Jeeves Loves: The Latest Seasonal Trends and Stand Out Apparel

At Jeeves, we love to keep our finger on the latest fashion trends, especially when it comes to seasonal wardrobe attire and stand out garments. February is known for being the month of lovers, but it’s also a notable month for fashion lovers with the awards season in full swing. Stand out ceremonies such as the Grammy’s take place in Los Angeles, and the BAFTA’s and the Brit Awards here in London.

Dressing for Diamond Day

Royal Ascot might be over for another year but next on the list at Ascot sees one of the biggest races of its year. Colloquially known for many years as 'Diamond Day', the King George VI Weekend is one of flat racing’s most prestigious race meetings. Combining world-class flat racing with high fashion, within a quintessential English garden party setting - the King George VI Weekend provides a relaxed, intimate and fun-filled few days.

Celebrating high summer and commemorating The Queen’s late parents, starting on the Friday is the voguish way to initiate the weekend – round up your family and friends and enjoy the champagne, cocktail bars, the range of entertainment and generally soak up the atmosphere during one of Ascot's most-loved racing weekends.

The event is more relaxed than Royal Ascot, but maintains the heritage and prestige. The King George VI Weekend still requires a smart dress code: Premier Admission to King George Day requires that ladies dress as though for a smart occasion and are encouraged to wear a head piece; gentlemen are required to wear a jacket with a collared shirt and tie and it goes without saying that trainers are not allowed. The dress code extends to children 17 and under, however very young children are exempt.

The event welcomes well-dressed race-goers to a traditional English garden party setting. So, if you’re thinking of attending the King George VI Weekend, we at Jeeves suggest (weather permitting) elegant summer dresses in pastels, whites and creams for the ladies, and a three-piece tailored suit with top hat with contrasting shirt and tie and subtle accessories for gentlemen. For the more adventurous, fashion boundaries can be pushed with jumpsuits for ladies and short suits for men.

We wish all our customers a fabulous and dramatic weekend at the King George VI races – and as always, should any sartorial dramas come to pass, blot the stain or fix with a safety pin and then forget about it, enjoy your day and trust Jeeves sort out the problem after the event.
