18 Summer Outfits We Love for All Kinds of Weather

I don't know about you, but all I can think about is summer. If you too are dreaming of afternoons in beer gardens and summer parties with friends, then you might already be searching for the perfect summer outfits for our return to socialising with fewer restrictions. I bought a pair of sandals and a summer cotton dress within hours of the proposal for a freer summer and have been looking for outfit ideas ever since.

Sometimes, summer outfits need to be straightforward and simple to assemble, with just the flourish of a key accessory or subtle injection of a new styling move, and sometimes—because the UK's climate is so unpredictable—the layering and construction will be more demanding. We've supplied the more advanced levels, of course. Remember if the sandals don't work due to rain, plenty of the below outfits work with boots.

So without further ado, let us introduce you to the summer outfit ideas we're dreaming of for 2021, provided by some standout looks and supported by the shopping pieces you need to see.
