Understanding Garden Party Attire

Definition and Style Guidelines

Garden party attire is a semi-formal dress code perfect for outdoor settings. It's more relaxed than cocktail attire but dressier than casual wear. This style is characterized by light, breathable fabrics and often features floral or botanical patterns to complement the garden environment.

  • Colors and Patterns: Soft pastels, vibrant floral prints, and light neutral tones are common. The colors often reflect the garden setting, emphasizing a connection to nature.

  • Fabrics: Lightweight and breathable materials like cotton, linen, silk, and chiffon are favored. These fabrics contribute to the comfort and relaxed elegance expected at garden parties.

  • Accessories: Accessories play a significant role in garden party attire. Women might wear wide-brimmed hats or delicate fascinators to shield from the sun, while men might opt for straw hats or simple caps. Jewelry is usually understated to complement the softness of the attire. What’s key for the perfect garden party look is a balance between an elegant look that’s also comfortable and semi-casual.

Outfit Ideas

For Women

Dresses are most common, with styles ranging from midi and maxi dresses to elegant sundresses and two-piece skirt-blouse combinations. Depending on how formal you want to go, some women may choose to wear dressy jumpsuits or tailored pantsuits in light colors.

For Men

Men often wear summer suits made of light fabrics, such as linen or lightweight wool, in light colors like beige, light gray, or pastels. Polo shirts and tailored trousers paired with blazers would also look great!


Footwear should be comfortable yet stylish, suitable for walking on grass. Women often wear wedges, flats, or block heels, while men might opt for loafers or dress sandals.


All in all, the goal of this event is to have a good time whether you dress up or not. We don’t require that you dress up, but we do heavily recommend it because it’s all part of the fun! Can’t wait to see you there in your rocking garden party outfits.
