This month is really the correct time to be deciding what to buy for The Season, consisting of various events which are due in the coming summer months. Chelsea Flower Show, Goodwood racing, Windsor polo, Wimbledon and Henley Regatta… Also, your own private parties which all seem to come in a rush over the summer when we hope the sun will shine on marquees and lawns everywhere. Whether it is a wedding, anniversary party, Christening, or one of each, smart and simple is best; lovely clothes that can be perked up with a fabulous hat or teamed with flat shoes and worn in a more decontracté style.
A dress on its own always works for a long day of fun and frolics, and at Winser there are any number to choose from. The black and ivory Crepe Shift Dress is particularly appropriate.
A summer coat over a dress is also ideal, and we are all loving the new Crepe Jersey coat, £250. The Winser lightweight summer tweeds, in red, navy or caramel, consist of dresses and coats.
Daughters might go for the blue and white Cotton Textured striped dress and cardigan-jacket or the pale blue suit, in Milano. Don’t let’s forget the Pearl Tailored suit, as worn so elegantly by Yasmin le Bon, definitely smart enough unless the dress code is specifically skirts only. In the case of Royal Ascot, do read Kim’s Style Agenda interview this month with Juliet Slot, Ascot’s Commercial Director, for tips on what to wear and an insight into one of Britain’s most iconic events of the Social Season. For those of you who are really confused, Fenwick has partnered up with Royal Ascot to offer style advice for that oh-so important outfit, and as Fenwick stock Winser London, you’ll be one of the best-dressed at the race!
