After months of entertaining ourselves indoors, the news that pub gardens and dining al fresco is reopening for spring couldn’t come quick enough.

If you’re anything like us then your social outings this year will so far have consisted of a trip to the supermarket with a new face mask, so to say we’re a little out of practice is an understatement.

However, there’s no need to panic because we’ve had a helping hand from our retailers here at the Bridges and found the perfect items to help you dress to impress from the 12th April.

New Look, Green Gingham Ruched Tea Dress

After spending so much of the last year in loungewear, we can’t wait to have an excuse to dress up again. There are plenty of summer dresses hitting the shops at the moment and you can dress them up or down by adding tights, jackets and choosing between heels or flats.

Price £17.99

River Island, Grey tortoise shell aviator sunglasses

We’re hoping for sunny weather so protect your eyes from the sun’s rays with a new pair of sunglasses. Keep them simple and versatile or go for a daring, bright colour to make them a statement piece.

Price £16


Superdrug, Revolution X Friends Limitless Palette

Now that we’re able to meet up with friends again, why not try out some colourful makeup to celebrate? This palette has the perfect combination of neutral shades and bolder colours to create some really stunning looks.

Price £20


Foot Asylum, adidas Originals Ozweego Trainer

We don’t know about you, but we want to make sure we look good from our head to our toes when we meet back up with friends and loved ones. It’s a great time to treat yourself to some new footwear and this pair is easy to style with any outfit.

Price £89.99


River Island, Beige RIR embossed satchel bag

If you’re anything like us then over the last year you’ll most likely have swapped your fancy handbag for a battered bag for life, so why not see what the new season is offering and pick out something new?

Price £38


The Fragrance Shop, Viktor & Rolf Spicebomb Night Vision

You look good when you feel good, and a new fragrance could be exactly what you need to put a little more confidence back in your step. Play it safe with an old favourite or take a risk with one you haven’t tried before.

Price £55.50


Schuh, Dr Martens black blaire sandals

The British weather might be unpredictable, but we have our fingers crossed for sun. It’s an excellent time to invest in a new pair of sandals to show off at the pub and this pair is easy to dress up or down.

Price £89.99


Boots, Dove DermaSpa Summer Revived Medium to Dark Self Tan Mousse

If you like to see yourself with a healthy summer glow then why not fake it until you make it? A gradual formula will help create a natural-looking tan and this one absorbs quickly to prevent any transfer on your clothes or the bedsheets.

Price £4.99


H&M, Regular Fit Shirt jacket

Simple yet stylish, this lightweight jacket is easy to layer – making it perfect for spring weather. Keep it casual with jeans and a pair of trainers or dress it up for date night with a pair of trousers and a smarter shoe.

Price £24.99


Pandora, Double Hoop T-bar Necklace

Accessories are a great way to put your own spin on an outfit and Pandora has a huge variety to choose from. A simple pendant can add a touch of sophistication, while a new charm for your bracelet is a great way to showcase your personality.

Price £80
