It’s the King’s coronation coming up soon and we have an extra bank holiday – yay! Whether you’re planning a classic street party, having a relaxed one at home, or have been invited to a posh do of any kind, I’ve put together a few outfit ideas fit for a King!
Summer Garden Party
This green maxi dress from River Island is the ideal garden party look. Plus, it ticks four – yes four of this season’s key trends! Firstly the colour; spring green is one of the top colours of the summer, next it’s a lovely light sheer fabric, but not too see-through. Ruffles are another tick, and these ruffles are asymmetric, which is not only on-trend but also super-flattering.
A Posh ‘Do’
If you want to go for it and take the opportunity to dress up, this beautiful floral dress from Phase Eight fits the bill. There’s that asymmetry again with the one shoulder strap, and the fit and flare shape gives a gorgeous hourglass silhouette. And as if it’s not lovely enough as it is, it’s got POCKETS! This would be a great buy as it would take you through wedding season and be great for Glorious Goodwood too.
Coronation Street Party
Hopefully, the British weather will be kind and the sun will shine. This gorgeous blue jumpsuit from UK brand Sosandar is a linen blend so it should keep you nice and cool without creasing too much. This would look just as good with metallic wedge sandals or white leather trainers if you need to be comfortable running around dishing out sandwiches…
A More Relaxed Affair…
And if you’re chilling watching at home, or want something a bit more casual, these patterned loose cotton trousers from Karen Millen would be a good choice. The bold print makes them more interesting and again they can be dressed up with heeled sandals and a silky blouse, or down with a t-shirt and flats.
However you celebrate the Coronation, have fun and stay stylish!
