Spring is here and it will be summer before we say BOOM! Summer is all about barbecues, picnics and loads of outdoor events/activities. It is usually a busy time of the year and I really can’t wait for all the fun the season brings.
When it comes to dressing for outdoor events, we have to pay special attention to our clothing and accessories to ensure they are fit for purpose. Fashion for the outdoors is all about wearing the right outfit for the event. Being outdoors for an entire event can be hard, depending on the weather and whether you like being outdoors or not.
Here are some fashion and style tips you may find handy –
If in doubt wear jeans
Jeans are great for outdoor events. You can easily catch me wearing a pair of jeans. They are practical, stylish and very functional. Jeans are great for picnics, summer barbecues and parties, You can hide grass and food stains easily on a pair of jeans. They are also very easy to glam up. You can style it with a glittery or over the top blouse for a more stylish look.
Layer like a pro
If you are going to be spending hours outdoors, it is best to dress up in layers, so you can put on and take off as needed. Styling your outfit with a light jacket or wrap cardigan on a summery day would work great. You could also go for a look with a camisole underneath. This helps for when it starts off being very warm in the day but becomes chilly in the evening.
Go for comfy clothing
When it comes to outdoor events, I like to think of comfort after layering. Comfort is very important if I plan to have a great time. I like to wear comfy pieces like light jeans, cotton tops, dark linen trousers, wide knee-length skirts and the likes.
Remember the accessories
For a summer day, I am always with a hat and a pair of sunglasses to protect my eyes. I can’t imagine attending an outdoor event without them.
Go elegant to the Races
If going to the races is on your agenda this summer, make sure you have your elegant outfit ready. It is all about the glamourous dress paired with stunning heels, and hat/fascinator. Ensure you dress to look the part.
Style your footwear smart
Ensure you wear the right sort of shoes and make sure you can work in them. I remember wearing a lovely strappy sandals to a summer wedding a few years ago. It was done outdoors and I struggled to walk on the grass. My heels kept digging into the muddy grass. It was a horrible experience. You don’t want to find that you are struggling to walk in your shoes on the day. A way to get around this is to wear comfy shoes for the location of the event. A more structured heel or wedge would have been ideal for me. Also, it makes sense to have a pair of flats in your bag for when your feet need it.
Looking fabulous – love those outfits. Great style advice again – thank you from a busy mum who needs all the help she can get!!
