Summer Fashion Picnic Edit

After making it through lockdown last year, many of us are gearing up for a summer of (safe) socialising and spending as much time outside our four walls as possible.

With COVID restrictions meaning alfresco socialising is the new packed bar, how will our fashion change to match this brave new world? 

Welcome to the summer of the picnic where long maxi dresses, broad straw hats, and feminine florals will be on display. From the cottagecore trend that swept the internet earlier this year to gingham print being everywhere, expect to see packed parks to become the place to be seen.

To help get you picnic ready, we’ve selected a few of our favourite summer pieces that would help cement your status as the most stylish picnic-goer in the city.

The Ariel Dress 

Combine the picnic trend with the 2020 tie-dye trend in this stunning Rat & Boa piece. With dainty spaghetti straps and an ankle length cut, your picnic style will be elevated with ease.

The Picnic Perfect Skirt

In our opinion, this Orseund Iris ‘Romantique’ satin skirt was made for long lunches and afternoon sunsets. Featuring luxurious details and romantic colours, this skirt would make an Insta-worthy addition to your 2020 picnic attire.

The Date Dress

Day date ready, this Dion Lee dress is a great balance of cute and playful yet chic and stylish. Add sneakers to make it a more casual look. This piece works both ways as you could start in the park for an afternoon snack and prosecco then to a cocktail bar if things heat up (not just the weather, that is).

Pretty In Picnic Pink 

This blush pink shirt is cool enough to work in the city yet sweet enough to work at a picnic. Australian label, Aje, doesn’t have to just be for special occasions. Wear this one to a friend’s birthday picnic or on a date day.
