The Best Picnic Outfits For Al Fresco Dressing

Attention, summer-lovers: picnic season has officially arrived. While the traditional gingham-blanketed al fresco meal depicted in Impressionist paintings may have given way to sitting in a circle of bikes at your local city park, enjoying a Chipotle burrito and sipping wine from a styrofoam cup, there are a few core tenets of picnicking that will never change — warm temperatures, good friends, imbibing in close proximity to the ground, and of course, a cute outfit.
It’s the final point — the ’fit — that we’re here to discuss. The look in question can’t be too precious (you’re going to be sitting in grass, after all), but it should still showcase some summertime flair (whether it’s of the “hot girl” variety is up to you.) In rounding up some fave picnic outfits, we’ve kept our eyes peeled for cool-but-durable looks that will enable you to nap on a blanket, spill some rosé, or toss the ’bee and still maintain a pic-chic appearance.
