A quintessentially British Summer would not be complete without a prestigous sporting event such as the Henley Royal Regatta an international competition where the Ivy Leagues and boating clubs compete head to head. If Rowers and Style are your thing then this is the event for you. For me its about the glamour where style plays a pivotal role to express how well you can pull off a new look which is understated. It’s definately a look worth exploring if its your first time at Henley and you might as well do it the right way. What I love about Henely Royal Regatta is that the inspiration for style is eccentric and everyone has their own individual preference of taste when it comes to outfits. Sometimes its about taking risk with bold colour seems just more fun or keep it safe and low key if you prefer.
From the bold to the beautiful there is something for everyone but don’t be trashy and wear something called the Naked Dress a trend spotted at Henley over the weekend for women as definate no no. Believe me i’ve seen some things you just should’nt see as we could play fashion police all day to judge the best and worst outfits of the day. Hit or Miss ha ha.
Before you go its important to do your research and feel inspired by adhering to the correct dress code to avoid those fashion faux pas. Alternatively, simply just hire a stylist to ensure every part of your ensemble looks great and finally just enjoy it if you’re up for a spot of random play. You have to admit do we actually come for the rowing, people watching, style or the men. You decide. 🙂
