Few events are more enjoyable than a garden party. There is no better way to spend a day than in a beautiful setting, under the summer sun and surrounded by your loved ones.
However, choosing the perfect outfit can be difficult, as you will not want to be either over- or underdressed. For help selecting the right look, read the following advice on what to wear to a garden party.
Keep it Casual
Most garden parties don’t come with a strict dress code; however, most people choose to keep it casual. For example, you can wear everything from a pretty floral t shirt paired with and stylish plus size jeans and sandals to a stylish summer dress or a pair of shorts. The choice is yours.
Stay Cool with Lighter Colors
Leave the dark hues at home when attending a garden party. Not only will you stand out for the wrong reasons, but it can increase your body temperature. Instead, wear lighter colors that will keep you cool throughout the outdoor party. For example, white hues, pastel shades, and primary colors are an ideal choice and will perfectly complement the season.
Blend in with a Floral Print
To perfectly blend in with the flowers, plants and a koi pond, you should wear floral to a garden party. A floral summer dress can be a pretty, casual option that suits the event and the print is on trend almost every spring/summer season.
A floral dress can also look effortlessly stylish when paired with:
- Kitten heels
Remain Comfortable with Flowing Fabrics
The last thing you will want is to feel uncomfortable under the intense sun. Ensure you don’t feel more than a little toasty by adorning loose, flowing fabrics, so you will feel comfortable when mixing with friends or family members throughout the party. If you don’t, it could ruin all your fun, as you might be tempted to go back indoors or head home.
Protect Your Eyesight with Sunglasses
It can be easy to neglect your eyesight when in the sun, as you might be busy talking to others, dancing to music or helping to fire up a delicious BBQ. For this reason, you should try to wear a stylish pair of sunglasses as much as possible throughout the garden party, which can prevent damage to your vision and can complement any spring/summer outfit.
Shield Your Skin with an SPF
It is, of course, important to look beyond your wardrobe when attending a garden party, as you must shield your skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays. In addition to picking the perfect outfit and perfecting your hair for the garden party, you also should apply an SPF of 30+, which can prevent painful sunburn and permanent skin damage.
A garden party isn’t a formal affair. If you wear light, bright and comfortable clothing that complements your style, you are bound to blend in perfectly with the crowd and have a good time with your loved ones.
