Happy Hour in the City
Master your boardroom-to-bar outfit options.

An al fresco drink in the sun is the perfect tonic to wrap-up a summer’s day in the office or after a long day WFH (working from home). But remember, it’s all about your outfit! Take your pick from lightweight summer tailoring from the likes of Oak and Fort and Aritzia, sticking to soft pastel shades and heat-friendly fabrics, such as relaxed linens and air-con cool cottons. A Sandro blazer, layered over a summer dress from Ted Baker, looks great paired with a Stuart Weitzman sandal, while a Jimmy Choo slip-on is a must-have for his summer workwear wardrobe.

Picnic Perfect Style
My favourite way to spend a sunny day.

When it comes to summer, a picnic blanket is all you need to transform a simple patch of grass into an instant social gathering. The key to the ultimate picnic attire lies in striking a balance between comfort and style. A pair of Levi's denim cut-offs twinned with a casual shirt from Lacoste is exactly the look we’re talking about. Or try a print dress that falls to the knee or below teamed with a pretty cardi for easy style. You will, after all, be dining at floor-level. Athleisurewear is another picnic essential, especially if you plan on getting sporty before or after you eat. Nike trainers, a Puma short and a logo T-shirt from Adidas keep it low key.

Dinner with the Stars
Shine bright on warm summer nights.

The opportunity to eat and drink beneath a blanket of twinkling stars is one of the unique pleasures of dining outdoors on a warm summer evening. For oh-so-special occasions like these, nothing short of a little glamour will do. Think Ted Baker maxi-dresses with plunging necklines in feather-light fabric. He can match the mood in tailored Polo Ralph Lauren chinos paired with a classic Armani shirt worn with a sleek blazer from Harry Rosen (that he can loan to her if she gets chilly). 

Make an occasion of eating under the stars this summer with on-trend seasonal eveningwear and accessories for him and her from the likes of Coach, Movado and Furla, all at McArthurGlen Vancouver.
