Summer is just around the corner, which means the season of garden parties is within reaching distance. Sunny afternoons, ice-cold champagne, splendid tablescapes and al fresco dining – what could possibly be better?
When it comes to garden party style, many of us tend to favour typically feminine design tropes – think frills, breathable silks and ever-flattering bias cuts. This year, we've decided to take our cues from some of the celebs who have been nailing summer dressing recently.
Hello! Fashion shares our supermodel-inspired garden party outfit ideas:
Romantic ruffle dress and strappy sandals
Celeb-adored FANCì Club added another famous face to its roster of fans in the form of ex-Victoria Secret model Elsa Hosk. The 34-year-old wore a fuchsia sheer asymmetric dress paired with statement floral strappy sandals, looking the picture of free-flowing beauty.
Cowl neck slip dress and thong sandals
Karlie Kloss knows exactly what's up when it comes to effortless summer chic. The 30-year-old model donned a shimmery satin cowl neck slip dress by Jonathan Simkhai during a stint in Paris for Couture Fashion Week. She styled her thigh-split gown with jewels by David Yurman and black thong-style sandals – we think this outfit would make excellent outfit for an outdoor soirée.
Tie dye silk dress and mules
Emily Ratajkowski looked radiant attending the Marc Jacobs Fall 2022 Ready-to-Wear show at the New York Public Library. The 31-year-old model opted for a blue and green tie-dye slip dress featuring an abstract pattern with rich blues, greens and a hint of indigo – colours very reminiscent of Van Gogh's The Starry Night.
Emily's exact dress was part of a special collaboration between Marc Jacobs and New York-based painter Loren Erdrich. The printed midi dress is always a great choice for summer, and yet paired with the flattering line of a round-toe mule elevated the ensemble and turned it into our official garden party uniform.
