Garden Party Glamour for the Jubilee Weekend

The Queens Platinum Jubilee is fast approaching and we’re getting excited for a long weekend of sun, snacks, and celebrations. 

Here at The Bentall Centre, we think a royal weekend is not complete without garden party glamour fit for a queen. Thankfully, we have a full line-up of Jubilee outfits picked out by the fabulous fashion blogger Josephine, who you might know better as @chicatanyage. Believing you can look chic and stylish at any age, we invited Josephine along for a full day of fashion.

From floaty florals to lightweight linens, let’s take a look at what Josephine recommends for your Jubilee weekend.






Starting in Cos, Josephine has paired this bold floral print dress with a pair of elasticated waist barrel leg trousers. 

This 100% cotton relaxed fit dress makes for a “versatile colourful outfit that will be ideal for a Summer Jubilee party”. 

Feeling the florals, we also saw Josephine admire this flowing floral dress, paired with the perfect pink cover-up.


Next up, Zara…

“I have not visited Zara for a long time. When I visited the one on the second floor of the centre I felt like a kid in a sweet shop. The bright colours were fantastic. I was spoilt for choice. Should I choose the pinks, blues or greens?”

Heading into Massimo Dutti, Josephine picked out the perfect green linen maxi dress. If you’re looking to keep cool and comfy in the summer, lightweight linens are the way to go.

“This is the first year that I have experimented with shades of green and I really like the colour.”

Why not pair your summer dress with a raffia bag like this one Josephine found in Bentalls Department Store.

No garden party attire is complete without summer accessories. From straw hats to silky scarfs, here are a few of Josephine’s recommendations.

We can’t wait to see the Jubilee fashion that emerges from the upcoming bank holiday! Tag us in your outfit pictures and make sure to check out @chicatanyage on Instagram, or read Josephine’s blog, Chic At Any Age.
