The colour purple is synonymous with royalty, however the royal ladies are well advised in what suits them. We often see the Princess of Wales in Autumnal shades, the Queen Consort in brightened pastels and the Countess of Sussex in Summer brights - always modestly and appropriately styled.
Our nod to the Coronation comes in these glorious silhouettes. We call this striking design our Violet Grace dress, with a cleverly designed tie front to flatter tummies, whilst the length is perfectly flawless. This dress could be worn at any royal themed Celebration! All our Bombshell wearers deserve only the best fabrics and this outfit is made from 100% Silk, with a 100% Polyester lining plus netting. The netting gives the 50s style flare that skims past the hips to give the most feminine shape. A wardrobe highlight!
We have exactly the same style and shape in our gorgeous slate dupion silk. It’s just a gorgeous, subtle and shimmering design. Fit for a royal indeed! All our designs are created with women’s curves in mind. Whether you’re after a royal celebration dress for a big bust or have larger hips, or a menopausal tummy, Bombshell has you in mind. Have a read-through and look at our beautifully curated designs that offer so many gorgeous colours and patterns all made with materials that are sustainable and made to last.
Naturally, Red, White and Blue will be hot favourites for any royal occasion. For more ideas of what to wear to a Coronation party DISCOVER BOMBSHELL’S CORONATION COLLECTION
What To Wear To A Garden Party...
With Summer just around the corner, and the Coronation a few short months away, garden and lawn parties are popping up everywhere! They are something that everyone loves, however, not everyone finds them easy to dress for. The outfits can actually be extremely hard to put together, but don’t worry, we’ve got you covered for etiquette, style and comfort.
With a garden party, you want to wear something that is comfortable and is versatile in case the weather changes. Our ‘Bombshell Red Grace Tie Front Shirt Dress’ is both flattering and elegant and can be paired with a nice simple jacket in case it turns cold outside! The turn- back sleeves and button- through front with a concealed placket is a super comfortable dress that will give you the perfect look for a Coronation Garden Party. Pair this dress with some gorgeous red heels to have a complete royal garden party inspired outfit.
As I mentioned earlier, you can never fully predict the weather for a garden party, so it’s a great idea to take a jacket that looks amazing but does its job of keeping you warm if degrees drop. A jacket that matches your outfit already but isn’t the staple piece is something that you should be aiming for here.
This ‘Bombshell Cheltenham Coat in Red Moss Crepe’ is exactly what we mean. It is a stunning coat with timeless glamour. Paired with a gorgeous red dress you’ll feel like you stepped out of a movie fit for any royal occasion! The coat has of course been designed with your body shape in mind, it will flatter your curves whilst gently sculpting through the bodice and finishes just below your dress as all good coats should do! What’s even better is that it is practical too!
The finishing touch
Want to top off the look with a chic hat? Our delicious Red Saucer “hat” shape suits absolutely everybody. It’s a sweet staple for garden parties, weddings and / or races. Pure elegance.
The “saucer” is a wonderful accessory to any occasion dress, and a perfect alternative to a hat. Easy to take on or off, with no hair hassle! Red Petite Saucer comes in one size, it genuinely fits everyone, and can be bought here.
The Amazing Grace Dress...
We have shown you the gorgeous reds, but did you know we have an absolute must have dress in white, if you are feeling your inner Grace Kelly for your garden party? Yes! I designed this dress with Ms Kelly in mind, as I love 50s fashion, as it was such a wonderful era of women who dressed to impress, yet knew their minds well. We can feel beautiful and feminine whilst being our fabulous selves too. This is our Ivory Soft Stretch Satin Grace Tie Front Bombshell Dress, one of our best sellers, most often bought to stand out from the crowd with a unique brand and style; it truly is a wardrobe statement piece.A quick reminder of delivery times for all our outfits can be found here.
What to wear to a street party
If you are attending a Coronation Street party this year you’ve probably already started thinking about the perfect outfit to wear for the occasion. With a street party, you can be as “out there” as you want – who doesn’t love to dress up and celebrate in a royal fashion?!
Here at Bombshell, we have some amazing pieces that will not only make you shine brightly, but offer you pure comfort in the best possible way at your street party! Street parties are all about having fun, and celebrating with your neighbours, family, and friends in a gorgeous setting with great food and drink. That is why I think this style of dress is perfect!
‘Bombshell’s Ruffle Cuff Dress in Liberty Capevista Blue Silk Crepe de Chine’ has the perfect balance of colour and pattern. This dress is so much fun to wear and also look at, and is a staple piece for the warmer months. The colours are spot on for the Coronation celebrations, with the most gorgeous shade of blue that you could ever imagine! In true Bombshell style, this dress is like a secret weapon. It is designed to make you feel and look amazing!
This dress offers a brighter summery dash of colour pop, with a deliciously glorious pattern. I designed the ‘Liberty Tana Lawn Capevista Confident Cap Sleeve Dress’ with you in mind! This dress is a wardrobe essential and most definitely fit for Coronation celebrations! The elegant length, which is past the knee, is a flattering part of this design with an adjustable wrap bodice being an added bonus to this piece. The colours of this dress are red, white, and blue, so you are bound to fit right into your street party with this piece!
If you are shy of your upper arms and prefer to cover them, then our pretty pocket dress with collar Liberty Print Capevista in Tana Lawn for the Love of Pockets Dress is definitely up your street! Excuse the pun. It's so durable, and when paired with a pair of white pumps, you'll feel like a million dollars.
It is a LIMITED EDITION, so grab it fast! Who doesn’t love a pocket?! We have created the “outsized ” form of pocket to not only make the wearer look slimmer, but they are practical too. Sometimes we don’t want to carry a bag, we just want to pop our phone, keys or lipstick in our pockets!
The design is tea-dress style, with the skirt flaring out slightly with hidden, deep pockets and a turn down collar, ¾ length sleeves, with a well-curated tie belt, this gives you that 50s feminine shape, which is super flattering.
