How To Dress Up For Outdoor Events

You’ve got your outfit planned, but now you’re wondering how to dress up for an outdoor event. You could have all the outfits in the world and still look like a ragamuffin if you don’t know how to put them together correctly. That’s why we’re here: to help you dress comfortably for any occasion!

Choose comfortable shoes.

  • Choose comfortable shoes. For example if you want to wear derby shoes first check their comforts level than buy it.
  • Avoid heels or high-top shoes that can be uncomfortable to walk in.
  • Wear shoes that have a good grip on the surface you are walking on and make sure they don’t slip off easily!
  • Choose breathable footwear so your feet don’t get hot and sweaty in the heat of summer or winter weather conditions.

Color coordinate

Color coordinating is one of the easiest ways to look good. Just choose a color scheme whether you are wearing a party wear or casual wear and stick to it. If you’re going for something more casual, try pairing black with white or gray. For something dressier, go for navy blue and black or tan/brown shades.

For men: Matching your tie with your shoes is not only stylish but also makes you look taller! Try wearing a white shirt under a dark suit jacket (in case there’s any spillage). For women: The same rules apply–you want to look professional without looking stuffy or boring at all!

Stay dry.

  • Wear sunscreen.
  • Wear a hat.
  • Wear sunglasses, even if you’re not going to be out in the sun all day and night, because they can help protect your eyes from debris and dust if it starts raining while you’re out there.
  • Pack an umbrella or rain poncho just in case the weather takes a turn for the worse!

The first thing to consider is the weather.

The first thing to consider is the weather. Even if you have a safe place to stay in case of bad weather and dress for it, it’s always good to be prepared with an extra layer or two in case your outfit gets soaked or winded.

  • Look up the forecast and plan accordingly! If there’s going to be rain, bring an umbrella and/or rain boots (depending on how much water you’ll encounter). If there’s going to be sun, sunscreen may be necessary depending on how long your outdoor event will last; if so, don’t forget this important accessory!
  • If possible, bring some warm clothes just in case the temperature drops drastically during your outing–it could happen!

Layering is key.

Layering is key to dressing for an outdoor event, especially if the temperature is supposed to drop or the forecast calls for rain. You want to be able to layer up or down depending on how cold it gets, and wearing just one or two layers won’t give you that flexibility.

If you’re going somewhere where there’s likely to be rain–a picnic in a park, say, or an outdoor concert–it helps if all of your clothes are made of materials that keep water out: waterproof boots; pants made out of a breathable but waterproof fabric like Gore-Tex; and maybe even an umbrella (if it rains).

Protecting your skin is also important.

  • Wear sunscreen.
  • Wear a hat and sunglasses.
  • If you’re going to be out in the sun for a long time, consider wearing a scarf or bandana over your face as well as on your head to protect against harmful rays and keep cool at the same time!

Choose quality over quantity.

  • Don’t overdo it with accessories. You don’t want to look like a walking jewelry store, so keep your jewelry simple and understated. If you’re going for something more formal, then stick to one piece of statement jewelry–maybe a necklace or bracelet that you can wear throughout the day (and night).
  • Buy quality items that will last longer than the cheap stuff that falls apart after one use. For example: if you’re buying new shoes for an outdoor event, buy ones made from leather instead of plastic because they’ll last longer and hold up better when they get wet or muddy (which happens often at outdoor events).

If you’re going for boots, go tall rather than short.

If you’re going for boots, go tall rather than short.

Boots can be uncomfortable and expensive, but they’re great for outdoor events because they keep your feet warm and dry. Boots are also stylish and comfortable enough to wear with many different outfits–you can even wear them in many different seasons!

Don’t forget about your accessories and jewelry.

Accessories and jewelry are a great way to add some color to your outfit. Jewelry can also be a great way to express yourself, especially if you’re not good at speaking up for yourself. It doesn’t have to be expensive or fancy; in fact, some of my favorite pieces were made by my friends! And don’t forget about those special events: maybe it was your birthday or graduation day–keep those memories alive by wearing something that reminds you of those moments in life!

Don’t forget to dress comfortably and protect yourself from the sun

  • Wear sunscreen. The sun can be harsh, and you don’t want to get burned.
  • Wear a hat. The sun is even more brutal on your face and neck, so be sure to protect yourself with a hat that covers both areas well (and maybe even some of your shoulders).
  • Wear sunglasses! If there’s one thing we’ve learned from those annoying people who wear sunglasses at night, it’s that they look cool as hell when they’re outside in bright sunlight–and so can you if you put on some shades before heading out into the heat of summertime fun!


You should now be equipped with enough knowledge to dress up for any outdoor event. If you are still unsure about how to do this, just remember that the most important thing is being comfortable and protected from the sun. With these two things in mind, it will be easy for you to choose an outfit that looks great!
