A friend of mine recently posed this fashion dilemma: She’ll be attending an outdoor wedding in a few weeks followed by an outdoor reception with a barbecue theme — what on Earth does one wear to such an event? If the recent 90-plus degree temps are any indication of what the weather will be like come July, she’s in for a scorcher. So comfort — and not sweating out her hair, makeup and outfit — will be top priority.
Since the reception is BBQ-themed, a gingham print dress immediately came to mind, but then I thought — every other woman who’s also a wedding guest will probably be thinking the same. My next idea? A maxi dress to which my friend immediately replied “I can feel the sweat rolling down my legs now!” My final recommendation: a fabulous wide-leg jumpsuit. There’s something very sexy and sophisticated about it without trying too hard. And I’d be willing to bet money that my girl won’t have a “B*t&h stole my look!” moment, either.
If you, too, have an outdoor wedding to attend this summer, here’s a little fashion inspiration that won’t leave you feeling like a sweaty mess by the end of the night.
Keep it stylish,
