Dresses for Your Little Girl’s Outdoor Adventure

Nothing defines summer as a delicious outdoor meal, whether an elegant gourmet picnic in the countryside or a casual lunch with friends and family at your local park. Before heading out for your next family picnic, ensure you have all the right gear. You’ll need a picnic basket, blanket, plates, and utensils. And a folding picnic table, of course.

Striped Dresses

Every wardrobe is complete with a janieandjack.com classic striped dress. It’s a style that’s been around forever and yet somehow continues to get refreshed. The right stripes can elongate petite frames and produce a cinching effect in the waist. A rainbow-striped dress embodies all the rainbow colors with its fun design and bow detail on both shoulders. It’s perfect for festivals and carnivals and comes in extended sizes to fit kids of all ages. If she loves showing her team spirit at games, a poppin’ sleeve stripe dress is perfect.

Ruffle Dresses

Ruffles are an ultra-feminine detail that adds a lot of movement to any dress. Whether going to a formal event or spending time with friends and family, she’ll feel like a princess in this ruffle-embellished look. Opt for a solid-colored accessory palette and neutral shoes to make this style even more sophisticated and polished. Using too many prints or colors can draw attention away from the beautiful movement of the dress. A ruffle dress with a fun scalloped edge is perfect for girls who want to go out with their feminine look. The navy base is flattering and pairs well with pinks, yellows, reds, and other hues. Pair this dress with a woven plaid tote and velveteen loafers for an elegant ensemble. She can always layer a blazer over a wrap dress to look more formal. The sleeveless silhouette has a sleek cowl neck, and the bottom hem features ruffles for additional movement and a cinch in the waist.

Floral Dresses

While floral prints can be a spring and summer staple, they shouldn’t be stowed away come fall. You can quickly wear a floral dress during the chillier months by layering it with a black jacket and hiding wool socks under it. This look is fun to dress up with the simple, sleek cowl neck dress and make it more casual for a school field trip, family brunch, or music recital. A floral dress can be an age-appropriate and fun option for a flower girl at a wedding, especially when paired with a veil or headpiece. Try a puffed sleeve mini for an ultra-feminine look, or go bolder with a meadowy wildflower pattern. Elevate your florals with a long sleeve floral chiffon dress, ideal for a wedding picnic or bridal shower party. You can get tropical with a short bodycon mini printed with large palm leaves or a dainty romantic vibe with an all-over burgundy rose pattern.

Lace Dresses

While dresses are not the first thing that comes to mind when planning an outdoor picnic, they can be a bright and comfortable option. The key is to choose a lightweight fabric that will help wick away moisture and keep you cool. A silk or cotton dress is ideal. And remember to pack a hat and sunglasses to protect your eyes from the sun. Another tip is to stick with pastels. This will give you a more feminine look while also keeping your outfit from looking too busy. For example, a pink lace dress will pair well with a floppy sun hat. A light, airy lace dress can also serve as a cover-up for your beach bag. Just pair it with a slip that is not the same color as your dress since sand can easily ruin delicate fabrics like lace. And be sure to roll your clothing instead of folding it to prevent wrinkles.
