3 Perfect Outfits For An Always Stylish Summer
Finally, summer is here. Your calendar will hopefully be littered with barbecues, deck parties, beach trips, and every other outdoor activity under the (literal) sun. And since you surely want to do right by this gloriously warm holiday, it's important to have the right outfit. From your afternoon by the grill, to drinks by the pool, to your nighttime festivities, here are three outfits to ring in summer's arrival.
1| The Afternoon Barbecue
Really the focal point of your weekend, the afternoon barbecue is where you want to be comfortable, but also have a bit of fun with your look. Throw a short-sleeve linen shirt over your favorite summer tee, and then cap it off with some bold patterned shorts, your favorite pair of sneaks, and some stylish shades. And maybe toss in a beaded necklace just for kicks.

2| The Nighttime Roof/Deck/Yard Party
Once the sun sets, you're going to want to add a light layer. It's still spring, after all, and the evenings can get a little chilly. Wear your boldest camp collar shirt under a black denim jacket, with a pair of light wash jeans and some white retro sneakers.

3| Drinks by the Pool
Obviously this will be your most dressed down look of the weekend. But that doesn't mean you can't dress down with style. Go for a casual long sleeve shirt (because it's still cooler than you'd like it to be) with some brightly colored swim trunks and a pair of easygoing shoes. And top it all off with some bold shades.
