Summer is a season of spontaneity and fun, a time when plans can change as rapidly as the weather, and a day out can become a night out before you’ve had time to notice. All of which is great news, but it does mean that you might sometimes find yourself wearing clothes that don’t exactly suit the occasion. What began as a normal day at the office can turn into drinks in the sunshine after work and then into a great night out! Popping home to change your outfit halfway through just isn’t an option, so what can you do to make sure that your clothes will suit whichever situation you finds yourself in this summer?
Our advice is to dress in dresses! Light, bright and effortlessly versatile, the right choice of summer dress can give you an outfit that is perfect for the office, the park, the restaurant and beyond. A few day-to-evening dresses are an essential requirement in any summer wardrobe, giving you the confidence to wear what you like, secure in the knowledge that you can adapt your look to suit the occasion with the absolute minimum of fuss. With some simple tweaks, or by adding or discarding a few key accessories, you can have an adaptable outfit that will leave you looking perfectly presentable wherever you happen to find yourself. Here are just a few great day-to-evening summer dresses available now at John Lewis.
