We rarely pass up the opportunity to spend quality time with friends outdoors, eat delicious food, and listen to good music, which is why summer barbeques are one of our most beloved events. It also happens to be one of our favorite occasions to get dressed for, as it’s the perfect time to break out a new pair of sandals or experiment with a bold print. This year, we’re taking style cues from two spring runways, both of which featured a grassy green color palette that’s fitting for warm-weather soirees. While at Dolce & Gabbana the Cotton Vertical Striped Dress ($2045, 877.70.DGUSA) and Raffia Sandals ($1375) seem destined for a poolside fete, we love how Kenzo’s silky Orchid Print Crepe Top ($560) and matching Forest Print Poplin Bermuda Shorts ($495) exude easy luxury. Keeping those references in mind, we rounded up an assortment of barbeque-ready items, all of which are sure to make your friends green with envy!
Leave the casual flip-flops at home and accessorize with Tory Burch’s artfully embellished Etta Flat Sandals instead. The chic flats will go with everything from a polished shirtdress to cropped trousers.
Carrie Bag ($225, available July) in Fern
When picking the right bag to accompany your ensemble, the key is to think fuss-free. This mini cross-body bag won’t get in the way and is just big enough to store the day’s essentials.
The perfect finish to any barbecue-ready look is a standout manicure. In keeping with our green color palette, we’ve selected Scotch Naturals’ Nail Polish in Blimey, a vibrant chartreuse that will instantly amp up your look.
For those barbeques that rage on well into the evening, it’s always a good idea to pack a lightweight layer. We love this soft sweater because you can easily throw it over a bathing suit or tank top when the sun goes down.
