It’s 60 years to the day, today, since the Queen launched the Royal Yacht Britannia, which is now permanently moored right next to us at Ocean Terminal. The Royal Yacht has a whole host of Anniversary celebrations going on – you can check the out at this link.
So, with that in mind, and the fact that the Queen is 86 this coming Saturday, we’ve come over all patriotic, and have been looking for the perfect red, white and blue outfit to wear!
We think this polka dot dress, red, white and blue bag, and fabulous stacked deck shoes are just the ticket for a royal day out on a yacht, don’t you? And if you want to keep it more casual, blue trousers, with a red and white striped top will look smart.
WHERE TO BUY (clockwise, from top left) POLKA DOT DRESS, £29, TOP SHOP, BOW DETAIL BAG, £29 RED HERRING @ DEBENHAMS, BLUE JEANS, £29.50, WALLIS, RED AND WHITE STRIPED TOP, £35, WHITE STUFF, CONVERSE ALL STAR EVA PLATFORMS, £55, SCHUH.
We wonder what the Queen would make of the current trend for ‘disco pants’?! We don’t think the Duchess of Cambridge will have a pair in her wardrobe, but in bold red, they’re certainly going to get you as noticed as royalty! Mix them up with blue and white – high wedge heels, pretty jewellery, cute shades, and a peplum top, perhaps, for a royally good night out?
WHERE TO BUY (clockwise, from top left): BLUE PEPLUM TOP, £8.99, NEW LOOK, WHITE SUNGLASSES, £8, DOROTHY PERKINS, BLUE AND WHITE WEDGE SANDALS, £24.99, RED PARISIAN RED HIGH SHINE ‘DISCO PANTS’ TROUSERS, £22.99, BOTH NEW LOOK, FLORAL DETAIL BAG, £30, FAT FACE, BLUE CHANDELIER EARRINGS, £8.50, WALLIS.
If it’s a more ladylike, retro, royal look you are after, try a simple dress or skirt, with a nod to the 1950s, with a pretty clutch bag, and some subtle heels.

We wonder how much jumping into the sea from the Royal Yacht Britannia went on, over the years?! Plenty of sunbathing on deck perhaps. And one would need a bikini, or a swimsuit for that, wouldn’t one? And in red, white and blue, or a combination of, please!
