Outfits for your first post-lockdown drink

Post Lockdown Drinks Outfits

Lockdown has meant that many of us have missed out on seeing loved ones and friends, going on holiday, hosting birthday parties and attending weddings, and much more. I think that the updated government advice allowing pubs to open has given those (who are able) a much needed break from being cooped up inside for months. It's a small win, a celebration, a sign that things are (dare I say it) starting to get better, while remembering that protecting ourselves and others is still of the utmost importance.

If you are planning on heading out for a bite to eat or a drink with your friends and supporting your local, there's no reason you can't get dressed up. It might seem like the first time in forever (cue an Anna of Arendelle solo) since you put your best outfit and makeup on - so if you're going to do it, why not do it properly? 😉

If you're looking for going out-out outfits, I've put together a few looks to give you some inspiration. That's right, I got dressed up so that you didn't have to... 

I usually love dresses, but this year I'm trying out more jumpsuits and playsuits for a different look. I've found that jumpsuits can be so lengthening, which is ideal for me as I'm on the short-to-average side when it comes to height. Of course, there's nothing wrong with embracing your height whether you're small, tall or in between - I, personally, like to add a few inches.

With the looks below, I've chosen a gorgeous mesh-sleeve playsuit, a sage-green one-shoulder jumpsuit and a black jumpsuit with mesh detailing - all from Femme Luxe*.

This mesh-sleeve playsuit is beautifully tailored at the waist, and the mesh is so current. It's on the more dressy side, and definitely requires a dash of highlighter on your legs to make the most of them during the warm evenings!

This green one-shoulder jumpsuit is perfect for a night out at your favourite bar with your friends. I would accessorise with a necklace and bracelet to embellish that bare arm, and it definitely needs heels due to the length of the legs. Size up if you're on the larger side of your size.

Black Mesh Panel Wide Leg Jumpsuit - Wendy

This black jumpsuit is so slinky and elegant. I love how the mesh detailing brings a bit of uniqueness to an otherwise simple look. It's stretchy, so I would purchase your regular size. Accessorise with bejewelled earrings - and heels are a must! The legs are quite long, and might need taking up an inch or two in my case.
