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!
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.
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.
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.
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, 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.
