Summer has finally returned, and once again brought with it the growing yearning to leave the office at the end of the week. No longer committed to burying ourselves under blankets and delivery food, the weekend now presents us with the opportunity to stretch our legs and head out to shops, patios, and of course, rooftop bars. This wildly popular Saturday social scene boasts as many new season fashions as it does overpriced cocktails, both of which are necessary for the perfect Instagram shot. Here, we detail three different looks for weekend rooftop parties that are as alluring and fresh as the summery drinks they emulate.
Just like the drink, this ensemble is simple and guaranteed to be enjoyed by everyone in large volumes. The bermuda short we all thought was dead forever (a fact which we were perhaps relieved about), has been resurrected in the last year or so on countless runways and street style photos. This pair by Conquista is the perfect intersection between breezy comfort and effortlessly enviable that’s desired for a day party look. Pair with a simple white button down whose blousy sleeves contrast exquisitely with the slim lines of the heeled black Dear Frances boot and oversized MALU wayfarers. This effervescent look brings high fashion silhouettes to the summery blitheness that every rooftop partier seeks to achieve.
Call on the vibrant blues of a tropical escape with this captivating blue rippled top. The extremely lightweight material will keep you perfectly cool while the beautiful ocean wave-inspired ruffle detail will have you looking as graceful as a jellyfish among the humid hoards of rooftop goers. Opt for maximum summer comfort in blue-toned relaxed grey trousers and white sneakers. Complement the glint of the blouse with a Mria Jewelry sterling silver opalith ring, pour over ice and serve.
