With the long-awaited summer season finally upon us, a host of events start to fill up the calendar from weddings to outdoor garden parties, not to mention the classic English horse racing season. While these are all exciting events, they do lead to the eternal question – “What do I wear??” I’ve selected some chic, easy to wear pieces to get you through the season in style paired with a selection of our season’s handbags.
The Royal Ascot is one of the most anticipated events of the season with women searching well in advance for elegant attire adhering to the strict dress code of covered shoulders and 10cm diameter hats. It is a lovely day out with all attendees dressed to the nines. Floaty pastel dresses with floral prints are perfect to pair with a feathered or floral hat. The Sophie Clutch is great for making a subtle statement while our Powder Blue Alex Cross Body can be carried as a roomy clutch and converts easily to cross body when you need your hands free to cheer on your winning horse.
Casual summer get togethers lend themselves to beautiful white and cream outfits. I love a jumpsuit with a strong print. Throw on a pair of court shoes and you’re ready to go with minimal effort. Our stone handbags with touches of green are perfect for these gathering – the mini bag when you are keeping things simple and the tote bag when you want to carry a shawl or cardigan for cooler evenings.
CLASSIC SUMMER WEDDING
Summer weddings are in abundance with the warm weather and blooming flowers. Pretty pastels are an obvious choice, but embroidery, ruffles or structured silks make the outfit a little more special. Our Imogen Clutch Bag is a beautiful piece to dress up a more casual outfit while our Midi Amy Bag in Peony is dressy enough for a wedding with room for a change of shoes to dance the night away.
BLACK TIE WEDDING
I really enjoy black tie events as they give us an excuse to step out of our daily lives to be a little glamorous just for an evening. Besides the classic black, I love long dresses of flowing silks in opulent colours. Strappy heels and chandelier earrings add drama to your oufit while our Sophie and Imogen Clutch Bags are the perfect show stopping accessories. With the new addition of navy blue, there are a number of beautiful colours to choose from.
