• Summer 2014 Style Inspiration: What To Wear To A Company Picnic

    Summer is definitely around the corner, as I sit here melting away in today’s scorching heat. So I’m kicking off this week’s Style Inspiration with a summertime favorite.

    Jessy writes, “Hi Danielle Nicole! My company’s annual picnic is coming up in a few weeks, and I need options that are comfortable, stylish, and appropriate. Any ideas?”

    While an outdoor event definitely calls for a more relaxed and comfortable sartorial pairing, you must keep in mind that you’re attending a work event–so your outfit should be a mix of professional and stylish. Keep things casual yet polished with punchy prints and conservative hemlines and silhouettes.

    For look #1, pair floral cropped trousers with a simple sleeveless button down for a classy and cool ensemble.

    Perk up a chambray tie-front shirt with a printed yellow maxi skirt and a colorful handbag. Add in a few stylish accessories including a metallic band fedora, a beaded necklace, and a soft gold flat.
