Shopping Guide: Fantastic Looks For Every Summer Outing

It’s getting hot! It’s getting so unbearably hot that one can no longer just throw on a dress, black tights and a cool jacket for every occasion. …One has to think a little more critically. So, here’s our picks for excellent summer activites: cocktail parties, BBQs, mini golf and picnic dates (assuming people still do that).

We’ve also done summer office looks and plenty of swimsuit coverage.

      Did you really reccommend I spend almost $400 on a mini-golf look? Really? For mini-golf? Realllllly.

      Almost $1000 on a OUTDOOR CONCERT look? Where people are drinking/doing drugs and half the time the mud takes over? Okay- that’s gonna happen.

      And just to round it out- $800 to sit on the ground and eat food & wine. Yup. Practical. Thanks.

      You couldn’t even do a this is the high-end this is the real life prices with this? Come the fuck on….

        I’m pretty sure these are just suggestions for the idea of an outfit, not telling you to go out and buy the exact items. It’s meant as a GUIDE hence uh, shopping guide?

      These are all good options except the romper at a music festival. From experience, trying to pee in a porta-potty (or anywhere) in a romper can be a very difficult and time-consuming process — especially when it’s pitch black in those nasty restrooms! I won’t be making that mistake again. I think shorts are the best way to go.

      Hey Francesca,

      I hear you on the guide thing. I just think it could be more comprehensive. I don’t need a Prada heel to show me that a classic black stilletto is helpful when dressing for a day on the job at the Bank. There’s other shoes out there… Give me a range.

      What’s I love about this site is that it constantly gives you a varied spectrum of options/ideas/price ranges based on the styles offered. This felt like a posting sponsored by Net-a-Porter.

      And with the outings listed it just felt way off base. To me. My opionion.

      But…isn’t it more fun to look at the Prada heels? I know what a black stiletto looks like–I can go to Macy’s and buy a pair for not-rich people. It’s much more fun to ooh and aah over the Prada shoes that I will probably never even see in person. And I don’t think anyone’s recommending Net-A-Porter; it’s the style of outfit that’s being recommended.

      If you like the outfit, you have the idea…now go to Old Navy.
