If you want more inspo for day drinks this summer (whether indoor or outdoor) then check out these perfect for the pub and garden party edits.


What To Wear To The Beer Garden?

For an all-in-one solution

First up in the pub garden outfit hall of fame is this comfy polka jumpsuit. With its Bardot neckline, it looks and feels just the right amount of dressy, but you can easily style it down with white trainers if you prefer. Alternatively, add a (grass-friendly) blocky heel and a cropped biker jacket before you head out to meet the girls.

For one-and-done florals

While we’re on the jumpsuit theme, this flowery one-piece is the perfect alternative to a floral summer dress. It has a comfy wide-leg fit and a cinched tie-knot waist, and gives you some leg coverage if the weather turns chilly. Plus, it has pockets, and who doesn’t love a pocket? Pair it with strappy sandals or trainers for your next drinks outing.

For legs out weather

Sun out for the day? A cute mini is in order, and this green printed dress is summer pub outfit perfection. Printed with a geometric pattern on a green base, it’s made from a light fabric and has a detachable self-tie belt to cinch the loose fit. Style with woven brown sandals or trainers for casual drinks, or if you’re going out-out after the beer garden, pair with some neutral heels.

For when it’s chilly 

Wondering what to wear to the beer garden when it’s cold? This beautiful long sleeve midi shirt dress in green will keep you goosebump-free, and I love the tie-waist detail for the perfect cinch. Plus, if you’re planning an after-work beer garden sesh, you can wear this straight from your desk to drinks.

The nice top to your everyday jeans. You’ll wear this polka dot top everywhere, not just the beer garden. Pair with your favourite denim (or some leather look leggings if you prefer) for an easy-to-wear, casual-cool combo.

For a summer-in-the-city vibe

Less cutesy than a floral tea dress but still giving that relaxed summery feel, this printed maxi skirt pairs well with a strappy cami top or ribbed vest top. Add some sandals, a denim jacket and a cute wicker bag to complete the look. Disclaimer: not just for the city, you’ll wear this one everywhere, from beach holidays to weekend breaks.

For drinks with the family

Having a few rounds with your folks? This animal print top in green says ‘Sunday lunch in the pub garden’ to me. With a high neck fit and floaty sleeves, it’s gorgeous with blue or white denim, and gives you long sleeves if the weather’s on the changeable side.
