Staying Fashionable at Your Next Barbecue

 

Staying fashionable is very important especially for women. Therefore, it is important to dress properly for any occasion including a casual outdoor barbecue.

Since barbecues typically occur outdoors in warm weather an appropriate summer attire would be the way to go. Therefore, dressing in a stylish pair of shorts with a summer print blouse would go very nicely at an outdoor barbecue.

Clothing

All department and specialty shops almost always display the latest summer outfits including short sets and related attire.

If you choose to wear an print summer blouse, it may be best to choose a plain pair of shorts in a basic color. Basic summer colors may include yellow, white, light blue and light purple.

Aside from appropriate dress attire, it is also important to choose fashionable footwear for ladies. Therefore, you may choose to wear open toe shoes, sandals or basic sneakers. Sandals have become increasingly popular among men and women as part of a summer wardrobe.

Sandals are stylish, not too expensive and the are available in a variety of styles as well as colors. Again, it is best to stick with a basic summer color nothing too loud. For example, you probably want to stay away from colors such as bright red or bright mixed colors. Wearing loud colors in the summertime may certainly garnish much attention. However, the attention you may receive due to wearing loud colors may not be the kind of attention that most ladies hope for.

Sneakers can also be worn at just about any event or function within the summer months. Sneakers are a popular choice especially where a barbecue is concerned. Sneakers have become more fashionable over the years. There are a variety of name brand sneakers that most department stores and foot specialty stores carry on a regular basis.

Aromas

Especially in the early summer, one touch that you can add is the use of complimentary aromas to really make a lasting impact at your social gatherings. Some aromas that lead the way this time of year are fruits, including mandarin and clementine, as well as floral scents, including vanilla and a wide variety of proprietary blends from all the famous brands. Consult your local department store to find out what’s hot, or fall back on one of the old standbys like Yves Saint Laurent or Christian Dior.

If you’re looking to impress someone in particular, this step can be the difference that sets you apart from the crowd. Remember that if you’re at a barbecue fire can be prevalent and can overpower any aromas that you wear. If you’re hosting the party, you might want to look into a propane fire pit or grill as opposed to charcoal burning alternatives, as this will lessen your exposure to the overpowering aroma of dirtier smokes.

Accessories

Ladies may also choose some colorful summer jewelry to wear at an outdoor barbecue. Summer style necklaces and bracelets will match just about any summer outfit. Women can really enjoy trying to match up appropriate jewelry with certain outfits especially when a special event is approaching such as an outdoor cook-out or barbecue.

Necklaces made from beads and even sea shells can be worn at just about any event within the warm months of summer. Jewelry of this kind will certainly spice up any summer attire. In addition, summer style earrings would also add a nice touch to a summer outfit. How many times have you heard? I love those earrings or where did you find that cute necklace? Certain attire makes a definite fashion statement. Also, it is possible to set new fashion trends by wearing certain kinds of summer clothing with fashionable jewelry pieces.

Women always seem to enjoy taking about the latest fashions and styles. In addition, women are usually very complementary when it comes to noticing and commenting on another’s outfit. Women in particular are always eager to find out where one of their friends or co-workers bought their shirt or new pair of shorts. Fashion always seems to make an interesting conversation piece.

Rockstar Fashion

Current Rockstar fashion is taking a turn back to the nineties. Iconic pieces like overalls and hoop earrings are making a comeback with just a little bit of a modernized twist. Find out how to rock old favorites in a fresh way to fit in with the rock scene these days.

Accessories

Choker necklace styles are hot throughout the rock scene. “Tattoo” style plastic chokers in classic black and all sorts of other hues are popular, particularly paired with longer necklaces and pendants. This necklace stacking technique creates a three dimensional display right over an edgy top. Ribbon, velvet, and small charms are also hits in the choker realm.

Hoops are back. Large, metallic circles adorn different music stars’ lobes as they perform, just like they did several decades ago. Silver, gold, and rhinestone patterns alike are making their way into celeb rock scenes across the US.

Scrunchies in solids, patterns, textures, and different widths are entering back into play in the rock scene. While scrunchies are practical in that they are less likely to break hair than elastics, they also add a touch of pizzazz. Nineties style scrunchies are the perfect way for rock musicians, male and female alike, to keep locks out of their faces while jamming out.

Tops

Crops are everything. Rather than cropped tanks, tees and sweaters are getting the hack job and being worn to show off midriffs with flared jeans or high-waisted “mom jeans.” Crops with graphic images, slogans, and characters from various shows are gaining popularity, as are different knits with bold stripes. Some are neutral while others boast bold, bright colors. Basic black is always a hit, regardless of rock venue.

Bottoms

Overalls are making a comeback. According to our friends at Pickup Plug, lead guitarists are once again rockin’ it out with one shoulder strap unbuckled. Corduroy, basic black, patterned, and cutoff, these classic bottoms are being paired with crops, turtlenecks, and all sorts of other tops to create nineties-inspired masterpieces.

Flared jeans are coming back to life. While skinnies are a classic, super cigarette style jeans are fading while larger hems are making their way back to the scene. Washes in light, dark, and medium are flooding stages everywhere in lots of different distressed patterns. Wait for the patches and sequins to make appearances and the good old 1990’s will reign again in all their glory.

Shoes

Platforms, Birks, Chucks, Mary Janes, and basic pool slides are all making their way back into the fashion scene for rock musicians. Platforms extend all the way from heels to sneakers to oxfords. Different shoes adopt chunky, rubber soles with different levels of traction to make a statement all their own. Birkenstocks take on different forms of sandals to appeal to a wide variety of aesthetic tastes. Chuck Taylors are the epitome of a classic sneaker; black is perfect for a rock concert. Mary Janes may fall into the platform category or come with a skinnier sole, depending on the particular style. Perhaps pool slides are donned after the concert to give feet a break from the grind.

Accessories, tops, bottoms, and shoes are all fair game for the nineties trend as it returns to the rock music scene. Enjoy this blast from the past while it lasts; soon another trend will be taking over for US rockstars.
