One of the things we’re certainly grateful for is that al fresco dining is back on the menu. After spending what seems like an eternity at home, we’re now free to go out and enjoy a delicious meal we didn’t have to cook for ourselves. And if the Deliveroo driver has been showing up to your doorstep on a regular basis, then it’s safe to say it’s nice to eat off fancy plates rather than a takeaway tray for a change.

However, all our wonderful plans and table bookings solely rely on the weather forecast, and British summer means one minute it could be sunny, the next it could be cloudy with a chance of showers. Whether you’re heading to your local Italian or a cute café, outfit planning requires a little extra effort when dealing with the elements. Quite frankly, the last thing you want is to freeze wearing only a T-shirt and be colder than your dessert. Which is why having a layering option handy is key in avoiding any outfit dilemmas.

Need a little inspo on what to wear? We’ve put together three looks that will keep you not only warm but also stylish during your next outdoor meal. And with these restaurant outfit ideas, you’ll definitely have more than just food pics on your camera roll…

1. Chic in Soft Shades

If you’re looking for a warm but stylish outfit, then this soft shade ensemble is the one for you. Trending, effortless and most importantly cool, a shacket is the perfect cover-up for when the temperature drops during chilly evenings. Wearing a buttoned up, sleeveless cardigan like a vest is great for when it’s too warm for additional layers.

Adding cargo trousers in a simple stone hue complements the rest of the looks soft colour palette. Because we finally have the perfect excuse to dress up again, give your style a touch of glam with a pair of heels and a pouch bag. Time to serve up some serious style…

2. Dressy in Florals

For those sunny spring days that don’t feel quite like summer yet, opt for this warm dressy outfit. Florals always have a way of lifting anyone’s mood (and wardrobe) and this pretty midi dress will make you say ‘I look amazing’. Wearing a cute belt around the waist takes the style to another level.

If you’re thinking about layering with a nice knit, you won’t be disappointed when you reach for a cosy chunky cardigan. When you’re out and about, comfy footwear is essential. Easy white trainers work well with just about anything and allow you to create endless outfit opportunities. Something to carry your essentials with? Don’t forget a compact yet chic cross-body bag.

3. Cool in Leather-Look

The future looks nothing but stylish with this Matrix-inspired faux black leather shacket. It’s the perfect cover-up you’ll want to wear with every single restaurant outfit. From bottomless brunches to romantic date nights, straight-leg jeans in dark-wash denim will make you feel ready for any plan.

For a little nod to the 90s, opt for statement style in a marble print bodysuit and chunky chain necklace. And if you want to take those throwback vibes to the next level, a pair of black chunky lace-up shoes will give your look a cool grunge touch. Get ready for all the selfies and compliments…
