summer outfits


We’re a generation that thrives off likes, comments and shares, and that’s even more true during the summer months when we finally get the chance to strike a pose poolside or against beautiful blue skies.

Summer trends come and go, so this is the perfect time to indulge in a little shopping trip. You’ll feel great with a fresh, up-to-date summer wardrobe, featuring all the essentials, and we’re going to help you create it. We’ve teamed up with Dimensions, corporate wear specialists, to bring you the ultimate style-guide, giving you the His & Hers edit of the best materials to beat the summer heat.

The guide will also give you top advice on how to dress impeccably for all kinds of escapades — from crazy festivals to lavish pool parties.

Best materials for summer

You might want to wear something totally out-there, but nothing looks better than comfort. To achieve all-round comfort in the hot weather, there are a few materials that you can wear that’ll keep you cool and still look fantastic.

To prevent perspiration patches which are extremely common in summer, there’s a new fabric technology that’s well worth looking into. The last thing you want when the sun is shining is to feel uncomfortable, or even having to go to the excessive lengths of changing your outfit. So, 37.5® Technology has been designed to combat this issue.

The fabric has the ability to acknowledge your body’s temperature; and direct it to warm up or cool down — depending on your needs. As well as this, the vapour stage allows it to move moisture out of the clothing before liquid sweat can form — perfect for those who like to keep active as well as sunbathe.

Cotton is also a great wardrobe staple, as it is very breathable! As cotton is so popular among fashion retailers, it is a very viable option for your summer wardrobe shop.

Rayon is a fabric featuring very thin threads, which allows it to breathe more than other fabrics, as well as being quite light to prevents it from sticking to the skin.

Picking the perfect outfit

Impromptu events are awfully common during the summer months, as you want to make the most out of the nicer weather, so this is when you’ll want to pull together an amazing look in a hurry! We’ve collated some of the most common events that occur when summer is here to give you advice on what to wear — from colours and styles — for both men and women:

Festival Fashion


If you want to dance with everybody watching, you need a striking outfit. Dressing for a festival all comes down to personal preference. However, there are some recommendations that we couldn’t resist sharing. Every festival goer should think about carrying a light backpack that can be easily carried around to hold your personal items, such as your smartphone, charger, purse and keys. You don’t want to be wearing a maxi dress at a festival, as this could potentially be trampled — opt for cotton shorts that are spacious enough to let you dance the day away, as well as a light vest top that allows your body to breathe. For your shoes, go for something flat like converse or buckled sandals so your feet do not get tired!


Stand out from the crowd with your festival outfit; make sure you have a mixture of colours and materials. You have the ability to be as creative as you’d like — but here is what we recommend to stand out from the crowd. Why not try a bright and bold silk shirt that has lots of patterns on it; something unusual that isn’t commonly worn every day. It’s not just the girls who can have fun and dance the day away; you can too by wearing comfortable cotton shorts that aren’t too tight on your leg. For your shoes, go for black trainers that complement the rest of your outfit.

Pool Party Picks


Planning to get some rays from a rooftop pool party? When it comes to what to wear, we’ve got you covered. Whether you’re ultra-confident or like to be more reserved when you attend these types of events, there are plenty of options for you to choose from. When it comes to swimsuits, pastel colours are in this season and it’s important to remember that the lighter you go, the more heat repellent you become. This can ultimately make you feel more comfortable on your outing. However, just because light colours are sun-repellent, it doesn’t mean that you can bypass sun protection! Don’t be afraid to pair your swimsuit with a silky-cover up that can be easily put on and taken off when you please.


Show off your fun side when attending a pool party this summer. We recommend wearing microfiber polyester shorts, and because they absorb more water than polypropylene and nylon — you can opt for bright colours. When it comes to the shirt, you want to go for something opposite to your shorts; so, if you go for bright shorts, go for a dark shirt. You should go for the tropical-look to present those true summer vibes.

Beach Walking Wonders


Comfort is everything on your summer beach walk. The last thing you want to feel is the struggle of making it to the other end — to stay comfy, you need to wear light materials that will allow you to drift across the soft white sands. We recommend wearing a beach dress that is made up of viscose materials and go for something that is predominantly dark but has flushes of bright, bold and beautiful colours in. Pair these with loose-fitted sandals that can be easily removed when you’re venturing out into the water.


Impress your date with simple attire this summer. When picking your shorts, go for a fitted chino-style that are made from cotton, as this will undoubtedly complement the rest of your outfit and prepare you for the rest of the day if you decide to visit restaurants or a pub. Pair your shorts with a plain top and wear a pastel-coloured shirt on top without buttoning it up, as this will help you show off a mix of materials and colours. When it comes to deciding on your shoes, pick white!
