Outdoor Party Favorite: The Sundress

You want to look cute, but you don’t want to be overdressed. This is often the plight of someone going to, or hosting, an outdoor party. Should you wear shorts or a skirt? What color works best?

The real way to take the guesswork out of your wardrobe: go with a sundress.

Sundresses are tailor-made for the summer. They’re made of a light material so you won’t get overheated as you sip lemonade out in the warm sunshine, and they’re covered in colors and patterns that match the season.

Floral prints are standard when it comes to sundresses. Choose bright colors for your floral print to match the brightness surrounding you.

When the thought of floral prints lodges the memory of your grandma into your noggin, go for solid colors for your party wardrobe instead. Since it’s summer, choose bright colors like this cute yellow number. Orange, pink and sky blue also work well.

If the outdoor party is going to go long, dipping into night, think about accessories that can keep you warm. This adorable sleeveless jacket adds both a bit of warmth along with the necessary “cool” factor.
