What to Wear to a Summer Barbecue

first_img The Ultimate Pillow Guide: The 6 Best Pillows for All Sleepers It’s almost summertime and you know what that means—grill-outs on grill-outs on grill-outs! If you’re anything like us, your summer calendar is already full of weekend BBQs and for good reason: there’s no better way to celebrate this sunny season than with friends, ice-cold bevvies, and plenty of delicious grilled meats.But what are you supposed to wear to a grill-out? While there’s no strict dress code, why not use it as an excuse to flaunt your casual style? Think crisp lines, lightweight fabric, and colors that’ll still look great when streaked with hot sauce.To get you started on building the perfect outfit for your next summer BBQ, check out some of our recs below.Patagonia Go To Shirt $69When it comes to the perfect top for a summer BBQ, there are a few things I like to keep in mind. First and foremost, I always go with a dark color to better conceal the inevitable food and sweat stains that’ll appear as the night drags on. Secondly, I want a shirt that’s going to stay comfortable no matter the weather, so I’ll usually opt for something that’s both functional and stylish. Considering these important variables, this classic button down from Patagonia is a no-brainer. The navy blue is guaranteed to at least appear clean throughout the evening while the lightweight blend of cotton and polyester is going to keep you feeling cool. Plus, you can either dress it up or down depending on the party’s vibe.See ItSummer Weight Chino $98While you could certainly pair this top with a dark jean, I say why not amp up your look with a simple summer chino? These cotton pants are incredibly breathable and designed to make any outfit look effortlessly fashion-forward. A double cuffed ankle with an untucked shirt is perfect for a more casual grill out, while a single cuff and a crisply tucked top make for something altogether more sophisticated.See ItAce Sandal $85Thankfully there are a lot of great shoe options for the outfit that we’ve built thus far. A colorful sneaker or a playful espadrille would do nicely here, but I think your best bet is going to be a handsome sandal like this flip-flop from Ace. The premium leather is paired with a plush foam foot bed, making for an insanely comfortable shoe that’ll leave you feeling fantastic as you mill about the party. The subtle white detail on the bridge makes for the perfect accent against the light khaki chinos and the silhouette is about as traditionally summer as you can get.See ItDowning Sunglasses $95To top off your ensemble, consider this pair of sunglasses from Warby Parker. As with the rest of this outfit, these specs offer a classic silhouette done up in a contemporary style, making them irresistibly timeless. The pop of green will also look fantastic against both the dark navy of the shirt and the light khaki of the Chinos. And in case you’re wondering, these bad boys also come with polarized lenses, so you’ll be able to squint at the sun all evening long. See ItBlack Ceramic Flask $92Now, I don’t think you have to drink to have a good time, but if you roll with a particularly rowdy group of friends, it may not be a bad idea to bring some libations of your own to the party. While you might want to bring a bottle of tequila for everyone else, slip your preferred drink into this cool AF ceramic flask from MGCO. It’ll fit easily into your pocket and your alcohol won’t get that weird metal taste you sometimes experience with cheaper flasks.

UN food agency launches emergency effort to aid half a million Palestinians

Warning that thousands of Palestinians were no longer able to afford basic needs, the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) today launched an emergency operation to help feed about half a million non-refugees living amid dramatically deteriorating conditions in the Palestinian Territories.”Hunger and malnutrition are rapidly increasing among the Palestinians,” said WFP Regional Director Khaled Adly. “Even when food is available in some of the markets, many impoverished Palestinians have become increasingly unable to meet all their food needs.”The Rome-based UN agency which said it hopes to provide about 70,000 tons of food to help the most needy Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza Strip until the end of the year, currently had about 29,000 tons available for the eight-month programme. With the 41,000-ton deficit estimated to cost about $18 million, WFP has appealed for funds to cover the shortage.WFP voiced particular concern about some 360,000 extremely poor Palestinians, 60 per cent of whom belong to families where the breadwinner is a single mother, elderly, handicapped or chronically ill. The UN agency’s assistance will also go to help about 130,000 people who have lost their income as one or more members of the family lost their jobs in Israel due to security measures.Moreover, many hospitals and other social institutions have become unable to meet all the food needs of poor Palestinians using their services, WFP said, noting that it will provide food aid to about 10,000 people in these institutions, including children, anaemic women and the elderly.Even before the current crisis, many needy Palestinians had been dependent on special assistance provided by both the Palestinian Authority’s Ministry of Social Affairs and WFP.”Over the past three months, the Palestinian Authority has been unable to ensure the payment of the monthly cash assistance to these vulnerable people, leaving WFP as their main lifeline,” Mr. Adly said, voicing concern over restriction on access to some of these communities. read more
