One of the biggest trends for spring and summer is picnic dressing. Even though socialising inside is a thing again, there’s no denying that after a year of being mostly cooped up indoors we’ll all be flocking to the park when the sun’s out to make the most of our new-found freedom.

What is picnic dressing you ask? We’re talking alfresco dresses that combine comfort with style, picture-perfect tops for all those selfies and barely-there hemlines to make the most of the sunshine. In short, it’s styles you can feel good in when you’re relaxing in the warm weather. Dreamy, right?

​​​​​​​A key part of the picnic trend are flower and check prints, and we’re delivering on those in a big way this year. So, whether you’re more of a gingham girl or florals are your favourite, we’ve got something for everyone. Take a look…
