Picnic Dresses

With meetings of groups of six allowed outdoors in the UK from tomorrow and sunny weather forecast next week it’s time to throw your joggers in the wash and put a pretty frock on to re-enter society! We’re lucky that the pandemic has coincided with a trend for oversized dresses (got to look for a silver lining) as these are the perfect style for comfortably reclining on a picnic blanket with the added benefit of hiding the waistline so you can go wild on the sausage rolls. Other things to look for in a comfortable dress for al fresco meet ups are elasticated / drawstring waists, empire lines or smock style frocks for ease of wear al fresco. If the thought of what to wear outside your home is sending your head spinning here are my top picks for spring picnic dresses. 

Under £75


A pretty puff sleeve spring green dress from Marks & Spencer with elasticated waist panel for an easy fit.

I like the vibrant red/lilac stripe on this cotton poplin dress from Mango. The tie belt makes it easier to adjust the waistline for a comfy fit.

A cheerful hello cotton dress from Monsoon
