The Chelsea flower show is a world-famous event that is running from the 22nd to the 26th of May in the Royal Hospital Garden, Chelsea in London. It is known for its floral and landscaped garden designs that attract visitors from all over the country, indeed all over the world to visit, breathe in those delicious scents and spot the Royals mooching around too! If you’re lucky enough to be attending this incredible event then it’s just round the corner so you should start planning what you’re going to wear so you can be sure that you’re going to look ‘blooming’ amazing!
What better than to wear some gorgeous Liberty prints and floral dresses to the show?
The ‘Bombshell Confident Cap Sleeve dress’ is a wardrobe essential and a great option to wear at the Chelsea Flower Show. This dress has a flattering sarong skirt with concealing drapes, this design paired with an elegant past the knee length, is the perfect dress to add to your collection. This Bombshell dress ticks so many boxes for any flower show. The colours are so vibrant and the floral pattern is exactly what you need to look and feel amazing whilst taking in all of the floral arrangements, meandering through contemporary garden designs and sitting down for your cup of tea and scone!
The bombshell confident 3/4 sleeve dress
There is no specific dress code to this event but why not pamper yourself and dress up! If you’re anything like me then you jump at the chance to spruce yourself up with some gorgeous dresses that make you feel incredible and feel utterly gorgeous. If you are looking for something that isn’t so flower heavy and has one main colour then perhaps the ‘Liberty Tana Lawn Archive Lilac Pink 'Confident' 3/4 Sleeve Dress’ is the perfect option for you!
This gorgeous pink dress is a much-loved item for you Bombshells. It isn’t too crowded with floral decorations, and it has the most gorgeous shade of pink that complements the floral design perfectly. The dress design has been made so that you feel your most confident! How? The wrap bodice is adjustable so that you can make alterations as you want to, no bloating worries here! This dress is 100% pure cotton using the Tana Lawn Archive Lilac Pink print from Liberty and would work fabulously at the Chelsea Flower Show. Perfect to wear with some pink heels, or some white pumps to really complete the look. I often carry a little bag to events like these with ballet pumps if my feet start to cry!
Let’s go onto some more fun flower events this year!
Chorley Flower Show
The Chorley Flower Show is a three-day event that runs from Friday the 29th of July to Sunday the 31st of July 2022. This is the perfect place for visitors to see and speak to gold-medal winning entrants from some of the biggest shows in the country. Visitors also have access to buy garden bits and bobs. As this flower show is focusing on gardens more than specific floral arrangements, we thought that this dress is a perfect, matching the colours that you are sure to see at the Chorley Flower Show this summer!
This gorgeous ‘Bombshell Liberty Silk Kaftan Dress in Garden of Reverie Green’ has been infused with our Bombshell magic! The beautiful silk green colour is the exact shade of green you deserve to wear to the Chorley Flower Show and I love pairing this light dress with funky green shoes to finish off the look. You know what though? Yellows, blues and pink pumps also look great! If looks alone haven’t sold you on this dress then maybe the key features will! This kaftan cleverly ties under your bust which makes for a dramatic and striking silhouette. Some kaftans can feel too frumpy with no definition but not this one! This is such a versatile garment that you can own and is incredibly comfortable on your skin.
Grace tie front dress
How about a more fitted fifties’ chic style to shine with if the 70s stunning kaftan isn’t your flower show go to? This is a firm favourite of our Bombshells, the beautifully cut Grace Tie Front Shirt Dress in Liberty Archive Lilac Jade Print.
This dress is streamline but with extra flare! The colour is perfect for this event and screams spring and summer! The colour is extremely flattering on all skin types and helps to enhance your natural features and hide away the naughty bits! The design of this dress includes ¾ turn back sleeves and a stand-up collar. The button through front with a concealed placket front is a gorgeous design feature added to this piece. Princess lines sculpt and visually raise your bust, whilst the beat tie front flatters and conceals your tummy area.
It is really is an amazing choice to wear to this flower event, containing all the elements of the show with some added Bombshell magic! This is a wardrobe essential as it is just so perfect for spring and summer, you are going to fall in love with it! Whether you match the dress with white espadrilles or little pumps, you’ll be so comfortable yet so effortlessly stylish.
Hampton Court Palace Garden Festival
There are so many great activities to get involved with at the Hampton Court Palace Garden Festival. From trade stands to talk and demos, one of the things that sets this flower show apart from the rest is the Festival of Roses. This is the place for you to step into the variety of scents and colours and find your new favourite type of rose!
The Festival is from 4th to the 5th July, so a perfect summer event to dress up for! How much more special will the event be if you show up wearing this ‘Limited Edition - Liberty Tana Lawn Xanthe Sunbeam 'Confident' Cap Sleeve Dress’ as you explore all that the show has to offer?
This event is different from all the rest, so we think your dress should be too! This dress will compliment your body shape perfectly, helping create an effortless silhouette. I designed this dress to enhance a smaller bust, but with clever fabric configuration this dress also tames a bigger bust! It’s rather clever indeed! The pattern is extremely unique, creating the flawless dress to wear for the flower show. The length of the dress is very elegant, it is just past the knee and measures 69cm from the waist to the hem, it truly is super flattering, yet extremely comfortable to walk distances in.
Blenheim Palace Flower Show
One of our favourite flower shows which opens later in June (24th to 26th), and who doesn’t love the beautiful gardens of Blenheim Palace to celebrate both home and garden! To celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, the NAFAS Floral Art Competition theme for 2022 is “Jewels in the Crown” and we can’t wait to see some of the exquisite floral designs!
What dress designs should you wear to complement Blenheim Palace? With a riot of colour, delicious fragrances and extraordinary and wonderful plants, let’s show you off amongst celebrities and horticulturists alike! Our summery tea dress would suit anyone mooching along the rose gardens or sipping iced lemonade in the tea rooms. I designed the “Grace Tie Front Shirt Dress in Liberty Capevista Print” with Bombshells in mind!
Larger busts and curvy women love this dress because it’s a Princess line cut, sculpted to raise the bust whilst the beat tie front flatters the tummy area and the pretty flow of the below the knee length is utterly flattering, whilst cool and comfortable. Pair this with white pumps and you are styled to go! No matter what flower show/s you are attending this year, take it as an opportunity to dress up and look the part! We have so many dresses available that would be perfect for your attendance at any of the flower shows, and to wear throughout spring and summer too! Timeless collections for your wardrobe.
