The phrase “find your beach” takes on a whole new meaning in NYC.

Parks were made for lounging, and outdoor dining is bigger and better than ever. But the true queen of warm weather hangs is the rooftop. You don’t need a fancy decked-out roof to make it the perfect summer spot. As long as you have the right party necessities and an A+ outfit to match, any rooftop will do. Read on to see how to make it happen!

Your Rooftop Party Necessities

Half the fun of a rooftop bash is the view, so luckily you don't have to add much to make it an enviable scene. Bring a selection of games for guests to enjoy, like playing cards and a cornhole set. Multiple seating options are essential, so have either beach chairs or a large, cozy blanket for your guests to sit on.

For your menu, make sure you pop some rosé or a sparkling seltzer ('tis the season, after all!). Then, put together a 😍-worthy cheese board to complete your spread. If you want a more substantial food offering, you can't go wrong with pizza.

Your Rooftop Party Outfit Inspiration

An easy, effortlessly stylish set is the perfect outfit recipe for a summer soirée. Our Felix Ruffle Top and Bowie Shorts are the perfect combination of comfortable and cute, especially when paired with Schutz sneakers and gold hoop earrings from Electric Picks. Pro tip: bring a sweater, like our Poppy Crewneck Sweater, in case the temps drop as the sun sets.
