What to Wear at a Garden Party?
Whether it's to celebrate a birthday, pre-football drinks with friends, or just to have a knees up, garden parties are the new going out. As soon as we see a bit of sunshine its straight off out to our local’s beer garden for fun, laughter, and drinks with friends, but sometimes as soon as we start getting into the swing of things you hear that dreaded bell for ‘last orders’, that’s why people are now starting to take more pride into their garden décor, so they are always party ready.
The biggest question about a garden party is ‘what to wear’? Do you go with jeans and a nice top, or do you opt for a floral summer dress? To be quite honest with you, unless it’s a themed shindig, anything goes. You can accessorise a bright lounge suit, or if the weather is hot hot hot, then you can go for shorts and wedge combo. Well, panic no more, we have picked our fave garden party fits for you. From floral maxi dresses to playful midis. Comfy jumpsuits to a classic jeans with a nice top – we have got you covered, whatever the weather (literally).
First up is one of our bestselling floor length, flower power maxi dresses. This stunner of a summer style is here for any occasion. Its light long sleeves mean its fit for any weather, while its classic V-neck is perfect for any occasion. This dress gives me full throttle bohemian vibes, ankle boots, cross over body satchel and some long necklaces. The best thing about this dress is not only does it come in 3 amazing colours (blush, navy and red), but it also will serve you for casual or formal occasions.
Next up on the top picks is this floral print playsuit from Madam Rage, we are obsessed with this bright and bold yellow romper. This is a go to pick for those outdoor gatherings when it is sizzling hot. The great thing about this playsuit is that it can be worn with heels and wedges for a proper glam look, or team with trainers and a chunky cardigan for a more casual feel. Wearing this playsuit will give you the ultimate summer feel. Although this is a great choice for BBQs, this is also a must when packing for holidays. With its faux wrap style v-neckline and waist belt, this all in one is a must for summer events.
Now, if you are a girl like me who always resorts to a safe jean and nice top, then this is for you. A new addition from Zibi London, this flawless zefir textured floral blue blouse is just everything. Perfect for those summer back yard gatherings for birthdays or just a casual BBQ. The best thing about this top is that it is a go to piece for date nights, cocktails with friends, dinners, and lunches, all you need to do is team with your favourite jeans and you are good to go.

This loose fitted styled top and its fabulous colours is easy to dress up with heels or go for a more casual feel with some sparkly sandals.
This next pick is hands-down going to be a summer winner in my eyes. This sensational sizzling hot blue ditsy floral high low dress from Mela London is the Summer dress you have been wanting forever. With its classically sublime bardot off the shoulder style and its all over bold floral print, this dress is a winning pick for the season. Although it is already decorated with a well-rounded floral design, it is also has a ruffled detail on the neckline, bringing a little romance to this already captivating style. Less is more with this style, teamed with heels for a casual dinner or sandals for a daytime look. A perfect pick for picnics, lunch dates, meeting up for coffees and of course a champion winner for garden parties.
Summer is all about bright colours, bold prints, light fabrics and being totally comfortable, and Zibi London have designed the perfect summer dress which has all the above attributes.

This short white dress is decorated with a collection of multicoloured flowers, taking floral prints to a whole new level. This is probably one of the dresses that when you look at it you automatically think beer garden, garden party, summer!
