OK, so we’d all rather be packing our little wheelie cases ready for our annual EasyJet to the continent. But with the weather heating up in the UK, there’s no reason why we can’t turn our little staycations in the garden into something truly sizzling - no passport required.
Whether you’re camping out under the stars, hosting a socially distanced garden party or just nurturing your plants, people around the UK are turning their outdoor spaces into their very own luxury destinations. Even the celebs are getting in on the garden action, with stars like Nigella Lawson showing us her magical London hideaway complete with fairy lights and Kourtney Kardashian lounging in her own huge field.
But like the perfect holiday, the perfect summer in the garden all starts with the right wardrobe - and we have just the thing! Whether you’ve got landscaped lawns or a balcony the size of a shoebox, our luxe bikinis and floaty maxi dresses will help you make the most of your time in the sun. Who cares if the only person who sees you is the neighbour?
So whatever you plan to do in the ‘Costa Backyardia’ this year, just choose your favourite garden style, put together your summer-ready outfit and get set to soak up the sun in style, thanks to Pour Moi!
Garden trend one: Green-fingered Fashionista
Time to get your outdoor space ready for a long hot summer of fun! And if you like a spot of digging, you’re in good company because the fash pack love to garden. But whether it’s Nicole Richie tending to her veg patch or Lisa Snowdon showing off her beautiful blooms, you know the celebs will make sure they’re looking picture perfect when they’re getting their hands dirty.
So if you can’t beat them, join them with a beautiful gardening outfit all of your own. We think this soft and comfy Jersey T-Shirt dress is just the thing, and its open back will keep you cool as you work. Match with your Hunter wellies and a trowel for Insta perfection!
Garden trend two: Garden Glamour Puss
Luxe bikinis, floaty kimonos, wedge heels… holidays are a great chance for a pool goddess to show off some daring styles. But with the beach and hotels a no-go area, it’s time to turn your garden into your very own summer catwalk.
Pretend you’re strutting around an exotic, five-star luxury resort with the high-glamour Paradiso Kimono. In dramatic black and gold with gorgeous slits on the legs and sleeves, it will really turn heads when you wear it to put the bins out! Match with the curve supporting our Paradiso Triangle Hidden Underwired Top and decadent High Waisted Control Brief and you’ll be ready to bring on the (paddling) pool party!
Garden trend three: Patio Chic
Whether you’re hosting a virtual brunch with the girls or having a coffee and a catch-up with your partner, summer mornings on the patio are the perfect chance to show off your easy, breezy style.
Brunch calls for something ‘glasual’, and to nail the trend try our Textured Frill Wrap Dress in sunkissed yellow. Designed with curves in mind, the V-neckline is so flattering, and the wrap feature lets you adjust the style to suit your shape.
Garden trend four: Balcony Babe
Catching sun from the rooftop? You’ll want to wear something that helps you make the most of every ray, but that isn’t so revealing you can’t look your neighbours in the eye!
Our Belted Control Suit is perfect! With its monochrome palette and adjustable belt detail, it’s the ultimate in Hollywood Glamour! And whilst you’re sitting on your balcony you can remove the straps to get those shoulders golden and maximise your tan!
Garden trend five: Al Dressco
Picnic chic is officially a thing! Post stay-at-home tracksuit, meet-ups with friends in the great outdoors are best done in ditsy florals and gorgeous colour block styles – signifying safe and wholesome fun!
Chances are you’ll enjoy yourself loads more if you put a little effort into choosing the perfect outfit and we have just the thing! Our Azure Halter Top has a subtle ruched detail on a shimmering red base, that will have you feeling picnic-ready in no time! Add our light and breezy Textured Print Trouser and a cute fodera, and you’ll be ready to pop that prosecco in style!
Garden trend six: Glamorous Garden Party
Hosting your own garden party can help you make the most of those sun-drenched evenings. Who cares if your guests are sat a metre away over the garden fence - or are only little faces on your computer screen?
Our Frill Detail One Shoulder maxi dress has day-to-evening wear nailed, and it’s a style you can wear long after lockdown is over. With its one-shoulder design and pretty frill, its lush floral print will have you looking just as blooming as your garden. Plus it’s designed with more room up-top, so you don’t have to worry about the fabric straining as you reach for your Pimms.
Garden trend seven: Garden Games
Water fights, paddling pools, silly sports… if time in your garden means fun, fun, fun, you’ll want something that keeps you feeling confident and secure as you play.
You can’t enjoy using a water pistol if you’re more worried that something will slip out. So step forward the Heatwave Cami Bikini with matching Fold Over Tie Briefs. The hot tropical print looks playful, while the cami top has wider straps and a hidden underwire for extra support.
Garden trend eight: Star-crossed Lover
If all that lying in the sun wearing next to nothing has ignited your passion for your partner, we don’t blame you. Hot summer days have a funny way of turning into equally hot summer nights!
But to get a romantic garden date night really sizzling, try our worn-to-be-seen Rebel Strapless Longline bra with trousers or a cute mini. Just add a blazer over your shoulders if you’re feeling chilly. The ‘is it lingerie, is it a top?’ question will get your steamy dinner conversation started as you dine under the stars.
