 What to Wear to a Spring Picnic Collage

Spring has sprung, here is what to wear this picnic season. 

You’ve packed the games, finger food and rose, you have a basket and blanket in tow, now all you need is that perfect picnic outfit. Here are our top tips for styling your next picnic look. 


1. You Can’t Go Wrong With Prints

We adore the wearability and fun factor of prints for a picnic event. Florals for spring? Groundbreaking we know. But a floral print is classic for a reason. Floral prints are easy to wear, perfect for lifting the mood and ideal for hiding the little mishaps inevitable at any good picnic. The Alfresco Green one of our absolute favorites, providing an edgier take on your classic floral. If you are not a floral girl, we have got you covered too, try our graphic Waverly print for a more sophisticated statement.

2. Choose Wrinkle Free Fabrics And Soft Fibers

Picnics are all about catching up with friends in comfort. Look for natural fibres, crinkle free fabrics and lots volume to ensure your unmentionables remain unmentioned. We love the full and flowy Francine in Waverly, or if you are looking for a more elevated picnic look, try our timeless embroidered Raylene, made from 100% cotton.

3. Focus On Fit

There is nothing worse than trying to sit cross legged in a denim skirt or constantly adjusting an ill fitting dress. Our favourite picnic-ready style is whatever makes YOU feel amazing. A top and paint combo such as the Maeve Top in Alfresco Green and Rolled Cuff Pant in Black is both polished and practical.

 4. Have Fun With Accessories

 Picnics are intimate affairs, the perfect place to have fun and play with fashion. Elevating your look is easy, with a few choice accessories you can take your picnic-style to the next level. We suggest statement earrings such as Fan Drop Earrings in White, to bring attention to your eyes and smile.

 5. Comfort Is King

The beauty of hosting a picnic is comfort is king. A crisp new pair of white sneakers are perfect for an afternoon game of finska or keeping up with the kids and the addition of a denim jacket will allow the celebration to continue well after sundown. Finish your look with a glass of vino, you can’t go wrong!
