How To Dress For Summer When The Weather Is Gloomy

How do you dress for summer when it’s dreary outside? Let these looks give you some inspiration …

We all know those kinds of summer days because Ireland has a lot of them; mild, damp, overcast. The kind of day where warm clothing feels too heavy but you feel a bit ridiculous stepping out in your crisp and bright summer gear. These in between days call for some deft dressing that provides coverage but is still summer-appropriate. Namely: long sleeves, knitted dresses and lightweight but on-trend trousers are your new best friends. Scroll the below looks that’ll make you feel summer-ready, no matter what the weather.

Lucy Williams proves that a slinky slip skirt and a basic tank top are veritable summer winners. A leather blazer will keep the chill at bay.

The beauty of a long-sleeved shirt dress is that it provides nice coverage: a mid-calf length works excellently with a heel, as demonstrated by Miuccia Prada. 

Seasonal but practical, a knitted dress is your BFF on rainy summer days.

A shirt and slacks combo never fails to look polished and cool. Sling a jumper around your shoulders for a handy extra layer. 

Wear your favourite summer dress with a lightweight shacket (that is, a shirt-cum-jacket), and a pair of Chelsea boots. 

Thanks to the homespun trend, summer knits can be summarised in one word: crochet. Wear a crochet jumper or cardigan over a long-sleeved tee for a nifty take on summer layering.
