So what do you wear? A beautiful floral dress is always a good option. There is a pattern and style for everyone. From dainty prints to bold colours and prints, to the always in fashion monochrome print.

As we all know the British weather is always unpredictable, so be prepared with a simple summer hat, your sunblock and a light jacket or knit to cover your shoulder if the temperature dips.
