When the weather is hot, the Mai Tais are cold, when all the world decides to get married on the lawn, we know it's time to don all those delightful summer looks and join the party head-on...so long as we don't spill our drink.
As always, here at Kariella, we've compiled our list of outfit ideas to help you on your way. Be sure to read all the way to the end to learn about our ultimate outfit-pairing look. Trust us, you won't want to miss it.
And away we go...
The Garden Party
Stroll across the veranda with a glass of chardonnay. And while you're at it, you might as well look the part. We've paired these wide-leg trousers with a neutral tank to give you that delectable upscale feel. And who would have guessed it's oh so comfortable, too?
Carnival Pant, $62
Charmer Cami, $24
We know what it's like when the family gets together. That's why we recommend you come prepared with a style that's all your own. Go with a fun maxi lined with frills that you can mingle about in. Sway to the rhythm of the music, rock the potluck catwalk, weave your way across the room and be the bell of the ball (as you are).
Vintage Blossom Maxi, $148
No one outshines the bride. But this'll get you pretty darn close. Don't forget the floppy sunhat to accompany the look.
Moonlight Maxi, $148
Cara Straw Hat, $78
The Must-Have Accompaniment
If you're hitting up the sand at an ocean-side venue, don't forget to pick up a pair of these Lux flip flops in the color of your choice. Slip them into your purse before the wedding. Become a master quick-change artist and the envy of your stiletto-wearing compatriots.
Lux Sandal, $42
The Night in the Tropics
What says "Sunset on the Beach" more than a flowy maxi sporting all the colors of a perfect tropical evening? Slip this easily over your swim suit or dress it up with a pair of strappy sandals for a swanky dinner out.
Diana Maxi, $118
For all those bridal showers, baby showers, house-warming and bachelorette parties, we've got the ideal dress that'll work for every occasion. Frolick on the beaches, prance across the boardwalk, get your groove on, or simply lounge about in this versatile mini. It'll never let you down.
Lola Dress, $126
Where a maxi is too much and a mini is not quite enough, why not meet in the middle? We love a good midi that can spruce up any occasion. Find one in a soft pastel as we did for a more feminine feel.
Strawberry Fields Midi, $82
Congrats on making it to the end! Was it worth it?
(The answer is, "Duh, of course it was!")
If you're looking for the ultimate outfit-pairing look...look elsewhere 'cuz he's ours. However, being the helpful bellas that we are, we hope to offer a bit of inspiration for all your date needs, and wish you all the best of luck.
Until next time!
