Well hello strawberries and fizz. Hello events. Hello event dressing. Yes, the summer scene is kicking off and we've never been so excited to socialise after two years of not being able to gather in significant numbers. However, event dressing can be a real style challenge and even more so after too many zoom calls and dressing to be seen from the waist up only. So whether you're heading to Glyndebourne, Wimbledon, Ascot, a Royal Garden Party, a graduation, a wedding...or simply mixing with the neighbours at your street's Jubilee party... you'll need the right dress. Diaries are filling up with events that require some closet consideration. Here's some wardrobe wonders that will ensure style success whatever you've got pencilled in this summer.
The Elegant Maxi Dress
Where it will take you: Light and ethereal, this Scotch & Soda Voile Maxi Dress, £220, will take you to numerous events but we dream of wafting in it to the sounds of opera at Glyndebourne or wearing it with a lovely cream blazer to be best dressed at a summer wedding.
The Statement Floral Dress
The Flirty Floral Dress
The All-white Maxi Dress
Where it will take you: If there was ever a perfect dress to wear to a summer's day sitting in the crowd of Wimbledon's Centre Court - it is this tennis whites Dilli Grey Dress, £150. It's also super-cool for a garden gather with friends be it for a BBQ or a little Queen's Jubilee celebration.
