Feel like a Queen with Vivien of Holloway for the Jubilee
This summer, our Queen celebrates her 60th year on the throne, so now’s the time to celebrate the best in British fashion. Hark back to the year of the coronation with your fashion choices, by selecting 1950s inspired pieces in feminine shapes and fabrics from Vivien of Holloway, my favourite dress designer ever, for flattering curvy figures. Red pencil dress above is (£89)
Vivien of Holloway have got everything the stylish, gal-about-town needs for a right royal knees up, from pin-up style pencil dresses and full-skirted circle dresses, to casually cute day dresses and a selection of sassy separates.
If a traditional street party with all the trimmings is what you’re planning, then something pretty and classic is what we suggest! Our fabulous Fifties halterneck circle dresses are our bestselling frock and let us tell you why: The fully lined boned bodice delicately nips in your waist and shapes your bust into a perfectly pin-up silhouette, while the flattering halterneck skims the shoulders and collarbone. Slip a full, frothy petticoat beneath the full circle skirt for a touch of added glamour, and just try to stop twirling! (£79)
Or if you prefer to keep things casual, our 1940s swing trousers will have you dancing the night away in style and comfort! Based on an original pattern , these wide- legged, high-waisted slacks are both flattering whilst being able to withstand serious celebration! Team with a red or white gypsy top for a cute and patriotic look. Jeans (£45)
If you’re planning a Jubilee picnic with friends and family, perhaps a red and white Peggy Lee Day Dress would work for you? With a white square collar and white edged pockets, this A-line dress adds a touch of elegance to your outfit without making you feel restricted and overdressed. Add a pair of pumps and a cute ponytail and you’ll be set to frolic to your heart’s content! Dress (£69)
But perhaps a more glamorous celebration is on the cards for you! They have a fabulous collection of figure hugging pencil dresses that will make you feel like a real British beauty during the celebrations. Cut below the knee and shaped to your curves, these pencil dresses are made in luxurious cotton sateen fabrics and duchess satins and are available with either a flattering wrap top or a boned bodice and halterneck. Whether you’re partial to polka dots, florals or bold block colours in red, white and blue, you can be certain that, with Vivien of Holloway, you will be supporting a British brand with a true vintage heart.Blue Dress (£99) and White Dress – not released yet but about (£89).
