Spring is in full flow and the party season is almost here again. Whether it’s an up and coming graduation party, a summer birthday or a barbecue on a sunny Sunday we’ve got you covered.
Rather than rushing and grabbing the closest pair of shorts why not think of ways to smarten up a bit when the sun is shining? By going for lighter colours and shades it’s entirely possible to wear longer length trousers and sleeves without getting too stuffy. Now is also the perfect time to ditch the socks, show a bit of ankle and have a play with different material footwear i.e. lose the leather!
Whilst out for a meal recently a friend of mine was sporting an outfit that ticked all of the above boxes and I was surprised when he told me his inspiration for the outfit was Mark Wright of TOWIE fame.
Now I’m not a massive fan of the typical ‘Essex look’ but do have to hold my hands up to watching the show from time to time. I do have to admit however that Mark does look good in the above photo and so I’ve decided to use this as the inspiration for my choices below. Don’t worry if you’re on a tighter budget, all of these pieces are available from ASOS at very, very reasonable prices and if the occasion is a graduation party (maybe your own) then now is the time to reap the benefits of having your 10% discount while you can.
