What to Wear Wine Tasting in Napa?
When you want to look cute, but still be comfortable, a wine tasting outfit that will always work is: sandals, paired with a pretty blouse and your choice of shorts or pants.
We were in Napa in the first week of September so the weather was perfect. September is my favorite time of the year to go wine tasting because the mornings and evenings are crisp, but not too cold, and the temperatures during the day range from 80’s – 90’s. It’s the end of summer but not quite fall. It’s the perfect time to enjoy a glass of wine on a winery patio or deck and take in the gorgeous views.
All Blue Wine Tasting Outfit
I kept the entire outfit very blue, intentional of course. As you know, I’m a big fan of wearing blue so I wanted to try out an entirely blue outfit with a splash of bright color sandals.
This top is a different material and hue of blue from the pants. The shiny silk looks great against the muted blue chinos. The blue structured patent handbag give this casual wine tasting outfit structure and again it’s a different material and color from the other two blues in this outfit.
Remember when you want to wear the same colors in one outfit, select different materials with a slight change in color, that can also mean shiny. In this outfit, the pants are muted, the silk top has a sheen to it and the handbag is shiny.
I mentioned that creating a cute wine tasting outfit is simple all you need are three, maybe four, pieces and you’re ready for wine country.
The pretty blouse can be a cami, off the shoulder, button down, long sleeve or short and in any color or pattern as long as it’s not a t-shirt, because a tee is too casual. Finally, add your choice of shorts or pants.
The cuffed chinos are very comfortable because it’s not very thick and not too tight. These two things that would make this wine tasting trip very uncomfortable.
Lastly, sandals. For this particular look, I’m referring to flat sandals. They can be of any color and style, just make sure the entire outfit is cohesive.
