A versatile jersey dress makes the perfect base for plenty of outfits. We think that this M&Co Navy Blue Scoop Neck Jersey Maxi Dress is a great starting point when dressing for any weather this season.

On its own, this dress pairs beautifully with any combination of sunglasses and sandals in the sun. On colder days, pair it with a cardigan for all-day comfort.

If a lighter piece of knitwear for the Summer months is what you need, our M&Co Sage Green Essential Cardigan is lightweight and gives a bright lift to your outfit in its sage green hue.

It’s easy to be caught out by a chill in the air during a typical British summer, so keeping a jumper or two to hand is wise. With the right accessories and clever layering for when the sun does decide to peak out, it’s easy to give your knitwear a warm-season twist.

Tips on Dressing for This Weather

Dressing for unpredictable Summer weather in the UK requires a tricky balance between staying warm and not overheating. Start with lightweight, breathable layers that can be easily added or removed. A long-sleeve shirt or a light cardigan paired with a versatile jacket, such as a waterproof anorak, is perfect for fluctuating temperatures and unexpected showers!

Opt for comfortable trousers or jeans, and don’t forget accessories like a compact umbrella for protection from the rain. By choosing adaptable basics, you can stay stylish no matter what the weather brings.
