Summer like it’s the Seventies

So they say that history repeats itself, and when it comes to the archives of the fashion world, the same applies. The massive 90s trend has apparently come and gone, and now all the high-street fashion retailers such as Zara, Topshop and New Look appear to be overrun with copious amounts of suede, denim and those ever-so-boho neutral earthy tones.

But picnicking in the wrong attire can be uncomfortable, and inhibit you from devouring all the food, so here’s some advice for the best fashionable and practical summer ensembles... No doubt you will have seen high street shops styling outfits made up of two key pieces: the top is usually an oversized crop, shirt or blazer. This is paired with matching cigarette trousers for the sports luxe look, or midi skirts, miniskirts, shorts and maxis for a more feminine feel. These two piece outfits are perfect for picnicking, as the “matchy matchy” style makes it easier for you when getting ready - you don’t need to scour your war...
