What better way to start off the spring season and the rule of six outdoors than with a picnic! From the 29th March we can meet six people or two households outdoors, including private gardens – yay! Weather dependent of course, but it’s about time for a well-needed catch up with friends and family that doesn’t involve walking.
Need some inspo for an aesthetic picnic that’s totally worth getting a pic for Insta?
What To Take To A Picnic
- Picnic Blanket – The number one essential to any picnic – gingham is a classic picnic print but you can still get the aesthetic with floral, stripes and more.
- Hamper – A woven hamper basket adds to the aesthetic picnic vibe, although it’s not the most practical! Cold food needs to be kept in a cool bag (just leave it out of your Insta pics) and you can pop the rest of the dry food in the basket.
- Array of food and snacks – There’s no rules when it comes to picnic foods. Whether you want to go down the sandwich and cake route, croissants and fruit or even a takeaway, just pick out your favourite foods and enjoy – don’t forget cutlery and plates if you need it!
- Drink of choice – Go down the boujee route with champagne and prosecco or keep it tame with flasks of tea or fizzy drinks.
You’ve got all the essentials needed for a picnic, now just finish the vibes off with a killer look. Keep scrolling to see our favourite picnic outfits.
Gingham Milkmaid Tops
The ultimate picnic top right? We can’t get enough of these – one in every colour please! Why not match your blanket with a gingham milkmaid top. Tick all the trends with a square neckline, short puff sleeves and gingham pattern. Perfect for a picnic date and beyond, just style with ripped jeans and sandals.
Shirred Bardot Dress
A dress may not be the first thing that you reach for but opt for a floaty style like this bardot dress and you can sit around all-day-long in comfort without compromising on style. This outfit brings all the summer vibes with buckle footbed sandals in extra wide fit and a classic white denim jacket. We want our looks as Insta-worthy as the picnic right gals?
Ribbed Swing T-Shirt
It’s time to bring out lighter and brighter palettes and this look is everything we’re after! A basic tee and ripped jeans look with added detail in the accessories. I know what you’re thinking… white jeans and grass don’t mix! This is where your picnic blanket comes in handy to keep the white fresh. We love how our girl is wearing it with sandals and a dreamy straw hat.
Ditsy Tea Dress
Looking for something floral? Bloom into the season with this tea dress. If you’d rather go for a darker base so you’re not worrying about spilling something, we know you’ll love this style. Keep it casual for a picnic catch up with the girls in high top trainers and a mini cross body bag.
