Dressing for the British Summer

Thursday, May 28 2015

We know that picking the perfect outfit can be difficult at the best of times, especially when factoring in the temperamental British summer weather. The ever-changing climate can make outfit planning tricky and so it's always good to have a few wardrobe essentials handy. With clever layering and a bit of planning, it's easy to stay one step ahead.

Complement your Alie Street dress with a colourful blazer for a smart daytime look, a lightweight coat for stylish events, or a beautiful pashmina for instant evening cover-up. We've compiled our best layered outfits to take the stress out of dressing this British summer.

Nothing beats a classic blazer (such as this Short Crepe Jacket from Zara) for covering up during the day. Shorter sharper styles in lightweight colourful fabrics are easy to wear and work brilliantly with our 1950s inspired Olivia day dress in Tropical Nights.

Dressing for the British summer

Whether you're heading to the polo or the races, team your dress with a lightweight full length coat (such as this textured throw-on coat from Top Shop) for a smart, royal-inspired look. Choose a coat in a contrasting light colour to keep your look summer appropriate.

A pashmina is an easy and lightweight solution to cover up for the evening. Opt for one in soft dusky tones to complement a neutral gown such as the Savannah, or alternatively blue or purple shades create the perfect 'evening' accent colour. (British made cashmere Stole by Brora)
