Spill-Proof Summer BBQ Outfits For a Day Of Grilling and Chilling

Summer is nigh, temperatures are (finally) high, and with Memorial Day just around the corner, it's nearly time for the first outdoor barbeque of the season. We love a good old-fashioned cookout more than anything—after all, it combines sunshine and grilled meats, two of our absolute favorite things in the whole wide world. But when it comes to putting together a BBQ-appropriate ensemble, things can get tricky. Anything white (or light-colored in general) is at major risk for stains and spills, super-strappy tops and dresses will leave crazy tan lines in their wake and too-high heels will have you wincing all afternoon.

So in the spirit of summertime—and style assistance—we've put together four outfits that'd look right at home at your next outdoor food fest. From a perfectly printed crop-top-and-skirt combo to a playful romper paired with nautical wedges, click through to see and shop them all! Oh, and happy grilling.

Shorts are an obvious and classic choice for a BBQ. Instead of going with classic cutoffs—versatile as they may be—why not try a tailored skort instead? Mix it up with a chambray button-down and fun printed sneakers, then throw on a visor for a little added UV protection.
