Street Style – To inspire and brighten your day!

The British Summer has so far deprived us once again of lasting sunshine and warmth. I will however not let this stop me from preparing my wardrobe in the hope that we will be stricken with a heat wave. A girl can only dream! So here is some inspiration for you, whether you are fortunate enough to live in a warm exotic place, or if like me you are dreaming of that perfect Summers day to show off your seasonal style!

The Art of Ascot

Ascot – a time of pure indulgence, wealth, status and of course the purpose of the event, horse racing. For many however it is the perfect opportunity to experiment with extravagant outfits, hats, head pieces and fascinators. Ascot has seen the rules of fashion bent and broken, each year topping the previous. Gone are the days of a classic wide-brimmed hat with subtle detailing; and what a relief that is for the milliners, it has provided them with the chance to experiment with shapes, sizes and mediums.

I personally still appreciate the classic Ascot looks. There is something about a woman wondering around with an ice-cream on their head (masquerading as a hat) somewhat tacky and degrading of the event. There is a fine balance of being adventurous and yet maintaining the British elegance this event deserves and demands. Here are a selection of examples that exude these qualities perfectly.
