I’m sure, like me, you’re looking forward to the extra long Bank Holiday weekend (thanks, Liz!). If you’re hosting or invited to a jubilee celebration, then I’ve put together a few ideas for what to wear. Read on if you need help dressing for a garden party or a right royal knees up!
Dressing for a Garden Party or a
Right Royal Knees Up!
Time for Tea?
If you’re dressing for a garden party, you can’t beat a classic floral tea dress. This version by Nobody’s Child, £55, even has an afternoon-tea appropriate strawberry print and is an on-trend bold colourway. Pair with a denim jacket and white leather trainers for a relaxed look, or block-heeled sandals and statement earrings to elevate it for a dressy mode.
Dresses Not your Thing?
A jumpsuit is a great modern alternative to a dress.
This spotty halter neck version from one of my favourite British Brands, Sosandar, £79, is uber glam but easy to wear and would look great with wedge sandals (ideal for not sinking into the grass!). It also comes in three different lengths so you can get the perfect fit.
An Extra Layer:
The Queen is known for rocking a great tailored jacket. Get the look with this boucle edge-to-edge jacket by Hobbs for £189. It is ideal for more formal occasions over a shift dress or with some smart trousers, but it would look equally as good paired with a slogan tee and distressed denim.
This patriotic scarf by Next, £14, is the ideal cover up if it’s a little chilly or to protect from the scorching sun (fingers crossed!).
It’s guaranteed to instantly transform the simplest outfit into jubilee-ready attire.
Finally, don’t forget your accessories. This beautiful cross-body bag by Sixton London in sunshiny mustard yellow will brighten up your outfit and features a removable bumble bee brooch. It’s available from the local Chichester boutique Il Lusso. They also have a brilliant selection of dresses and other clothes, along with sunglasses and jewellery to complete your outfit. Visit them at 1a Franklin Place, Chichester, West Sussex, PO19 1BL, 01243 527283.
