How To Celebrate The King’s Coronation


King Charles III's Coronation is the next big date for the nation’s diary, promising a time of celebration and reflection for the entire country. It’s a historically significant event that’ll provide a unique opportunity for you to involve yourself with all the associated festivities. As such, there’s really no better time than now to consider what activities and events you'll be participating in and, perhaps most importantly, how you intend to kit yourself out for said celebrations.

For our featured blog post, we’re exploring some of the best ways to celebrate (and dress for) the King's coronation.

Host a BBQ or garden party

Surely one of the most popular ways to celebrate the King’s coronation this bank holiday weekend will be with a BBQ or garden party. It’s a great opportunity to deck the garden out with festive bunting, balloons and streamers and invite friends and family over for a celebratory soirée. You’ll certainly want to make sure you stock up on spritzers and hors d'oeuvre to keep your guests satisfied throughout the day!

For your personal style kit out, opt for a casual yet refined look for effortless elegance. Start with a pair of tailored chino shorts and team with a classic polo shirt in a complementary hue for a look that exudes timeless contemporary style. Accessorise with some sleek leather loafers and a pair of sunglasses to really dial up the dynamism of your chosen ensemble.

Hit up a bar or restaurant

If hitting the town in celebration is more your speed, then there are an abundance of bars and restaurants across the country that will be hosting special events for the coronation. From rooftop bars to Michelin-starred restaurants, there's surely something for everyone to enjoy. Why not dress up in your finest attire and head out for a night of dining and dancing? (Just make sure to book your tables and tickets in advance, as many venues are likely to be fully booked for the occasion!) When you arrive, raise a toast and enjoy the festive atmosphere…

In terms of your wardrobe choices, modern sophistication (with just a side order of expressive flair) is our order of the day. Go for a sharp and chic teddy jacket and layer it with a colourful shirt or tee for some pop. We’ve chosen to keep our full look smooth and suave with black Saint Laurent jeans and a pair of monochrome Valentino Garavani trainers.

Attend a street party or parade

For those who really want to get in on the patriotic action, attending one of the many street parties or parades is a great way to celebrate the coronation. The King’s royal procession will naturally draw the biggest crowds and most jubilant celebrations, but similar events are likely to be held in major cities and towns across the country, so we recommend checking local listings to find out what's happening in your area.

If, like us, you’re looking for something a little more adventurous than the overplayed union jacket and pants combo for your dress options, how about a colourful casual look with a sprinkling of luxury streetwear attitude to shake things up? We’ve gone bold and bright with a vibrant purple Stone Island windbreaker that’s matched in energy by Off-White’s neon-accented Out of Office sneakers for a playful ensemble that stays true to both the occasion and your stylistic proclivities.

Watch the events unfold from home

If you prefer a more relaxed approach to celebrating the coronation, why not just take in the fabulous sights and sounds of the ceremony from the comfort of your own home? Prepare an assortment of your favourite snacks and drinks and enjoy the broadcast with your inner circle of family and friends. You can even decorate your abode with bunting and balloons to recreate the Westminster atmosphere in your own living room!

Just because you're not stepping out onto the West End streets, doesn’t mean you can’t put your best (fashion) foot forward. Comfort is, as always, a priority for effective at-home styling, so we’ve styled our look around Nahmias’ snug but chic crochet hoodie. Off-White’s futuristic-looking Meteor sandals round out the outfit and help maintain that crucial balancing of function and fashion that all great luxury loungewear looks are built upon.
