Paid partnership with Dundas
Party season is upon us! We can finally dine at our favourite restaurants, pull up a pew in one of London’s lively bars and host outdoor gatherings for up to 30 guests. And as things are finally looking up, you’ll want a new summery wardrobe to match.
Switch out of those elasticated waistbands, ditch the slippers and charge into summer soirees with a wardrobe that’s well composed, revived and full of curated pieces that’ll guarantee you stand out from the crowd.
Without further ado, here are the brands we’re loving for summer party season…
Want to achieve a look that A-listers will approve of? Look to DUNDAS, the clothing brand from celebrity fashion designer, Peter Dundas.
With this season being the summer of alfresco dining, dates and events, it’s their latest collection, Urban Jungle, that you’ll want your wardrobe to be filled with.
The range is fiery, fierce and full of character. Think safari jackets, capes and trousers, in crisp white cotton, sun-bleached khaki green and animalier patterns.
For a full leopard print moment, opt for the wide-leg leopard printed byron jumpsuit. Fun yet sophisticated, you can dress this up or down depending on the occasion. Likewise the draped mid-calf dakota dress in zebra print is just perfect for rocking to a girl’s brunch or dressing up with heels in tow for a night on the town.
Steal the show with this black and gold wilde jumpsuit. Pair it alongside some gold heels and dance the night away twinkling under the lights.
Step up your look with this statement leather-style jacket. Complete the look with a touch of leopard print.
For an animal print moment, look to the Beau Dress. Pair this with combat boots for a real festival summer look.
For a casual yet stylish look, try the animal print delta dress. It's another one that you can throw combat boots with to complete the look.
Somerset by Alice Temperley is an exciting new range from the popular brand, Temperley London, bringing with it a collection full of seasonal favourites that you can take into the party season.
Available from John Lewis, explore the range that’s full of florals, animal prints and one-of-a-kind jumpsuits. Our favourite being this dotted animal jumpsuit from the range – it features a snake skin design that’s been toned down and is finished with a black belted tie to cinch in the waistline.
Another of our favourites from the range is the tiger fern blouse. Think subtle balloon sleeves and a stunning black and cream fern design. Pair it alongside these tie waist culottes and gold jewellery to raise it from day wear to dinner party in an instant.
Luxury British brand, L.K Bennett isn’t playing around with their new range. Expect bright colours, bold patterns and standout coords to fuel you through this summer’s party season.
We love this bold pink floral coord that’s both over the top and an excellent night outfit for parties, events and the impending work-dos that are booking up your summer diary. Perfect for a wedding guest look too, it’s already been spotted on stylist and Instagrammer @heartzeena. You can even switch out the trousers for matching shorts and shoes too.
For a day at the races, look to the lena cream and black polka dot print silk jumpsuit part of their Royal Ascot x L.K.B collection. Opt for the matching heels and clutch or go bold with a pair of pink stilettos to complete the look.
Every fashion editors favourite, Reformation boasts a wealth of products that are just perfect for elevating any occasion.
Dress to impress this wedding season and opt for a pretty number like this Kourtney Dress. Part of the midi dress trend taking over this season’s summer must-haves, it has a fitted bodice and centre back smocking. For a more colourful statement, look to the Nikita Dress. Again another midi but this is one full of pretty ruffles and adjustable strap ties.
Bring out your favourite jeans and pair it with this ruffled Viviana Top. It’s silky, sexy and one that’ll soon become a wardrobe staple.
