and some grey items: wedges, vest and bag. As for accessories, I've added a slightly pink/grey scarf, which I think is great for giving the whole outfit a bit of color, and a cute bracelet.


Outfit no.2
The second outfit is a bit more elegant, due to the beige blazer. Since floral print is a very popular trend right now, I've chosen a red/pink sheer top, which also gives the outfit a nice pop of color. The white shorts with the brown belt go well with the brown wedges. And then the beige/grey bag and the multiple bracelet complete the outfit.



Outfit no.3

This outfit features a dark navy jumpsuit, which is really comfortable to wear. You just 'jump' into it (maybe that's why they call it a jumpsuit..haha). If you have a jumpsuit and feel like it's too big or not very fitted, you can pair it with a waist belt to see how it looks. But for this outfit, I've decided to pair it with a brown pair of sandals, some golden jewelry (bracelet and necklace) and a simple navy with beige bag. This combination of colors, navy and gold, always gives me the impression of royalty. Also, I think you should only wear heels like these if you're going to a party on a terrace or someplace paved, or else you'll get your heels stuck in the ground, which can be so annoying.


Outfit no.4

This next outfit has a floral white dress, which I find really cute, paired with some nude accessories. So you have a pair of light beige wedges, a beige bag, a pair of golden dangling earrings and a pair of sunglasses. I think this outfit is great for any outdoor party, it's really pretty and feminine, and it's also great for those hot summer days. 


Outfit no.5

This outfit is a much more casual one, combining a simple floral white top and a pair of denim shorts. I really like this color combo: brown and blue. The flat sandals are great for walking around, as they're really comfy. And as for the accessories, here's what I've chosen: a multiple bracelet, a brown shoulder bag and a blue hat.



Hope you enjoyed reading this post and that it was helpful! Let me know what you think ,which one you like best and which one would you choose to wear to an outdoor party. Also, if you have any suggestions for a future 'how to wear' (a certain item, piece of clothing, trend) or 'what to wear' (to a certain event/occasion), let me know. I'd be glad to help!

  26. Your outfit will also determine if you will enjoy the outdoor party or not. Sometimes, not having the right dress will limit your moves. So, it is always better to have a light outfit that will make you move freely.
