6 Fashion Bloggers Show How to Dress for a Summer Picnic

Don’t know what to wear for your next summer picnic? Go for dresses! I know there are only so many dresses you can wear during summer until it starts getting boring, but you can shake it up with different kinds of frocks. Dresses don’t come in just one design, thankfully!

At picnics, you should be able to enjoy yourself and not worry about having a wardrobe malfunction or suffering from any clothing discomfort. Make sure you wear something nice and stylish but comfortable at the same time.

Here are a few suggestions:

1. Fit-and-Flare Dress by Michèle K. from The Fashion Fraction

Michelle

If there is a dress panacea that can cure fashion bugs, it’s the fit-and-flare dress. At least for me. It’s the perfect dress that will instantly make you feel prettier, thanks to its girly shape.

Michèle’s gorgeous rose-printed dress is a perfect fit! It bares just the right amount of leg skin to beat the summer heat.

What could be more appropriate for this sweltering season than nautical dresses? Stripes and anchor prints will make you fit right into the vibe of summer picnics. We love Maren’s gorgeous blue-and-white striped dress. It’s simple but classic, so you can wear it for many more summers to come.

Gingham-printed dresses are all the rage this summer. Jump into the bandwagon, and bask under its old-school charm. Opt for a loose-fitting gingham-printed dress like the one Lily wore to a festival. Wear it with oxfords or summer boots.

Hi-lo dresses will never get old, we assume. The asymmetric structure of the dress offers instant pick-me-upper in case you are feeling uninspired. This dress worn by Tineey is so pretty with its water color and floral pattern!
