As the queen is celebrating 60 years of monarchy there’s cause for celebration up and down the country. With plenty of amazing events taking place we’ve chosen our key two, along with this we’ve put together the outfits you should be wearing!
The Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant.
On Sunday the 3rd of June over 1000 boats will take to the river Thames in preparation for Her Majesty the Queen to take part within the Jubilee Pageant. The event will take place from 2pm to 6pm, vessels of all types will be voyaging down river from Battersea Bridge to Tower Bridge. This will be one of the largest flotillas to ever be displayed on the river Thames. Don’t miss out on the gun salute just down River of London Bridge!
This will surely draw a large crowd so don’t be late!
The regality of this event means you don’t want to go too under dressed, we’d suggest some jeans and a light colored polo shirt finished with a regatta jacket (it’s bound to get chilly late evening by the river). You can even add a floral or spotted handkerchief if you want to show off!
If you want to keep up with the queen then head down to the Epsom Derby, she’ll be attending what’s classed as the greatest flat race in the world, winnings can top up to £1.5 million! We’ve been told tickets have been sold out for the Queens stand but you can still get in the Grandstand, Tattenham and Lonsdale enclosures.
It’s going to be fairly hot so wear light colour’s, avoid black for fear of drawing in the sun. The dress code is more relaxed than Ascot but at no cost should you wear any form of sportswear or ripped denim.
A great outfit for this would be some lightweight linen trousers, breathable cotton shirt and linen jacket it will keep you cool but still keep you looking the part, if it’s too hot the jacket can be removed and if it’s cold in the evenings you can just put it back on! It’s your choice on the tie but to stick with the true British theme we’ve selected a red and blue silk number.
If you’re going to one of the thousands of street parties in Britain then you may want to just add some patriotism to your outfit, we’ve got some excellent little accessories to do just this!

Through the ages they have gone through many a change and purpose, from flaunting your social class to wiping the snuff from your nose. In this day and age the pocket square has less of a practical meaning, becoming a significant style item in the last 5 years. They started life in China during the Chou dynasty although nothing was known of the pocket square until Richard II stopped people blowing their noses on their sleeve.
Just slipping a square into your top pocket can leave you looking very suave and sophisticated.
Choosing the right material is important but not crucial, it all depends on what look you want to go for. Cotton squares will have the more contemporary designs on and are the most popular; silk looks splendid when puff-folded in a breast pocket. Linen squares have a grainy texture and look great in the spring/summer season.
When it comes to selecting your square for your business suit consider the matter sensitivity, some people hold that it must be white, though blue and pastel colours are considered fine. Your square should not match your tie but merely contrast with it; it should complement the colour of the shirt.
The next challenge is deciding which fold looks the best with your suit. We have highlighted our three favourite folds.
The Puffed Fold
The bottom of the square is inserted into the pocket so that the puffed body is exposed with casual grace.
The Square-End Fold
Fold the square to fit the size of your pocket, insert and expose no more than 2 centimetres above the rim of the pocket.
The Multi-Point Fold
The number of points is your choice. Fold the square diagonally then back over its self, do this until you have achieved your required number of points then insert into the top pocket.
