June 21 2021. As well as being the summer solstice and the longest day of the year, after the latest lockdown update, chances are that you’ve excitedly circled this date in your diary. For this is the day we’re hoping will mark the end of the majority of restrictions that have been in place for twelve months. Of course, this could quite easily change and is totally dependent on where you’re reading this from (I myself type this from Scotland where a different timescale is in place) but, if nothing else, it gives us hope and a date to work towards.
That doesn’t mean that you should write off the time between now and June as a no man’s land. With a plan for restrictions to ease gradually throughout spring, some of us may be eager to begin planning outings to suit these newfound—albeit largely outdoor-based—freedoms. Think walks out-with a five-mile radius, trips to the beach, dining alfresco, having picnics in the park, and so on.
Given that outdoor pursuits are set to be the highlight of our social calendars until further notice, we’ve decided to make the most of them, going as far as to start planning our corresponding outfits. With a little help from our fashion friends, scroll below to see the outdoor outfit ideas that’ll carry you through from March until May.
