These parties rarely have any kind of dress code. You can wear whatever you like—weather permitting, of course
Nonetheless, to ace the summer-ready look you need colors, shades and accessories.
Spruce up a simple T-shirt by rolling the sleeves up. For shirts, you can go for a preppy look by buttoning up all the way to your neck, or go casual and chic by opening the top buttons and letting your necklace or tattoos show.
For bottoms, bright-colored shorts or pants would do the trick; otherwise, go for a poised look by balancing a graphic top with a pair of black, inconspicuous shorts.
Footwear options can vary from boat shoes to sandals. A proper finishing touch to this look is a stylish pair of shades.
