When heading for a garden party, don’t forget your chic hat and sunglasses that sync with your attire. Other than being in vogue, it also protects you from direct sunlight. You may don a lightweight tote bag, woven rattan bags, or embroidered bags to blend with the garden theme. It is advisable not to go for embellished and dangling accessories to keep you looks fuss-free and garden-party appropriate. Instead of stiletto pumps or high-heeled sandals, you may opt for comfortable alternatives like wedges, gladiator sandals, flat strappy sandals, ballet flats, or kitten heels especially if you know you’ll be walking on grass.

Since light and airy are the vibes at a garden party, opt for soft and lightweight fabrics such as cotton, rayon, silk, jersey, chambray, and seersucker as these fabrics are breathable giving you comfort and keeping you fresh. Avoid knits and save your satin and velvet outfits for evening parties. Though you may still wear denim, go for light washes like white or light blue instead of navy and black ones. Instead of denim jeans, go for a denim skirt or shorts to complement the breezy and cool theme of the party. Going for chambray pieces is a better option as its lightweight feel keeps you comfortable while keeping the laid-back theme of the setting.

You may still go for dress pants at the garden party as long as you keep them flowy and comfortable. This means that straight-leg pants are out of the equation. Instead, go for tailored culottes, floral dress pants, formal pajama pants, dressy shorts, and palazzo pants over Bermuda shorts and capri pants. Floral prints are another go-to print for garden parties. Floral printed pants add breezy feel to your outfit without losing the elegance of your outfit. If it’s not floral, go for micro prints on your cotton palazzo pants or dressier silky ones.

When choosing for your prints, floral ones are the best selection to blend in with the garden setting. Just make sure your floral prints are not too vivid to clash with natural garden flowers.

Maxi, mini, and midi length on dresses and skirts give you an uplifting experience. Look your best in a garden party as it’s one of the most pleasurable moments you can take delight in.
