Nothing screams summer more than barbecuing with family and friends. ‘Tis the season for hot dogs, hamburgers, and yummy side dishes. So much fun! And you know what’s even more fun? Deciding on what to wear to a barbecue – yes, it’s a thing. Just ask my fashionable fashionistas because this is what we chose as this month’s style collab. Backyard barbecue-style apparently is a real thing – who knew?
Here in South Florida, it’s hot, hot, hot, and shorts, breezy dresses, and light pants are a must. So let’s see what backyard barbecue-style means to my stylish sisters, some of whom live in different climates. This should be interesting!!
Backyard Barbecue-Style for Me
Backyard Barbecue-Style for the Girls – Link Up!
Nancy’s Fashion Style – “I myself often wear a long dress for such an evening. Firstly, you have less chance of being stung by mosquitoes. And in the evening it usually cools down a bit, and then a long dress is very nice. Preferably also a slightly wider dress or one that is a bit forgiven, because well, with a bbq I always eat too much! This pre-loved dress is really great. Very elastic but also quite thick, so ideal for a person who is always feeling cold like me.”
Ask Suzanne Bell – “Even in the summertime, California evenings can get chilly, which is why for every sundress I own, there must be a coordinating piece to layer on when the sun goes down. See more on how I style one of my favorite maxi dresses on the blog for a day-to-night backyard BBQ-ready look.”
Shelbee on the Edge – “We had a backyard barbecue at my neighbor’s house a few weeks back, so I photographed what I actually wore to her house…this amazing new tie-dye dress that has been in constant rotation since I got it back in May. I am also sharing swimsuit photos in my post…do pop by my blog to see it all!”
Sharing a Journey -“Hosting a summer BBQ is one of the joys of summer, from choosing just the right recipes, tableware, and what to wear. Today I am sharing BBQ favorites, including an airy hostess dress everyone looks great in.”
Amy’s Creative Pursuits – “This year, the 4th of July fell on a Sunday, so I created this patriotic look to wear both to church and then a Backyard BBQ.”
Fashion Trends and Friends and Instagram FashionTandF – “Serving up some white scalloped shorts and a gingham top with ruffled shoulders for some backyard BBQ fun! Shorts over 50 (well, I actually just turned 60)…why not? Gingham is always a great choice in the summer and says backyard summer fun! Wear what you love and feel confident in, and you’ll always look amazing!”
Lucy Bertoldi.com “This month’s Stylish Mondays call for BBQ attire- and this is exactly what I’d style up for enjoying a cookout amongst friends and family. Summer and sunshine want me in bright yellow! So love me some bright, happy color under a large brim hat, cool drinks, great company, and delicious food- I’m ready!”
The Style Splash – “This cotton jumpsuit is super comfortable and looks quite basic ..until you see the back! The sequin parrot gives guests something to look at while I’m tending to the BBQ!”
Pearls and Pantsuits – “The hubs and I grill out every single weekend in the summer…heck, we grill out almost all year long! My typical backyard barbecue outfit usually consists of a swimsuit & cover-up. Still, just in case we have actual company over, I would probably wear my fav Bermuda shorts and a cute top, like this one from Old Navy… I love the smocking detail.”
High Latitude Style – “Backyard BBQ in Alaska means potluck, and all meat and fish you eat was killed by one of your friends. When you are not a hunter or into fishing, you bring whatever grows in your yard. Dressing wise means combat or hiking boots, jeans, and a tightly woven shirt to not become dinner for the mosquitoes when the BBQ is in the evening. When the event is in the afternoon, a skirt like I wear in the photo is fine.”
Michele – On Instagram as Seechele_styles – “Bbq style to me means a thrifted striped dress and plaid bag that is thrifted too. Sneakers are a must too while at a bbq.”
