Summer is officially here now that we’ve just had the summer solstice (the longest day of the year). And what better way to celebrate than by throwing a party? Now that it stays light for longer, an early evening party in the fresh air can last for longer.
Light, summer parties have a different atmosphere than parties in a dark space – I just think we all feel more free. And everyone’s in a good mood when it’s warm and hot rather than when it’s cold and you have to wear a million layers. When dressing for summer parties, the goal is to stay cool and look cool and the stars got this right at their summer solstice party at London’s five star EDITION hotel. Let’s have a look at their outfits for some inspiration:
Alexa has always been on-trend with the latest fashions and I think she looked absolutely stunning in a tea dress. It’s floaty and it’s feminine and the lace detail on the neckline made the outfit look a lot more eye-catching. With this dress, you wouldn’t need a coat and would be comfortable whatever the weather.
Florals are perfect for summer and model Laura Bailey looks fabulous in her floral maxi dress. Maxi dresses are super flattering and so are prints because the colours attract the eye to the length of the dress to make the wearer appear slimmer. You can never have enough florals in your life – or wardrobe!
Sequins are so much fun in the sun as they reflect the light and make sure everyone sits up and pays attention. If you want to stand out for the right reasons at a summer party then a sequin dress will help you do that. Sienna accessorises with a lovely golden tan and black sandals and looks a million dollars.
When dressing for summer, fabric is important. Mollie’s satin cami and loose long coat would ensure she kept her cool whatever happened during the night. That smile expresses the fact that she both looks and feels fantastic.
