6 Foolproof Summer Party Outfits to Wear This Summer

I’m the first one to admit that I love a good soirée. If you invite me to a party, the odds are high that I will RSVP “absolutely.” You see, I’m one of those really extroverted people that sometimes fall under the category of “life of the party” (if I do say so myself). I’m just one of those people who is always down. I love to dance, I love to meet new people, and I love a great cocktail. There’s nothing better to me than having a great party on your calendar to look forward to, except maybe planning an outfit to wear to said epic party. Outfit planning for a party is an art form. You have to take into consideration a lot of different factors.

What kind of party is it? Are you going to a rooftop party for your friend’s new engagement or a day party in Brooklyn? Are you off to a chic dinner party uptown or your friend’s birthday bash downtown? Is a beach party coming up? Are you attending your friend’s wedding and planning the wedding-guest look of the year? Whatever the occasion, the key is to think about the event you’re headed to and what vibe you’re going for. For parties, you definitely want to wear something you feel comfortable and confident in, but this is also your time to step out of your comfort zone and spice things up a bit—it’s a party, after all!
