There’s nothing Brits love to do more than discuss the weather. Oh, and complain about it. Whether it’s the rain being too wet or the sun being too sunny, chatting all things meteorological is a national pastime. Chances are you’ve already had a conversation with at least one person about the UK’s impending heatwave.

And while we will inevitably grumble about it, we also acknowledge that this might just be the one day of the year that we can head out in the evening without a jacket. So we’re going to embrace it. 

In our experience, the key to heatwave happiness is getting your outfit right. From speedy-to-style shorts sets to easy breezy linen trousers, we’ve put together four simple, heatwave-ready outfits that you can experiment with when the mercury rises. Repeat after me: loose, light layers, non-clingy fabrics and a comfy pair of sandals. Simple.
