There’s really no need to emphasize how lovely British summer is. We all love the long, sunny days graced by the occasional breeze. To celebrate the love for British summer, there are plenty of summer events around. From a garden party, to a weekend barbecue, to outdoor weddings, tennis matches and horse races… … etc.
There are different dress codes for going to different events. I’ve featured 5 dresses here(many are on sale now!), that would cover almost all different events on your diary this summer. I’ve opted for midi to maxi skirt lengths, both to hide my voluminous thighs and also they would be appropriate for most dress codes.
The first dress is a sorbet colour block, flowy piece. There’s no restrain whatsoever on the body, ideal for wearing for the whole day, eating, drinking and dancing. I wore this to the Royal Ascot royal enclosure. The hat designer kindly personalised my hat to the dress in the end. The whole outfit looked great together. And most importantly, I felt great without having to suck my stomach in all the time.
The second dress would be perfect for going to the Wimbledon. The white, the cotton material and the airy design would keep you cool for the whole day. And white, which would remind me of retro tennis dresses, is always tennis appropriate. Just be careful not to let strawberry juices splash onto it though.
The third dress is one I’ve own for a while now. It’s also a great summer piece that doesn’t really go out of style. The puffy sleeves are massively on trend this summer, and the subtle daisy print can almost never date. I can’t think of an event that it’s not suitable for. Garden parties, weddings… … it’s the ultimate fail safe choice.
This fourth dress is a great steal(even more so now that it’s on sale). The cutting and ruffles fall all at the right place to accentuate your figure. And the polka dot trend is huge, but can be a little scary. This dress gives a nod to the polka dots trend while keeping things classic and modest.
Last but not least, this is the new LBD you need this year. It’s so much fun and different, whilst giving you the body shape you’ve only dreamed of before. Paired with the right accessories, it’ll look a million dollars. But in fact, the real price is one you’ll sure to smile at.
