Whether you're heading to an alfresco party with friends, or a more relaxed BBQ with the family, we’ve selected a number of stylish pieces that will see you through the summer season.
Dressing for a summer party doesn’t necessarily mean you need to abandon your signature style for a stereotypical floaty party dress that you’ll no doubt be fussing with all day. Instead, find pieces that make you feel comfortable, but still look chic – whether it's a boho-style maxi dress from See By Chloé, a pair of tailored trousers from Victoria Beckham (that look effortlessly cool when paired with statement Common Projects trainers), a stylish Whistles jumpsuit, or a pleated midi skirt with a plain white tee.
If you’ll be mingling outside all day, avoid ruining your favourite pair of stilettos in the grass by opting for a pair of espadrille wedges or a chunky heeled sandal – both options below from Kurt Geiger are super versatile and won’t kill your feet. And of course, if your party is on home turf then you're subject to our notoriously unreliable British weather, so be sure to bring along a lightweight denim or cool military-style jacket, like this one from Rag & Bone, to reach for should you need it.
