Reader Anisha writes, “Hello, my
name is Anisha and I will be going to Cedar Point for my birthday next
month in June. I want to still look cute and fashionable while riding
rides and of course for my birthday, but I need an outfit inspiration!
The key component to a stylish amusement park
look is comfort. You’ll be spending a lot of time standing in long lines
in the sweltering heat, so you’re number one priority is to be
comfortable. Keeping this in mind, I styled a few looks that should keep
you nice and cool as well as fashionably chic as you celebrate your
For the first look, I opted for a printed playsuit option accented by a light pink Coach Legacy leather swingpack and clear-frame tinted sunglasses (this pair pictured is no longer available, find a similar style here). Make your choice of footwear with a pair of white Chloe strappy flat sandals or a pair of lime green American Apparel unisex tennis shoes.
Add in a few fun accessory items including a spring green clasp wire bracelet, gold hoop earrings, a soft pink lip, and a vivid nail polish option to complete this outfit.
Although Bermuda shorts are a classic summer
wardrobe option, they are making a huge comeback as a stylish
alternative to a denim cutoff, so for look #2 I styled a pair of pink Bermuda shorts with a navy striped tank top and grey Converse sneakers.
Add a few feminine touches to this sporty look with a trendy white Rebecca Minkoff Quinn bucket shoulder bag, a pair of purple tinted aviator shades, a gold monogram necklace, and Asos Saucer stud earrings. Lastly, throw in a lip gloss option and your trusty camera to capture a few birthday moments.
Continue the printed theme with a pair of black and white dot print shorts topped with a simple white tank top and a denim jacket. Work in a pair of Chloe two-tone leather sandals, a leather crossbody handbag, and Marni round-frame sunglasses.
Keep your jewelry options to a minimum with a simple bar necklace, a pair of stud earrings, and add a pop of color with a vivid red lip as the finishing touch.
For your final wardrobe option, create a fun and youthful ensemble with destroyed denim cutoffs accented by a graphic muscle tank, a pair of Keds Double Dutch stripe tennis shoes, and baroque jeweled stud earrings. Carry everything you’ll need for the day including a pair of aviator shades and tinted lip balm in a nude J.Crew bucket bag.
And if you’re planning to ride any water rides, pack a stylish swimsuit option like this Zimmerman Brightside Floating Underwire Floral print bikini and a pair of printed yellow flat sandals.
