10 picnic ready outfits: From M&S dresses to ASOS jumpsuits & MORE

Carla Challis

There’s much debate over the best picnic spot in the UK, but ours? Our gardens. Since lockdown restrictions lifted on Monday, allowing up to six of your friends in your very own garden (or two households), garden picnics are the hot ticket. If you don’t have a garden, it’s all about grabbing some cans of wine, a blanket and some high-quality snacks and hitting the local park for a picnic with your mates.

Picnic blanket and bouji picnic basket aside, make your entrance count with the most stylish picnic outfit. We’re talking cool but practical jumpsuits, floaty floral dresses and short co-ords (all paired with cardigans, denim jackets or let’s be honest, puffa coats until the warm weather hits again!) – here’s our edit of the best from the high street.
