Fashion Cents: What to Wear to a Picnic

Friday, August 31, 2012

--By Kimberly Turner

At picnics, I somehow always end up close to the grill and thus grill marks or that bite into my turkey burger leaves barbecue sauce running down my shirt. So I want to answer, "What to wear to a picnic?" with cool and classy but if you are like me, MESSY, you might want to go with a look that keeps you barbecue free. So here are three tips that will help you feel stylish and yet keep you clean:
  1. Layer it -- make a mistake on one layer, you have a clean layer underneath.
  2. Wedge it -- stilettos in the dirt can leave you flat on your face, try a wedge if you need some height but balanced footing.
  3. Cross it -- that's your bag over your shoulder. How else will you balance your burger, drink and purse?
Now check out the video for some picnic looks.
