As we start to reemerge into the world and fill up our social calendars again, dressing for specific dress codes is something we’re faced with navigating. One of them is garden party attire. Unlike more cut-and-dry dress codes like black-tie or cocktail attire, there’s a pretty big gray area when it comes to putting together a look for a garden party. Are florals a must? Are high heels a bad idea? There’s a lot to think about. Instead of navigating the dos and don’ts of the dress code, though, we went ahead and created an outfit guide to keep things simple.
The below eight looks encapsulate the cheery summertime vibe of a garden party while striking the right balance between dressy and casual. So if you have an outdoor function coming up on your calendar, simply take a look at these outfits and re-create them for yourself. Yep, we even completed each of them with shopping options, as we tend to do. Don’t worry—you’ll only find one floral dress in this whole story (okay fine, two). Continue on for all the garden party outfit inspiration you could need.
