With Memorial Day giving our US fans a well-deserved break and the Queen’s Jubilee weekend providing our British Emma Wallace women with a chance to put their ‘out of office’ on, we’re all about celebrating those long weekends in style.
Whether you’re heading to a garden party, enjoying a BBQ on the beach or going ‘out out’ to dance the night away, we’re here to give you the inspiration to master the holidays and ensure you top the best-dressed list at any soiree.
Read on as we reveal our top picks…
Garden Party Greatness
Cute cocktails, delicious finger foods all set within a beautiful floral garden? We love a chic garden party filled with friends and family. Add union jack bunting for the Jubilee to deliver a regal take or opt for red white and blue balloons to make Memorial Day memorable. When it comes to your outfit, we’re all about our Chris Dress. With its high draped neckline, slim fit waist, and fluted skirt it’s flirty without baring all. Featuring our butterfly inspired Alar print, it’s the perfect pick to help you spread your style wings at any garden get-together. Wear with neutral platform shoes and a pair of oversized sunnies to complete the look.
We love a cook along on the beach – charcoal scents filling the air and pitchers of cocktails being shared. Relaxed, fun and full of energy, it’s the perfect way to soak up the sun over a long weekend. When it comes to a more casual look, our Aster Dress is a must-have for your wardrobe. Made in silk, this maxi dress looks fab with a pair of cute brightly coloured sliders. With no fastenings, the slip-on style is easy for throwing over your bikini, whilst the loose fit will keep you cool as the temperatures soar.
Heading to a pretty park for a picnic? We couldn’t think of a better way to enjoy some of the long weekend. With the sun shining bright and the flowers in full bloom, you need an outfit that you can lounge in whilst looking luxe. We’d opt for our beautiful butterfly covered Penta Trousers paired with our matching Alyssa Tee. This cute co-ord is loose, soft and comfy. Perfect for sitting on the grass for hours. Wear with a pair of white sneakers and pull your hair into a messy high ponytail. Add on cute white sunnies and you’re ready for that park appearance.
Belle Of The Ball
Dialling up the glamour and heading to a black tie event to celebrate the long weekend? Then our Carina Gown will have you feeling like a Queen (perfect for the Jubilee!). Featuring a deep v neckline, elegant fishtail silhouette and our signature cut out details to the shoulder, this is a dress destined to wow. In a soft pink shade, it’s a great colour for the season. Wear with sky-high nude sandals and pop on a pair of statement earrings (we love the Astrid & Miyu rope & pearl pendant hoops) to finish.
Whether it’s a bottomless drinks vibe or a more casual affair, we love to mark a long weekend with a brunch. After all, nothing signifies a day off like an indulgent morning. When it comes to nailing that brunch look nothing beats our Reta Jumpsuit. The cropped wide leg shape with open back detail is effortlessly chic and super versatile. Wear with chunky black sliders and oversized black sunglasses for a chilled occasion or dial up the glam with stiletto black sandals and a red lip for when the girls get together for eggs benedict and bottomless mimosas.
