Summer is a season of long hot evenings, warm lazy days and cool summer parties. When the weather turns out nice, it seems that everyone decides they want to have a celebration. And why not? We all work hard throughout the year and deserve a party or two. Besides, we get so little good weather in the UK that we should definitely make the most of it when it arrives!
Summer is also wedding season. Across the country, thousands of people will be getting married every weekend. You’ll barely be able to pass a church, on any given Saturday, without there being a wedding.
With this combination, it’s pretty likely that you’re going to get invited to at least one or two big events. All of which means that you’ll need to have your outfits planned and prepared, well in advance. This summer it’s all about colours – big, bold and bright. Patterns are also on trend, with animal skin being a particularly hot look.
Right outfit for the right occasion
How you dress will depend on the nature of your party. If it’s a BBQ with friends, anything from a maxi dress to jeans and a T-shirt will work well. The summer should be casual and comfortable. But if it’s a summer ball or a wedding, you’re going to need something a little bit more formal. Look into getting a couple of occasion dresses for those special days. You don’t want to be caught wearing the same dress on two occasions, and it’s nice to treat yourself to more than one option.
Accessories are key
Summer is also the season to experiment with accessories. Hats, sunglasses and bags will all add colour and flair to what you’re wearing. The right accessories will transform a casual dress into a formal one, giving you two outfits for the price of one.
With the weather forecasters telling us that this summer is going to be a good one, it’s a great excuse to enjoy yourself and make the most of summer parties. So, start doing your homework now, and by the time party season comes around, you’ll definitely be dressed to impress.
