Get the look: the bank holiday edition
The bonus bank holiday this summer is the perfect excuse to dress up – whatever’s on the agenda. From garden parties to boozy brunches, these bank holiday outfits will see you through the Jubilee weekend in style.
If you’ve been invited to a back garden soiree, then it’s only polite to make an effort. They’ve laid on the jam sandwiches and punch, so you should lay on the looks. A printed summer dress is a good starting point for any garden party (and pretty much every occasion all summer long). Wear yours with a chunky heel or wedges so there are no awkward heels-stuck-in-the-lawn situations.
Garden Party Outfits
Bank holiday street parties usually involve bunting, baked goods and some form of knees up, and we’ve got the outfits to match. Some floral print shorts and a sunshine yellow blouse is the sort of outfit that will take you from tea and scones with the neighbours at noon to the pub garden with friends at dusk.
A boozy brunch is the best way to kick off the bank holiday weekend (it’s a proven fact that you’ll avoid a hangover if you stop drinking at 2 pm). So channel the celebratory spirit of the day with bright pastels and pretty prints. A statement accessory like this 90’s inspired bag is going to lift your look.
GOING OUT OUT
If you’re channelling the young royals' energy for the jubilee weekend, then you might need a nightclub appropriate look. Whether you’re going to Raffles or your local pub, cut-off denims and a statement blouse is the perfect look for long summer nights.
