In this post I am sharing some chic and stylish outfit formulas that for your next winery trip or even for your downtown casual wine tasting event. These events are really fun summer events but often a confusing one in terms of how you want to dress.
You definitely don’t want to look too fancy because wine tasting always feels laidback and an enjoyable event where you also want to feel comfortable. But at the same time you also don’t want to look frumpy and too casual and specially if you want to take some cute pictures.
The outfit formulas that I am sharing can be easily recreated and really chic but at the same time really comfortable that you will feel amazing wearing them.
Dress Outfit Formulas
Dresses are always the perfect chic and outdoor piece that will look great for wine tasting, but you don’t have to wear really fancy dresses, so I am sharing some outfit formulas with dresses that you can also wear everyday or other occasions but you can use them for your winery look as well.
Bohemian Short Dress
This first dress is a perfect bohemian dress for wine tasting. The short length looks great and still looks elegant with the ruffle details. But the long sleeve style the outfit looks elegant and sophisticated.
This style of dress always looks chic for events that are a mix of stylish and yet relaxed. You don’t look like you have put a lot of effort but the outfit still looks stylish. And I think its because of the ruffle details and the keyhole neckline.
Since the dress is of a darker color, I wanted to air accessories that are lighter and will brighten up this dress so I chose a white woven mules that are easy to slip in and out of actually.
This way if you are sitting outside you can also be bare foot. And you can slip in it when you are ready for walking. I kept the hat the same color, but the Fedora style hat looks so chic stylish and completes this bohemian look.
For my handbag, I chose a natural material and this one is easy to pair if you want to have a picnic in the vineyard you can carry your food in it too.

A slip dress is the ultimate summer dress which is versatile and can be worn for so many different events. And the best part is that you can dress it up or dress it down depending on where you want to wear it.
I also chose a colored slip dress because you don’t necessarily only have to buy a black slip dress. A colored dress will work as well. But the dress by itself can feel a bit fancy and I wanted it to look a bit laidback. So, I added a linen shirt and tied it in the front that brings a casual touch to this dress and dresses it down.
With this combination, I feel like the outfit was looking more tropical so I paired them with espadrilles that adds sophistication to the entire look. I still wore a straw hat to have coverage if I am sitting outside and doing some amazing wine tasting in a pretty vineyard.
And the straw handbag looks so good with this outfit so had to add it as well.
A shirt dress does not have to be formal or boring. It has a lot more potential than just wearing to Sunday church, to work or kids birthday parties. In this outfit I am wearing this really neutral polka dotted ankle length short dress that is more appropriate for everyday.
But I unbuttoned a couple of buttons at the bottom of the dress which instantly transforms this dress into more effortless chic dress that you can wear to a romantic event.
Since the dress is really neutral and plain Jane, I added a wide wester style belt to add some personality and it also elevates this entire look. It also creates a feminine waistline and compliments this outfit.
For my footwear I chose black espadrille wedges which adds more elegance but the color does not over power the outfit. And that is also the reason why I went with a black straw hat.
Top & Skirt Outfit Formulas
You can really create a lot of different outfits with a top and skirt so I wanted to show you two simple outfit formulas that you can dress up and down depending on what you feel like wearing to your wine tasting.
This outfit combination always looks chic no matter what because the skirt always brings in a feminine touch to your overall look.
Puff Sleeve Top & Faux Leather Skirt
In this outfit formula I am wearing a simple blue with small printed puff sleeve top that is so versatile and is like an everyday top that you can wear but I am pairing it with a colorful yellow faux leather midi skirt.
It does not have to be a faux leather material, but pairing a darker top with a brighter skirt automatically elevates the entire look. This is like my effortless chic outfit that is elevated just by itself.
For my footwear, I chose strappy sandals because the midi skirt is making me look short because of cutting me right in the middle of the calf. The strapped sandals shows more of my legs which elevates and makes me look taller.
You do not have to probably do anything else with this outfit so, I just chose a simple crossbody bag that just compliments the outfit but not overpowering.
Bodysuit & Peasant Skirt
The Peasant skirt is one of the most popular skirt style that easily turns any look into boho chic look. You can wear it with anything and it still looks cute effortless and fun. But here, I am wearing it with a black bodysuit that highlights the yellow skirt.
A bodysuit actually feels better when you wear it with the skirt because everything stays tucked in and put together instead of riding up. But if you choose to wear a t shirt, then adding a thick belt will also keep the top stay intact as well create a stylish and elevated look with a waist definition.
For my shoes I chose platform sandals that elevate the gives me a but of height. It also is open toe so it adds a chic touch to the entire look.
Because of the light colored skirt I chose a tan hat and bag that would brighten up the whole look even if you are wearing a black top for summer. This is great way to style all your black t shirts and still look bright and fun for summer.
Jeans & Top Outfit Formulas
Jeans could be excellent bottoms if you are heading for a casual indoor wine tasting location where you don’t necessarily want to look extremely cute or decked up as they say it. But you don’t have to look casual with them as well.
I am sharing two outfit ideas with the same straight leg jeans which has a ripped detail in it which looks really casual.
Jeans & Puff Sleeve Top
In this outfit formula I am wearing a 3/4th sleeve top which has yellow and pink prints on a white base. This is a classic bohemian top that is more sophisticated and elevated. And you can totally wear it in summer.
Just because it is hot, does not mean you have to wear tank top with everything. The top instantly makes this outfit look more elegant and mature. You can totally wear this outfit to a wine tasting bar in your downtown location where you do not necessarily need to dress up a lot.
It looks laid back as well as stylish. Since I am wearing a straight leg jeans which almost covers my ankles, I chose open toe mule sandals that elongates my legs as well as add a summer touch to this outfit.
I wanted to add my fedora hat that brings in that western yet bohemian vibe to this entire look. And you can use any crossbody bag, but I chose my wicker bag because it just looks perfect for this casual laidback summer look.
Jeans & Ruffle neck Top
This outfit combination will be great for outdoor wine tasting as well where you still want to wear jeans. I chose a ruffle neck top that brings in some sophistication and a feminine touch to this casual ripped jeans.
The ruffles looks so cute and also dress up the jeans so, you literally do not need anything else to accessorize this outfit. So I decided to keep my shoes and hat more on the tan side so that they compliment this bright colored top and complete this bohemian yet really comfy outfit that you can wear to indoor as well as outdoor wine tasting locations.
Straight leg jeans are my absolute favorite for summer because they look stylish and flatter any body shape and at the same time are more comfortable than skinny jeans when its hot out.
