See ya, joggers – hello pub garden. We can all rejoice, because the moment in the roadmap out of lockdown that we’ve all been waiting for has finally been reached. Yep, socialising in outdoor restaurants and beer gardens is finally back ON, people, which means we’ve got lots to get excited about… and two major decisions to make. 1) What are we going to drink??? and 2) what the hell are we going to wear?!
Sure, April 12 acts as the perfect excuse for a wardrobe refresh, but when we’ve been living in loungewear/hoodies/leggings for the past god-knows-how-long, we’ve kinda forgotten how to dress properly.
Fear not: our Fashion Editor, Charlie Teather, has been busy curating the ultimate edit of the best pub garden outfits that’ll actually keep you warm in this spring-but-not-spring weather, while the rest of the team have been busy hunting down the best jeans, trainers, trench coats… y’know, all those pieces we haven’t had to buy in time.
We’ve also been keeping our eye out for discount codes for your favourite sites (think Net-A-Porter, ASOS and H&M) so you can save while you shop for the ultimate post-lockdown outfit. Speaking of which, the stalwart back bone of the great British high street (read: River Island) is offering 20% off your £60 order if you’re a new customer on the site right now. Which is obviously amazing news, not least because their spring/summer collection just *screams* post-lockdown fun.
River Island discount codes: 20% off £60 order
Just in time for real life encounters, a River Island promo code has dropped which is genuinely really good. Valid until April 25, it offers new customers 20% off orders over £60, which means you can bag a £60 outfit for £48. Dream.
Not a new customer? Fear not. You can still get free standard delivery on all orders over £15.
Tempted? You bet. But you’ll probably want to know what’s worth buying before you take the plunge. We’ve scoured the entire River Island website and whittled their complete offering to an edit of 11 on-trend pieces that’ll work hard all season long.
