Summer is in full swing! The days are long, the sun is warm (or at least it should be) and the grill is fired up. It’s a good time to be out and about! There’s nothing quite like enjoying a longggg sunset while taking in the aromatic atmosphere of a summer get together. But, last minute hangouts mean that sometimes you’ve gotta get barbeque ready in 5 minutes or less. Not to fret: you’ve got some easy outfit equations in your closet.
Take a look in your closet. The summer staple of a cutoff shorts is just waiting to be paired with your softest tank. Denim shorts and tank tops have been rollin’ together since people have been grilling in their backyard. Do like Katie, throw on a sweet pair of lace up kicks, grab an iced coffee and get to BBQ time.

For those of us who define “sandals” as “ankle boots”, a sweet spin is the off-the-shoulder top with a denim mini. Not a cutoff short, nor a sundress, this is a decidedly current look. Put it in neutral like Annabel with black and blue, or pick a brightly hued top to make it punchy.

Caftans: often associated 60s poolside chic, this vintage style has made a comeback. Minimal and oh so roomy, this style is a great way to leave room for tasty treats. Erin shows that the caftan doesn’t have to stay in the past; a straw hat and gorgeous heeled sandals make this a slightly elevated option.

Sometimes summer nights are cooler than expected, but that shouldn’t stand in the way of your fun. Zoe’s high rise cropped pant and a minimal tank top come together with a crossover sandal. Comfy, low fuss and realizable, this option will be perfect whether you’re hanging on the beach or in a park (and look damn fine doing so).

Black swing dress, lil booties and lots of room for food! Easy to throw on top of your suit fresh off the beach, you could also substitute your favorite pair of sandals. A-line dresses have experienced a resurgence in recent years, and with good reason. Flirtatious without being restrictive, it’s a great option to jet out the door in.
