Great British Sporting Events

GET DRESSED FOR GREAT BRITISH SPORTING EVENTS 

 

British Sporting Events Dresses


Whether you're into it or not, in the sports-mad UK you will find that you'll inevitably get involved and LOVE IT! Like Henley, the Ascots or Polo? I daresay the majority of us know VERY little about either sport, but we certainly love supporting them. And by that we mean getting dressed up, drinking champagne in the sun (which we may or may not have to IMAGINE is there) and cheering when we’re supposed to cheer!

Well it turns out that wedding guest dresses are basically the same as our Great British Sporting Event dresses - from punchy prints to ivory whites - so we are delighted to say that Saint Bustier is THE place to come for your feminine, sport-supporting style! Take it from the delightful Amanda Redman, who chose our Nigella dress in ivory white for the Royal Ascots in 2016.


HOW TO WIN AT THE FASHION STAKES

'Dress to Impress' is the code of the ever-so-Bristish sporting event. Whether you like to fit & flair a-la Meghan Markle, or embrace the cape dress a-la Jennifer Lopez, sometimes it's the detail that catches the eye. What better to make you stand out from the crowd than the yellow caped Jennifer Dress, by Badgley Mischka.

There's no mistaking that the wedding and sporting event seasons have a tendency to embrace the fresh and floral. There's definitely something to be said for investing in a classic floral dress that you can wear year in, year out. A little heads up though; if you're keen to be on trend in your timeless classic, SS17 is all about PINK PINK PINK! From hot pinks and magentas to corals and blush tones, pink is the colour of the season. Love both? Put your hands together and allow us to introduce you to Vivienne Westwood's reversible (for high or v-neck options) Prophecy Dress in fuchsia pink.

WANT TO STAND OUT FROM THE CROWD?

Pack a punch, polka your dots or pick a theme! A beautiful polka dot style is ALWAYS on trend at British sporting events (think Jullia Roberts in Pretty Woman) but if you REALLY want to stand out from the crowd a colour theme could be your way to go (purple or green for Wimbledon, perhaps?). If that's not enough to get you noticed, you could always try a GREAT BIG HAT! Just as long as it matches your outfit, of course.

ACCESSORIZE

Be brave, be bold. Whatever you wear, wear with with confidence! Match your shoes, hat and handbag. Remember the colour theory: Either choose colours from the colour wheel that sit side by side, or opposite each other. There are always exceptions to the rule for the more keen fashionistas, but this little rule of thumb generally helps.
