Polka Dot 3/4 Sleeve Smock Dress
So, you’ve stocked up on everything from sausage rolls to champagne and orange juice, your Bluetooth speakers are fully charged, and the weather forecast is predicting sunshine all day (don’t forget your brolly though, we all know nothing is promised with British weather!). Ahh, yes, nothing symbolises the beginning of summer quite like that first picnic. However, just one thing is missing… what are you going to wear?
Picking out the perfect picnic attire is no easy feat: You want something that is loose enough to give a little extra wiggle room after all the crisps, something that won’t ride up too much, and also something that will keep you cool as you bask in midday sun. Yep, sounds tricky to cover all the bases, right?
Not to fear, after hours of careful research, we think we’ve finally found the secret formula to effortlessly acing that summer picnic style. But be warned, you might find that bees will be chasing you not just for your strawberries, but to get you to spill your oh-so-sweet style secrets!
Don’t forget to check our promos and discount codes to see if you can grab a bargain.
Stepping out in that first summer dress of the year is truly an unbeatable feeling. Whether you want to soak up as much sun as possible in a cute little mini dress, or you prefer the flowy feeling of a long maxi dress, we’ve got dresses for every taste.
We all know how it goes: You’re four mimosa’s in, you’re feeling confident, and you decide to attempt a cartwheel. These usually end with a clumsy sideways fall, knickers on show to the whole park. So this time round, why not opt for a playsuit? You might not be able to save yourself from the embarrassment of the fall, but at least nobody will see your underwear!
Some picnics are so much fun that they carry on well into the night, so always be prepared! Porting a light cardigan is perfect for picnic weather: You can simply wear it around your waist during the day, and then just pop it over your shoulders when you begin to feel the evening chill.
It’s time to prep your feet and give them some good old TLC, because summer is the perfect time to give your toes some fresh air! A basic pair of sandals or some strappy espadrilles will turn any ordinary outfit into a stylish summer statement. Or if that’s not your thing, even a pair of fresh, white trainers will go a long way in levelling-up your picnic fashion game!
Unless you enjoy squinting in the sun and lots of forehead sweat, then you’ll need some trusty accessories to get you through the summer days. Bucket hats are ideal for achieving the effortless, cool girl look, and headbands are great for keeping any sweaty hair at bay. Oh, and did we mention that cat-eye sunglasses are perfect for subtly eyeing up that cutie playing tennis nearby?
Is it just us, or does carrying around a little wicker basket make you feel like you stepped straight out of a fairytale? Whether your favourite mode of transportation for all of your yummy picnic goodies is a classic cool bag or a neat hamper basket, just make sure you have enough room for all of your favourite dips!
Not on the High Street
As carefree as many picnics look on the ‘gram, things aren’t always what they seem. Behind the scenes, there’s usually a bee incessantly buzzing around, sweat patches forming on underarms, and sunburned shoulders. While we can’t help too much with the bee scenario, we can help with the sweaty scenarios! Get some good sunscreen, deodorant, translucent face powder, and you’re good to go! Happy picnicking!
