How to Stay Cool for Outdoor Events While Looking Chic

Summer in London is certainly heating up, but you don’t have to compromise your fashionable summer style. Whether you’re planning to take a Buckingham Palace tour, attend a garden party, or go to a beach wedding, you can stay cool and chic by adding light fabrics and flowy dresses to your summer wardrobe. Need some inspiration? Update your summer wardrobe with our top style tips.

Choose Flowy Dresses 

When it comes to summer dresses, the looser, the better. You don’t want the fabric to be hugging your body uncomfortably while you’re trying to explore a flower show or during a long outdoor summer wedding. Flowy does not have to mean bulky or boring though. Try looser dresses such as a kaftan or a flowy maxi dress which will help you to feel comfortable, while still accentuating your natural curves.  

Want to keep cool in the summer heat, while still looking your best? Try our kaftan dress made with Liberty™ Mrs. Gardener Crepe de Chine. It is a light and flowy dress, which is perfect for outdoor summer events. It comes in beautiful colours (such as jade or coral red) and cleverly ties under the bust to create a striking and fitted silhouette.

Opt for Lighter Fabrics 

We love dresses that accentuate our natural figures, but in summer, certain materials can sometimes leave us feeling warmer than expected. One way to highlight your best features - while facing the humidity - is to choose summer dresses (or summer tops) with lighter fabrics. 

We suggest choosing Liberty cotton and silks, which are lightweight options you can add to your summer wardrobe that won’t make you sweat during your outdoor event. Lace is also a fabulous choice, especially for formal events as it provides an elegant touch to any outfit. Try our Lace Confident dress in ivory which highlights your best features, while providing comfort in the summer heat. 

Add Formal Shirts or Capri Pants 

Want to take a break from dresses? Why not add formal capri pants to your wardrobe for those warmer summer days. They can be a little more comfortable than dresses for those events that require a lot of walking (such as an exhibition or garden party). Capri pants can be dressed up or down, depending on the occasion. We suggest pairing them with an elegant formal lace Confident top and statement heels to complete your look.

Wrap Dresses Are a Must

Your summer wardrobe isn’t complete without a wrap dress. Wrap dresses are quite popular with our Bombshells as they are flattering dresses for all figures. These beautiful dresses are designed to slim the waist and complement your natural curves. 

One of our favourite picks for summer is the Stretch Luxe Dress in Navy Jersey which is a gorgeous midi-length wrap dress with a fit that is both comfortable and flattering.  

Try Our Voile Dresses

Voile dresses are the ultimate fashion choice for summer events. Voile fabric is lightweight, soft to the touch, and drapes incredibly well on any body type. Our Voile dresses also come in a range of gorgeous styles to suit any outdoor occasion. 

Our Grace Dress in Navy Voile is inspired by the famous style of Grace Kelly. It is designed to flatter the bust while providing a light and comfortable fit. Pair it with a summer wrap or stylish fascinator to create an elegant look for a formal event.
