At last: the first official month of summer is here. And with June comes Scandinavia's favourite festivity, Midsummer. After years of social distancing, coming together with loved ones to celebrate summer solstice - the brightest and longest day of the year - feels like a blessing.

Of all summer festivities, Midsummer is one of the trickiest to dress for so it’s high-time to start planning. When thinking about summer parties, a light dress, sandals and a shoulder bag comes to mind, however the less-than-predictable Scandinavian weather can call for a a raincoat, knitted cardigan and rubber boots too. And if you have a bucket hat - also known as sydväst hatt - it is a good idea to pack this as well.

Scandinavians tend to opt for minimalistic looks in neutral shades, but Midsummer truly is the holiday to add a splash of colour and pattern to your look - preferably floral.
