To make sure you enjoy the event to the fullest, Below I’ve come up with 18 outfit ideas for both boys and girls!

1. What to wear to an oyster roast guys? Shirt and jeans
As you can tell, the oyster roast is not a fancy activity so all you need to dress is casual wear.
For guys, think of a T-shirt, jeans, khaki, and sneakers as failproof.
Of course, if you want to add d dash of southern man flare, a striped Oxford button is such a classic staple.
2. Layer up and keep it sleek for an oyster roast
If it’s chilly out there, layering up with the right outerwear is essential.
As you will stay active most of the time ( Carry the bucket, open the oyster), a baggy puffer jacket is the last thing you want.
Instead, go for the hassle-free sleeveless jacket so you can move your arms without any constrict.
3. What to wear to oyster roast in summer?
For the summer days, go for breathable and lightweight clothes as high chance you will be super duper hot.
Think crop top, billowy culottes, and linen dress that are as cute as it is practical.
And of course, a wide-beam straw hat is a must-have under the baking sun.
4. What to NOT wear to oyster roast?
For the fashionista who loves the oversized shirt, DON’T. You will be super clumsy when trying to open the oyster.
It’s best you wear the 3/4 sleeve or at least your sleeve can be rolled up.
5. What to NOT wear to oyster roast?
If you want to blend in with the crowd and have fun, don’t wear an elegant long lace dress as it will look super weird.
And if you are careless like me, you may also avoid any expensive fabric like silk, cashmere, suede as they are the fabric that needs to be dry-cleaned in case you get some stains on them.
Of course, a white dress can be another dangerous choice. Don’t forget those ketchup!
6. What to wear to oyster roast ladies?
Oyster roast comes in all different types and includes wine festivals and outdoor games.
For a stylish get-up in fall, a chic shacket and a functional pair of boots are the must-have.
Many ladies wear cowboy boots for the festival, it just looks like you’ve given a thought to your look.
7. What to wear to oyster roast at night?
So here’s the understated outfit idea, a cape or poncho. Oyster roast can last for a good few hours and even a whole day.
But If you want to join the bonfire party at night, cozy outerwear like a poncho just comes in handy.
Plus they look super cute!
This is so random… BUT
8. Wear the right shoes for oyster roast
If it’s chilly out there, a pair of preppy boots like Sperry’s and LLBean just seal the deal.
As a traditional Southern event like an oyster roast, you can see people wear these brands in fall and winter a lot.
But seriously, a classic pair of Sperry boots is a must-have.
They are versatile, durable, warming, water-proof, and most importantly, go well with everything.
Such a good investment.
If you prefer the aesthetic, feminine style, these white Sperry boots are the hot seller of the season.
I am glad that this brand is keeping track of the latest fashion. The sherpa sealing is so cute.
9. Don’t wear accessories to the oyster roast
It seems a piece of silly advice, but let me tell ya, many ladies never thought of taking off the rings and bracelets in the first place.
