Long days, light nights – midsummer in Scandinavia calls for garden parties and endless days under the sun. As midsummer magic meets wedding season, dress up in light garments and flowy summer dresses, and always have a swimsuit handy for the occasion of a refreshing and romantic midnight swim.

Whatever your summer plans might be, you won’t go wrong with a go-to voluminous dress. The Iro Maxi Dress from the Swedish brand By Malina suits summer occasions from weddings to garden parties or late-night picnics by the sea. Wear it with strappy sandals for an elegant party look or boots to put an edge on the style. A straw hat on top adds a bit of extra cuteness!
