A Guide to the Perfect Summer Cover up

The Beach Stroll

Nothing says British summertime quite like a day by the seaside with your family, complete with bucket, spade and a sand filled picnic. But we all know the British coastline in no Bondi beach and it can get pretty chilly. For a cute and casual cover-up a cape is the perfect, easy to throw on option. Paired with denim shorts over the top of your bikini, a cape will keep you warm whilst still looking casual.

The Festival Essential

With the festival season fast approaching is time to consider the important things… ‘What am I going to wear?!’ We all know the importance of looking super stylist when attending summer festivals but there is always one major issue to contend with, the rain. To make sure you maintain your effortlessly stylist look whilst also staying warm and dry a statement mac is a must. There are loads of bright colours to choose from but this really cute lace print mac will make sure you stand out from the crowd. Pair it with some bright wellies and designer shades and you’ll have the perfect festival look.

The Pub Lunch

Pub lunches are a great opportunity to get together with friends and just enjoy the sunshine. Whilst pub lunches are usually a casual affair it’s always nice to make it look like you’ve put in effort and thought about your outfit. A dark, floral printed cape paired with white skinny jeans and wedges is the perfect outfit combination. If you’re just meeting up with friends softly waved hair will keep the look casual but if you’re out for a romantic date why not try a braided up-do to impress your date.

The British BBQ

Any time the sun makes an appearance from behind the clouds we rush to the shops and stock up on BBQ goodies. BBQs are usually a very casual affair with friends so you’ll want to wear something nice and casual. A kimono is the great way to add some colour and pattern to a plain outfit. Wear it over a plain black dress or with a basic white tee and jeans for a cool, casual vibe. The great thing about kimonos are they suit any size frame (and are great for disguising post BBQ food babies).
