Summer party season is in full swing. From poolside get-togethers and backyard barbeques to park picnics and rooftop cocktails, sun-filled days and moonlit nights inspire warm-weather celebrations of every kind. As invites land in your inbox, we’d like to help you conquer those potential “I have nothing to wear” moments, by giving you a fresh dose of outfit inspiration. We’ve hand-picked five easy breezy looks that’ll make you want to RSVP yes to any event.


1. Poolside Party

The key to poolside dressing is finding a look that will allow you to transition from cocktails and mingling to lounging and swimming with ease. With a sleek one-piece swimsuit at the base and shorts or a sarong on top, you can easily shift from pool to party and back again without too much fuss.

2. Backyard Barbeque

Whether you’re working the grill or basking in the company of family and friends, you can’t go wrong with a Bardot neckline and a simple silhouette. A soft and breathable fabric, such as Tencel, will allow you to strike the perfect balance between comfy and chic.

Written by Sarah Sussman

Born and raised in the city of endless festivals and world-famous gastronomy, Sarah considers herself a true Montrealer. From the undeniably genius blend of squeaky cheese curds, fries and gravy to the breathtakingly beautiful European-inspired architecture, it’s easy for this city girl to find plenty to love in the place she is proud to call home. When she is not enjoying time with her family and seriously contemplating whether to order sushi or pizza while at home with her husband and kids, Sarah is likely pushing herself to the limit through intense boxing workouts and trying her very hardest not to jaywalk.
