With Summer approaching, everyone is shedding their layers of clothing and venturing outside. While we’re currently enjoying the Summer nights where we sit outside in the pub garden and enjoy a cold pint (or two), it won’t be long before the slightly more formal events begin, so let’s talk garden parties. The general consensus for garden party attire is smart casual, so leave your booty shorts at home and dust off your summer dresses. While you’re sipping your prosecco or Pimms, you want to look chic and sophisticated, so pick clothes and accessories that will perfectly fit the occasion. Find out how to accessorise for a garden party and get Summer wardrobe ready with jewellery from JewelStreet.
Garden parties are a mix of colours and patterns, so jewellery and accessories are important to tie your look together, so you’re not too OTT. If you’re wearing a vibrant and colourful outfit, accessorise with neutral and natural jewellery. Garden parties are smart casual events, so steer away from blingy accessories and go for more subtle jewellery with earthy tones. Pick jewellery with wooden textures, pastel colours, woodland motifs and delicate accents for a natural vibe. Pair a colourful dress with a simple necklace, pair of hoop earrings and a dainty bracelet. Make sure your accessories are the same colour for a coordinated and understated look.
Lace is the perfect accent for a garden party. It’s feminine look and dainty pattern is classic and pretty and will make a lasting impression on other party guests. Lace dresses are usually pastel or neutral colours, like white or pink. Keep the look coordinated and fun with similar lace accessories. Pick a gold lace bangle and matching earrings to complete your lace ensemble. The similar textures and muted colours create a feminine and patterned look without being too over the top. Alternatively, pair your lace dress with more vibrant and colourful accessories. Lace is a fabulous style, which can blend into the background to make way for bolder accessories. Wear a simple lace dress and pair it with vibrant jewellery to add a pop of colour.
Florals for Spring/Summer may not be groundbreaking but they are a staple style for the warmer months. For some serious flower power, pair a patterned floral dress with equally patterned and floral accessories. You can never have enough florals for the Spring/Summer time so incorporate flower accents into every aspect of your garden party ensemble. Keep it subtle with petal earrings or be bold with a giant blossoming flower ring. Florals allow you to explore colour, so keep it muted with pastel tones or be bright with bold neon colours.
Gold is the perfect colour for Spring/Summer. The warm tones give colour to any outfit and look gorgeous in the Summer sun and alongside Mother Nature. No matter your outfit, gold accessories give a pop of colour and a classic look to your ensemble. If you’re looking for even more colour, choose rose gold. Rose gold has become a fast favourite for many jewellery lovers, with its blush pink tone and stunning shine. For more feminine flair, wear rose gold jewellery with a neutral or pastel coloured outfit and make the accessories the star of the show.
