It’s been a long old winter and as the UK comes out of its latest lockdown, restrictions are gradually easing. One of the biggest changes is being able to meet up with 5 friends outdoors (in your garden or the local park) from 29 March 2021.

So while we wait patiently for pub gardens to open (12 April), the park is clearly the place to be right now.

British weather is never predictable, but we’re thinking positively, which means it’s all about the summery dresses, shorts, skirts and sandals! Take a peek below for some inspo!

Don’t forget to check our promos and discount codes to see if you nab a bargain.

Tops

Whether it’s a blouse, a cami or a basic tee you’re after, shop from our picks below to make heads turn as soon as you enter that park. Animal print has never gone away, and floral wrap tees are back with a vengeance this summer! Team yours with blue skinny jeans and white trainers for a casual, cool vibe.

Skirts and shorts

If it’s warm enough to bare your legs, just go for it! Cycling shorts teamed with an oversized tee will always look the part. But if you’re a denim short kinda girl, pair yours with a blouse or a basic tee and sandals.

Dresses

Smock dresses are great for summery days – they keep you nice and airy when it’s hot and can be styled with biker boots or bright white trainers. Denim dresses are in this summer too though, so if you fancy donning more of a utilitarian look, step right up because we’ve got just the dress for you.

Trousers

White jeans can be risky in a park (just make sure it’s dry) but they look great! Wear yours with a floral tee or an animal print blouse for serious style points. But if you want something different, opt for a pair of utility trousers in khaki – the opportunities are endless.

Shoes

Biker boots, platform trainers and open-toe sandals are the winners again this summer. Make your choice with the weather in mind – biker boots in 30-degree heat just isn’t the one. But they look great with a floral tea dress or even a white smock dress. More of a trainer girl? The world is your oyster as you can pair them with just about anything! And if it’s warm enough for sandals… Birkenstocks are the ticket.

Accessories

A year ago, we never would have thought a face mask would be a park outfit essential, but you sure don’t want to forget it – just in case you need to run into a shop for extra supplies! Chunky hoops are a given, aren’t they? And if you hadn’t guessed it already, we love a bit of animal print. So to add a dash to your outfit, opt for this leopard shoulder bag!
