What’s this? Another bank holiday? It’s time to celebrate the warm weather (and the time off) by heading outdoors to soak up the sun. After all, it’s not a bank holiday without an alfresco lunch or two! Whether you’re picnicking with your family or stocking up on champagne for an afternoon with the girls, it’s important to dress for the weather!
This season, we’ve channeled the 60s for our picnic looks – think retro shapes, bright colours, and lots and lots of dresses! Of course, we’re hoping that the weather holds up for one more bank holiday, but if it doesn’t…be sure to pack a jacket!
So, without further ado, here’s how to make your picnic outfit pop:
Stripe It Up
First thing’s first: pick a dress that you can be comfortable in, because unless you’re packing a collapsible chair, it’s likely you’ll be sat on the floor! Our shirt dress is designed with a pure cotton lining, so it’s crafted for sitting cross-legged! And, because the print is so versatile, you can team it with a jacket and wear it to the office too.
It Was All Yellow
A popular colour for picnics up and down the country, yellow is a sure-fire way of adding a splash of excitement to your outdoor meal! The flower print puts you at one with nature, while the fun fit and flare shape is perfect for adding a retro twist! Add accessories to the dress with tan sandals and a weave bag.
Feeling fruity? Why not add a tantalizing citrus flavor to your outfit? Featuring a tropical lemon pattern on a classic vertical stripe base, the self-tie waist on this midi dress cinches your shape, while the modern collarless neckline is the perfect pairing for a pendant necklace. Oh, and you should get some matching plates for the ultimate twinning moment!
Nail The Nautical
The seaside meets day glamour when you choose this knot dress! In a figure-hugging shape, this bodycon number is different from the rest! The evenly-spaced horizontal stripes flatter your figure – more room for delicious strawberries! Plus, just look at that vintage bow!
Flowers For All
As you may know, we love to clash colours and create new prints! And, in-keeping with the theme, our skater dress with stripes and florals is no exception. But, it’s not just the print that’s picnic-appropriate, the pockets are handy too.
Finally, with a chic sweetheart neckline and a beautiful print, this summer dress is perfect for romantic strolls and light lunches. The expertly crafted cotton is comfy, and the colours are cool – so the only thing you’ll need to think about is which sandals to wear!
