You've packed the rosé and crudité and have a blanket in tow, and now all that's left is finding the perfect picnic outfit. While snacking in the park is among the more relaxed activities you can do this summer, there's still some draw we have to figuring out what to wear on a picnic. In fact, coordinating your look to the activity might just be half the fun.

If you share our sentiment, you're in luck. Below we're highlighting seven key styles that seem to embody the picnic aesthetic through and through. From summery white tops to on-trend wicker baskets, these pieces will have all your friends gratuitously snapping your photo as you soak up the sun and snack on watermelon like it's no big thing. So keep your eye on the weather app and prepare for your next park visit (and your perfect picnic outfit).
