Fashion for Outdoor Events

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.

Use Klarna Wisely

Klarna is one of the best things about shopping at ASOS. If you don’t know what it is, essentially it is a service used by ASOS and other brands to allow you to have 30 days to pay for the product your purchase. So, if you’re struggling towards the end of payday but really need that new dress, Klarna to the rescue.

You have to remember however to live within your means. If you know you’ve got a busy month next month, then maybe those £50 boots aren’t the best idea. It may feel like free clothes, but eventually you have to pay! If you’re struggling to understand how Klarna can benefit you, then you can get in touch with ASOS customer services team.

 

Sort by Size

There’s nothing worse than finding that perfect dress, and they’ve run out of your size. You can use the sort tool so that the results only show what is actually in stock in your size, to save yourself from the heartbreak.

The great thing with ASOS is they stock a whole variation of sizes, with a tall section and a plus-size section available if needed. It’s always a good idea to order a couple of different sizes to try on, as you can always send the wrong size back free of charge. You have a month to make sure you aren’t charged by Klarna.

Stick to your Budget

Not everyone can afford a new £100 pair of trainers, so make sure you know your budget before you go in. Maybe switch the range from low to high, starting with the cheaper items and working your way up. There really is some gold dust in the cheaper items, and it often brings up the sale items.

Don’t rule something out just because it’s cheaper than the budget you’ve set, you can either use it for an accessory or save it for next time!
