Summer is here! With the warm weather comes a calendar full of special occasions, which of course means chic outfits to match. This year we’re approaching occasion dressing in a mindful manner, opting for versatile pieces that can be worn for several different events. The dress that you wear to a day at the races can easily be transformed into a wedding guest look for later in the summer – just switch up your accessories and you’ll be good to go.
From bank holiday garden parties to weddings and days at the races, we’re sharing an outfit for every occasion summer has to offer below!
Queen’s Jubilee Outfit Ideas
An extended bank holiday weekend calls for celebration! Whether you’re headed to a street party or enjoying the home comforts of a garden gathering, the Queen’s Jubilee is an excellent opportunity to perfect subtle British dressing. Opt for lightweight pieces in a blue and white colour palette that will look gorgeous all summer long.
Henley Regatta Outfit Ideas
The world’s most prestigious regatta and the high point of the rowing season calls for ladylike frocks in sweet summery prints. Be mindful of the dress code, which only allows below the knee dresses and skirts. Opt for a sophisticated floral midi with pops of red and blue, a nod to the traditional colours of the rowing clubs that participate in the races. Ladies are now allowed to wear trousers to the Henley Regatta, so you may want to take advantage of this new style era with a refined suiting-inspired look.
Queen’s Club Tennis Championship Outfit Ideas
The star-studded tennis event calls for your most sophisticated summer looks. Floaty florals in ladylike silhouettes are always a good idea, but you can always pay homage to clean tennis whites in a LWD.
Wimbledon Outfit Ideas
This world-class event is the highlight of the summer for tennis and fashion enthusiasts alike. Wimbledon is slightly less formal than the Queen’s Tennis Championship, but formal dress is still highly encouraged. Go for an elegant floral dress or LBD, or create a more androgynous feel with a suit in summer colours.
Ascot Outfit Ideas
What could be more sartorially satisfying than a day at the races? The Royal Ascot is the place to break out your sophisticated style know-how, but be sure to keep the strict dress code in mind. Ladies are asked to wear dresses and skirts with below-the-knee hemlines and covered shoulders and midriffs. We recommend elegant midi dresses in pretty pastels and hints of pearl jewellery.
(Be sure to keep the blazer on all day with this outfit!)
