Outdoor dining is the norm nowadays, but you can't get more al fresco than when you sit down at a picnic. We've all adored the idea of setting down a blanket, opening up a basket of scrumptious food, and having a jolly good time on the grass.
While some may think that picnics only happen in one's childhood, we contest that they can be held at any age. Take this as your sign to plan a catch up with a few of your friends in the future over some good food and fresh air (and facemasks, of course).
Along with those, you can't forget the right OOTD. Being outdoors means that easy-going 'fits that keep you looking and feeling cool are the way to go. If you're in need of a refresher course on dressing up for picnics, we've got you. Ahead, we round up 10 fresh outfit ideas that are perfect for any al fresco get-together. Screenshot away!
10 fun outfits to wear for your next picnic date:
1. Oversized Hawaiian Shirt + Cropped Tank Top + Wide-Legged Trousers + Sneakers + Necklace + Tote Bag
Baggy and oversized pieces are key when planning an outdoor look. Bust out your beloved vintage Hawaiian shirt and team it with some flowy trousers for maximum breeziness.
2. Graphic Tee + Mom Jeans + Sneakers + Bucket Hat + Handbag
Don't fret, a classic tee and jeans can totally still be worn to a picnic. As long as you feel snug and ready to chow down in it, the go-to casual attire is more than welcome for this type of affair. Just don't forget to bring along a hat in case it gets too sunny!
3. Oversized Tee + High-Waisted Shorts + Sneakers + Cap + Tote Bag
Nothing beats the comfort and effortless chicness of an oversized shirt and high-waisted shorts outfit. You can either tie up your tee in a knot or tuck it in just so you don't lose your waist. If the first three looks are telling us anything, it's that a carry-all bag is indeed an essential for picnics.
4. Off-Shoulder Top + Checkered Pants + Fun Socks + Sneakers + Sunnies + Gold Jewelry + Handbag
If you feel like dressing up a bit more, try coupling a dainty, smocked off-shoulder top with some checkered pants (which may or may not mirror the print of your picnic blanket) for a fun, casual get-up.
5. Sports Bra + Bike Shorts + Oversized Polo + Sneakers + Jewelry + Handbag
Have a cute workout set you want to wear to your al fresco gathering? Throw it on with an oversized silk polo and some gold bling to instantly elevate the look.
6. Collared Midi Dress + Cap + Handbag + Dad Sneakers
For more sophisticated picnics, try slipping into that structured collared dress you've got hanging in your closet. Dress it down a bit with some chunky sneakers and a cap and you're set to chill on the grass with your peers.
7. Sundress + Kitten Heels + Handbag
Sundresses are great for, well, the sun. You don't need to do much else than just putting it on to look absolutely elegant for any outdoor event. Throw on a pair of cute kitten heels to cap things off on a chic but relaxed note.
8. Crop Top and Midi Skirt Set + Sandals
Don't hesitate to don prints that may or may not resemble the gingham design most picnic blankets have. Hunt for pieces that have vibrant and fun colors in this print to add some zing to your look. Plus points if you can get your hands on an adorable matching set.
9. Sweater Vest + Wide-Legged Trousers + Sneakers + Tote Bag
A sweater vest can be worn casually over a plain shirt, but if you think about it, it can also be some sort of sando when worn on its own, making it perfect for the open air. Either way, it can become picnic-ready when teamed with flowy bottoms and a pair of comfy sneakers.
10. Plaid Midi Dress + Handbag + Jewelry + Platform Boots
When it's time to go big or go home with your al fresco look, let nothing stop you from rocking your best plaid dress and your favorite pair of boots. You'll definitely deserve a cheers when you look this good at your picnic.
