weather and longer days undoubtedly calls for social gatherings and
festive merriment. So, today’s what to wear request is right on
Reader EJ writes, “Hey FBD, with the
summer upon us I have been invited to a day party every Saturday and
Sunday for the rest of the month. I am always stumped on what to wear
without breaking the bank or looking like I’m trying too hard. Please
For look #1, opt for a city chic look in a black jersey crop top, mint green pleated midi skirt, and a chunky platform sandal. Round sunglasses, a sleek shoulder bag, and a Panama hat add a trendy touch.
Match your mani to your eyeshadow and pucker up with a glossy finish to complete this sassy summer day look.
Slip into a mesh tank dress and tall cutout gladiator sandals for a sporty chic look. A simple necklace and stacked midi rings give the look a minimalist feel.
Cap things off a palm envelope clutch, aviator shades, and a crisp white manicure.
Rock out in a retro muscle tee and distressed denim shorts. Add a funky edge to the look with a pair of flat gladiator sandals, a spotted leopard print clutch, and gold statement jewelry.
A pink lip and a periwinkle blue nail lacquer add a pastel feel to this casually cool day look.
For the curvy girl looking to party it up this summer, opt for a punchy playsuit and citrus accents to create the perfect day party ensemble.
A beaded necklace, floral print platform sandals, and sassy cat eye sunglasses
give the look a sophisticated and feminine flare. Polish things up with
a peach blush option and a complimenting polish liner combo.
And for you fashionable gents hitting up the day party scene this summer, tap into this chic day look with a Coco Beach muscle tee and a pair of J.Crew cotton-twill shorts.
Give the look a stylish upgrade with a beige panama hat, a striped Gucci belt, aviator shades, and a comfy pair of slip-on sneakers.
