Save the Date Dress Guide - Easter

 

March 29 – Save the Date Dress Guide,  Easter is on

Easter is on! You can plan that easter egg hunt with the kiddies in the garden, sharing the fun with one other household. Boris Johnson has said the rule of six will begin again on March 29 (or more can meet together outside if just 2 households). Essential dresses include yellow brights, try our Amo Couture Betsy dress for daisy print freshness, add a layer for colder days such as a gilet. Easter school holidays are due to last two weeks for the UK, so this means adventures across beauty spots although campsites won't yet be open, you can still day trip, maybe head for the coast. Wear our Baloot white St Tropez dress for a flirtatious Aztec vibe. Fancy a spot of golf or tennis? March 29 sees these popular sports returning.

April 12 – Cocktails & Hair Salons

Hurray for cocktails with the girls! Pubs re-open from April 12  (although it will be for outside only). Expect pubs to cater for clients in all manner of styles in beer gardens, outside tent areas for rainy days and heated dining pods for cosy restaurant eating outdoors. This is when you can wear a trendy satin day dress with small heels (try to avoid the grassy areas). Again, only six people at a time but you can meet with your friends around the table in the garden area for a cocktail or two. If you’re brave, wear a cocktail dress and really go to town and dress up – after all, we’ve been in joggers for a year and it’s about time we got up off the sofa. Shops also re-open. Plan a shopping date with your bestie and dress to impress with a satin blouse, leatherette pant and a large shopping bag. The simple pleasure of grabbing a coffee outside will be a relief for many, we've all missed a natter with a friendly face. And we cannot forget, hair and beauty salons re-open. Book now to avoid disappointment, queues are expected to be long for your favouirte stylist. Our image shows the new range from Atom Label, see if you can find your next dress here. . .
