Now that restrictions are starting to lift in the UK most, if not all, of our plans are based outdoors. Whether you are throwing a BBQ for yourself and your 5 closest friends, booking in an outdoor bottomless brunch, or heading to the park with your housemates, you’re probably going to want something new to wear. With the UK weather being so unpredictable, we can’t always opt for our nice summer dresses and heels, we need to think a little more practically. Discover some practical outfits for meeting friends outdoors, as styled by Missguided Influencers.

A bodycon dress and a pair of barely theres aren’t gonna cut it at your local park. Maybe save up those looks for June 21st and opt for something a little more suitable for the outdoors.

Most bars and restaurants opening on 12th April with outdoor seating will probably have a bit of shelter and a patio heater or two, but there is nothing worse than feeling chilly and wanting to go home early. Take a look at some outfit inspo for meeting your friends outdoors.

Outfit ideas for meeting your friends outdoors

Team a leather jacket with a pair of dad jeans and a bralet, for that awkward ‘inbetween weather’. Add some chunky jewellery and opt for trainers or heels depending on the vibe.

Going on a walk with friends? You will want something actually practical to wear. Team a crop top with some cargo trousers and layer a shirt over the top. If the chill starts to get real, through on a nude puffer jacket too.


Wanting something a little more dressy for outdoor dining? Opt for a cropped shirt and a pair of flares. Add a faux leather blazer for the evening chill and you’re good to go.
