Beer garden outfits

by Aimee Jakes |

If you're on the quest for a beer garden outfit that will ensure your re-entry look is nothing short of amazing β€” one, join the club; and two, buckle in! We have rounded all the best bits from the high-street, from babein' dresses to zebra-print flares and beyond.

Hot girl summer? We're so ready, even if the weather forecast isn't quite matching our mood just yet.

If the thought of 'normal clothes' makes you break out in a cold sweat (understandable) we have laid out some simple guidelines to help you find a 'gram-worthy outfit, but it's important to remember THERE ARE NO RULES. Honestly, anything goes sartorial-wise this summer.

After clashing prints? Flares? A sequinned handbags? Platform flip flops? We'll take the lot.

Things to consider:

1) You need to look undeniably babein'. Now is your time to shine after a quite-frankly miserable winter. You need your outfit to be loud, proud and 'gram-worthy, hun.

2) You need to feel (somewhat) comfortable. Even though we are sick of loungewear (shudders), we still want to feel like we can drink a few glasses of fizz without being too worried about bloating/sequins digging into your armpit. Instead, 'smasual' is probably wise.

3) You need to be warm. Have you seen the weather app recently? Clouds? Snow? Minus two degrees? Not okay, but we move. Simply add an oversized blazer or leather jacket to your outfit, or shop from the 'best sleeved dresses' or 'fun trousers' below.

1) A dress with sleeves

An easy all-in-one outfit but with sleeves, as y'know, it is still only April and we really don't fancy developing hypothermia. Whether you dress it up with statement heels, play it safe with summer sandals or pair with your eryday white trainers, you can't go wrong with a sleeved frock this spring. Check out our favourites below...

2) Fun trousers

This year we're swapping our safe skinnies for zebra-print flares, cargo trousers and brown wide-leg jeans. We blame the fact that we're far too used to oversized joggers to ever go back to the skin-tight jeans of our past.

The spring trends that Cher Horowitz would like totally wear today

Trends to look out for this summer:

Victorian necklines: Thanks to the resurgence of Little Women and Downton Abbey, high necklines and vintage details are having a moment. Perfect for when you're pretending to be wholesome.

Racer checks: Be a formula one hun and sport one of the coolest prints around RN. Stick to a monochrome vibe for easy-dressing, or go full-thwack neon if you're feeling adventurous.

Chunky shoes: Toughen up your spring frock with a sturdy shoe. Whether you're a chunky trainers gal or are never not in boots - think Primary School vibes for a bang-on-trend look.
