What to Wear to Rock BBQ Parties

When summer is around BBQ beckons. The weather is so that you either feel like inviting family and friends for a delectable BBQ or you will be invited to one. If you are invited, you already know for a fact that you will not just be meeting the regular people but you will also be meeting a few new people or those who you have not met for a long time. Although BBQ demands casual in an intimate family-only affair when it is a sizeable gathering you must consider what you wear. Dressing too casually can make you come across as sloppy especially in front of your brother’s new girlfriend or a new friend your friend brought to the BBQ.

Here are a few tips that can help you put together a great ensemble for your BBQ party. When it is casual you obviously think of t-shirt, it is way too casual and predictable, try a polo shirt instead. It keeps you cool in the hot summer and the button up style and collar adds a formal touch. These days the polo shirt has taken a totally new avatar and comes in great fits and patterns. An awesome patterned polo shirt gives a cool holiday vibe while looking different from the crowd who mainly end up in plain polo shirts or casual t-shirts. The patterns will make your ensemble look sharp. Darker colours are preferred as lighter colours may stain due to the dripping sauces or spluttering oil. Another option is a great linen shirt. Linen has a rather relaxed look and feel to it, while a cotton shirt can look more formal.
Polo Shirts for Men
Jeans is opted by many, however, if you want to try something different you can either go with chinos or shorts. Shorts also come in chino style with fly zip and great prints these days. Other than that there are great denim shorts with awesome embroidery on them which can be a totally new look. Do keep in mind, if you are wearing patterned bottoms opt for plain tops.
Denim Shorts for men
You can even add a layer of summer blazer made of linen if your BBQ party may extend into the evening that can go well with chinos or shorts and also make you look dapper. Matching your clothing with a pair of great summer shoes will complete your ensemble. You can also go for sandals but since you are going for a smart casual look, shoes are preferred. Go for boat shoes that go well with chinos and shorts too and still adds a sharp look to your ensemble.
Scotch and Soda Chinos
Accessorize with sunglasses since most BBQs are held in the afternoon sunglasses will be a necessity too. Now with your perfect dressing it is not just the steak that is on fire, it might be that new lady who just attended the BBQ, who knows where it will lead to in the future!
