Royal Ascot 2016 – Our top tips to consider when choosing that perfect outfit.
17th Jun 2016
There's fun, frolicking and plenty of fizz - it's time for one of the world’s most prestigious racing events, it’s the Royal Ascot of course! Envision Julia Roberts in ‘Pretty Woman’ at the polo, but with no need to get your shoes dirty treading the divots! Get ready to look glamorous whilst adorned with gold (much like that famous cup they race for). We've put together a few handy tips to consider for this year’s event. Royal Ascot Fashion - The Perfect Head Wear Choosing the perfect headpiece for the event is essential; from delicately embellished head bands to that all important statement hat. Whatever you decide, make sure that your headpiece suits you and your outfit, and don't forget that unpredictable British weather! Kate Middleton has impeccable hat taste and is certainly one to take some hints from. A headpiece is a solid base to style your outfit around, and we can let you into a secret (shhhh); Kate’s favourite hat designers are Jane Taylor and Philip Treacy. Here are a few of our top picks for that special day at Ascot. This Cream lace-covered pillbox hat from Harvey Nichols is a winner. The hat has a delicate trim with a cluster of coloured flowers and ostrich quills. This hat shouts sophistication See more at: http://www.harveynichols.com/147665-beige-pillbox-hat/#sthash.wxSVpbda.dpuf Rachel Trevor Morgan has a fabulous collection of perfect hats and headpieces; her bespoke designs have such beautiful craftsmanship resulting in a great elegant look that’s perfect for Ascot. We love these three hats from her site; flowers add a splash of colour and intricacy perfect for a summer meet. Footwear When it comes to footwear you obviously want shoes that look great, but keep in mind that you will be on your feet all day and hobbling is not always the most attractive look! We think a summer wedge looks fantastic and are extremely comfortable so there won’t be any stumbling on the grass because of your heels, though maybe because of the fizz! The wedge allows you to gracefully get around from placing bets to running back to that all important picnic before the tape is raised. Ascot Jewellery - Summer Stones Ascot is the perfect occasion to get those big, vivacious gemstones and diamonds out, showing off your rings whilst holding your champagne glass. Here are a few pieces that we think will look perfect with any outfit choice and colour scheme. This graceful yellow diamond twist ring will look perfect at Ascot. The yellow diamonds and bright white diamonds accent each other perfectly and make it a really striking and glamorous piece. This captivatingly beautiful classic diamond tennis bracelet is perfect for this year’s Royal Ascot; a classic design is timeless. The diamonds create a dazzling array across the wrists and glistens with every slight movement in the summer light. Royal Ascot 2016 is off to a great start, if you are going this year let us know your outfit choice, what jewels you've gone for, and how much fun you've had!
