Pussy Cat, Pussy Cat Where Have You Been? I’ve been to London to visit the Queen! Pussy cat, pussy cat what did you wear?
Kitty DoLittle accessories of course!
Most events the Queen attends have dress codes that call for a perfect balance of style and decorum – not necessarily an easy combination. Fashion Editor at Large. Would this Swarovski crystal bag be too much, for instance?
We loved Kate’s dress when she last engaged with her fellow Royals (as spotted on the Fashion Editor at large site) but feel she could have done with a necklace or cuff. Something to work the look with a tiny bit more confidence.
Mind you, Inkhosikati LaMbikiza, the third wife of King Mswati III of Swaziland, picked some eye-catching shoes (did you spy the pink fluffy bits stuck here and there on her court shoes? Certainly brave (and a notable) choice to meet with the Queen. Kick up those heels, girl!
Yes, meeting the Queen would warrant exacting wardrobe deliberation – ask any of the fashionistas who’ve gone to Buckingham Palace and hemmed and hawed over what to wear!
Jess Carter-Morley, The Guardian’s fashion editor, dished about her dilemma back in 2010, and even shared how fashion’s best and brightest all confessed to being stumped.
Thankfully, although celebrations for the upcoming Queen’s Diamond Jubilee will be special, we think they’ll call for a dash more fun and fancy-free flair; not a sober jacket, dress and court shoes combo. Let colour and texture abound!
So, once you’ve planned your weekend using the Queen’s official site for The Diamond Jubilee, take a look at these stylish selections for your perfect ensemble!
This raffia striped handbag by Madaraff is the perfect tote this summer for celebrating both the Jubilee and the Olympics in style.
It’s patriotic without being cheesy, and has a hint of vintage panache that’s in keeping with the spirit of the Jubilee! We just love it! (And it also comes in sharp black and white!)
The Queen’s love of canines is well-knowm. These aren’t her favourite corgis, but Somerville Scarves greyhound scarf is suitably red, white and blue and oh-so-British!
Whether you are planning on celebrating Queen and country, rocking a righteous street party, or just relaxing in front of the telly with a G&T and fancy tiara, have a lovely weekend!
