A seasonal favourite, garden parties and bbq’s always seem to be a success during the warmer months. Providing the weather stays on our side, it’s likely that you’ll be attending multiple gatherings this summer, making up for those missed during the pandemic. However, deciding what to wear for seasonal events is no easy task. Therefore, it’s best to ask the host of an event about particular dress code requirements ahead of time, which are generally quite formal for garden parties, and edge on the smart-casual side for BBQ’s. It’s also important to choose a versatile outfit that is able to withstand unpredictable weather, which, as most of us are aware, can often change at the last minute.
Whether you have an eventful season ahead with plans around every corner, or you’re looking forward to a more laid back few months, summer calls for an assortment of bright colours and styles, which are bound to leave a lasting impression. Guaranteed to see you through the beautiful summer weather in style, the Lily Ella summer womenswear collection features a range of elegant, tasteful outfits for ladies. Whether you’re the host of a party, or a valued attendee, browse our top five garden party outfits for ladies below. From figure-flattering midi dresses to floral blouses, our collection, handpicked by our stylists at Lily Ella, will provide some flattering outfit inspiration.

An ideal garden party outfit, this formal take on our classic shirt dress features a luxurious, feminine fit. The stylish ladies Valencia Dress is a versatile piece that can be worn in almost any setting.

Ideal for pairing with our treasure chest necklace and Sammie Hat, finished with your favourite comfortable heels, wedges, or flats, whether you’re a guest, or host, of an event, prepare for the compliments to roll in from every direction with this sophisticated Lily Ella garden party outfit.
Designed in a stunning batik print, our Talia Blouse features a flattering v neck, creating space to coordinate with your favourite necklace, which will be a perfect addition to this stunning formal outfit.

Featuring stunning crimson flowers in bold red and yellow hues printed on a smooth, white cotton fabric, everything about the top makes it the perfect garden party attire, from the soft, durable material, to the flattering print. And, when it comes to creating a show stopping outfit, a top that features bold tones tends to pair well with other, darker outfit pieces. Therefore, our batik print blouse will compliment olive green trousers seamlessly. At Lily Ella, we would recommend completing the look with a rain jacket, which is perfect for if it gets colder, or starts to rain, preparing your outfit for all weather-related eventualities.
Perfect for both casual and formal events, our simple yet timeless Carmel Top features an elegant lace zig-zag design that adds character, and is available as a flattering fit. Among many pieces that will blend seamlessly alongside this sophisticated piece, if you’re looking for a statement-making outfit, our Tula Skirt creates a dramatic but desirable contrast when paired with our white lace top. Looking for a more formal, finished look? Complete the Carmel Top and Tula Skirt combination with a stylish accessory, such as our premium pouch bag.
A comfortable outfit designed to last through summer and beyond, our white lace top and red floral print skirt are the perfect go-to pieces that will prepare you for garden parties, summer outings, and more. However, these can also be mixed and matched with other pieces in your summer wardrobe, making them an excellent, versatile addition to your summer rotation.
