Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Top 5 Dresses

With the Queen’s Jubilee coming up, you’ll need a dress that encapsulates the regal splendour of this uniquely British celebration. The Jubilee falls in June, but as we all know, you can never rely on British weather to be predictable, so make sure to accessorise your dress with a cute cardigan or effortless pashmina. The top five dresses to be seen in at the celebrations are so varied, there’ll definitely be something for you, whatever your size, shape or style!

Bodycon Dresses

Phase Eight Geisha Dress

This style works best on slimmer, petite frames or ladies who want to show off an hour-glass figure. These figure-hugging numbers are wonderful because they can transition effortlessly from day time to evening. A brightly coloured floral body-con dress with some chunky costume jewellery and sandals is great for a day time street party. Change to heels and glitzy jewellery for a posh evening shin-dig.

Shift Dresses

Mary Portas Snake Panel Dress

It’s hard to go wrong with this classic style. A shift dress can look formal as well as bright and summery – it all depends on colour and print. These dresses are very versatile and suit all kinds of figures. Try a bold floral print for day time parties for a guaranteed summery look, or a plain black or navy blue for more formal events. Match with patent stilettos for a classic Kate Middleton inspired look.

Skater Dress

Don’t be fooled into thinking skater dresses are too casual for jubilee celebrations. A skater dress is essentially a younger version of the more classic shift dress. It is perfect for younger women and can be dressed up or down so easily.

Maxi Dresses

Minuet Petite Blue Maxi Dress

This is the answer for tall ladies. This glorious summer look is so sophisticated and stylish. A floating, long maxi dress really does speak for itself. Accessorise with a chunky belt if you want to define your waist or choose statement jewellery for a fresh, modern feel. Maxi dresses often come in lovely light chiffon materials, making them ideal for summer jubilee parties. At the same time, their long length is suited to changeable British weather – a sudden breeze won’t leave you blushing!

Tulip Dresses

Oasis Wrap Tulip Dress

Tulip dresses, with their gorgeously gathered skirts are incredibly flattering. They look wonderful on pear shaped and apple shaped figures, because they draw attention to the slimmest part of the waist, whilst the ruffling in the skirt draws the eye down. You can accentuate this affect by wearing with a long necklace and high shoes. Tulip dresses often come in fairly simple prints, or neutral shades, but this complements the softer, feminine shape.

  1. The dresses are really beautiful but I think that the most important thing is to soak up the atmosphere of the celebration regardless of what you are wearing. I have to say that as far as the preparations of the jubilee are concerned the organizers have done a remarkable job thus far. It seems to me that not a single day goes by without a new revelation of something that will contribute to the celebrations and above all the fact that the jubilee will take place not only in London but all around the world. That’s why I think it’s great that the members of the Royal family have been promoting the jubilee in the Commonwealth countries as well. As a Canadian I can say that the bond between Canada and Queen Elizabeth has always been very strong and the jubilee is a great opportunity to celebrate her life as well as the values that we and the British have in common.
