Great Clothes For Those Chilly Summer Evenings

It feels great to be able to get out and enjoy some sunshine. I for one am glad that the summer is nearly here. Getting the chance to spend more time outdoors with family and friends really appeals. So, with this in mind, I thought I would write a summer fashion related post. As you can see here, most stores already have all of their warm weather clothing in stock. That includes clothes that you can use to keep you warm should the sun pop behind a cloud or for the evening.

Stylish kimonos for all occasions

This year, the kimono is back in vogue. There are several cuts available, everything from full-length to hip-length versions. If you are planning an evening out, a long kimono is the most glamorous option.

The shorter ones look good when worn with jeans or soft trousers. The only drawback is that they do not have buttons or a zip down the front. If you do not think this will be practical, just buy one that has a belt, instead.

Versatile straps

Wraps are another nice option. But, they are not ideal if you are doing something active. They can easily double up as something to sit on for a picnic or on the beach. Provided you choose something that is lightweight enough you can easily slip one into your bag. Or, even tie it to the strap. 

Striking shrugs

Shrugs only cover your arms and shoulders. On the hanger, they look a bit odd, but once you try a couple on you will be hooked. They tend to look best worn with casual clothes than they do with something like a party dress. 

Lightweight cardigans

If you prefer something a little warmer, a cardigan is ideal. You can wear one with virtually any outfit. Provided you choose one that is made out of a material that does not crease easily, you can slip one into your handbag or tie it around your waist.

Stylish jackets

Of course, jackets are a good option too, especially if you are planning to be out for the entire evening. Within an hour or two of the sun going down some of the clothing items, I have already mentioned above are not likely to keep you warm enough. So, it is wise to have at least one summer jacket in your wardrobe. If you are not sure which type to choose, you might find this article helpful. It looks at 10 classic jacket cuts and provides suggestions of how you could wear each one.

Don’t forget to accessorise

All of the above items are available in a range of styles. So, it will not be hard to find something that fits in with the way you like to dress.  Hopefully, you have enjoyed this article and would like to read more of my fashion related posts.

  1. I don'y dare leave the house without a cardigan. Here in the NE Scotland the weather is very unpredictable!

    1. Oh gosh yes of course. But most weather is unpredictable in the UK.

  2. I like to keep cosy so I always carry a long sleeved top or cardigan with me. I do love kimonos.

  3. I have a range of long cardigans that I bring out each summer ... so long as it doesn't rain, that's the perfect coat!

    1. Oh yes, I wouldn't be without a cardi during the summer.

  4. I love the idea of a cosy shrug, just to throw on when it gets a bit cooler in the evenings.

  5. I am a total cardigan girl! But I have a beautiful short length kimonos that I wore a lot a few years ago so I’ll be very glad to get that back out again.

    Great post, let’s hope summer is really coming. I’m in Wales this week and feel I need more than a cardigan though x

    1. Oh yes me too, cardigans are an absolute must all year round.

  6. I love a long, light cardigan and usually go out with one.

  7. I always feel the cold so always make sure I've got a cardigan folded up in my bag when we go out for later on.

    1. Yes you may never know when you need one.
