As the weather heats up, we look forward to outdoor events more than ever — we're all a little happier when the sun goes down, right? So, naturally, we're pumped for all the summer movie screenings happening right now. You can find a pretty comprehensive list here; the food truck-friendly NoMa Summer Screen, Capitol Riverfront Front Flicks, and National Harbor's Movies on the Potomac series are all at the top of our lists. Of course, a stellar night out should include a can't-miss ensemble — and luckily, we've pulled together just what you need. A light cotton dress is the definition of summery chic, especially when it's paired with a '70s-inspired jean jacket and sleek sandals. Jazz the outfit up with a bright necklace, and bring along a comfy blanket and a roomy tote for storing plenty of snacks. Now, all you need to do is stake out the perfect spot on the lawn.
