All I Can Think About Is Summer—So I've Found 13 Outfits I Love

I don't know about you, but the announcement this week about the road map for easing restrictions has meant that all I can think about is summer. If like me you're 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. I for one bought a pair of sandals and a summer cotton dress within hours of the proposal for a restriction-free summer come July.

Sometimes, summer outfits need to be straightforward and simple to assemble, with just a 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.)

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.
