With Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations taking place from the 2nd to the 5th June, it’s safe to say that British fashion is honouring Her Majesty's sixty year reign in style.

Both the designer world and the high street are creating magical pieces to commemorate the last six decades of Queen Elizabeth’s reign. One major fashion figure has designed a very special fashion capsule collection; Vivienne Westwood has created nine elegant dresses with that British heritage feel. The dresses include the British colours: royal red, bold blue, wondrous white, as well as smouldering grey, pretty pink and two of the dresses have subtle British flag designs. The dresses are luxuriant, and fit for the Queen herself.

With clean cut tailoring, endless sparkles, glistening floor length gowns and her signature pearls, Her Majesty always gets it just right. Subtlety is the key to Queen Elizabeth's style; as Britons, we should take a little piece of her elegance and introduce to into our everyday style. Of the Queen, Vogue gets it just right, “on public duty her guard is up, her clothes formal, her jewels dazzling. In private, she becomes the ordinary countrywoman she is.” She grew up in Scotland, surrounded by the green which means that she has stuck to her roots despite living in Buckingham Palace in the middle of the busiest city in Britain. Tweed pants and crisp blouses are the kinds of fashion that fills her leisure time, alongside her much loved ‘darlings- her dogs, and not forgetting the horses.

When it comes to formal occasions, not forgetting that wedding, watched by millions, of her grandson and new granddaughter in law, she was up to standard in a lemon dress. Designed by her personal assistant and head dresser, Angela Kelly, it was of course complete with a lemon hat, true to Her Majesty's nature. She was smart, sophisticated and she didn’t outshine the blushing bride, despite being our Sovereign. Stewart Parvin is the youngest of Her Majesty’s designers and started working for her in 2000. Exquisite embelleshments are his signature piece combined with silk and lace to provide that piece of royal fashion history that will live on after Her Majesty, through to Kate Middleton and further. For Queen Elizabeth’s jewels, Garrard, the oldest jeweller in the world is by appointment to Her Majesty with sapphire and diamond tiaras at £135,000. There is surely no other jeweller more expensive and exquisite by taste!

It’s safe to say that Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II is most endearingly a fashion inspiration we overlook every day. Young women turn to celebrities, actresses, singers, models, even bloggers for our fashion fix of inspiration: how we should add that rock t-shirt with that printed bodycon skirt, or those bright green leggings with those fluorescent orange heels. I know that if I want some glamour, diamond, and sophisticated fashion advice, I’ll turn to Her Maj, the Queen.

After praising Her Majesty’s fabulous fashion sense, I realised that £135,000 for a diamond headpiece is something I really cannot afford. With that in mind, I turn to the High Street and the funky Union Jack memorabilia to suffice my needs for the Diamond Jubilee celebration. The High Street is creating fashionable pieces at the right prices; look to Topshop for Union Jack accessories or boohoo.com for Union Jack knicker shorts (if you’re feeling brave), t-shirts, leggings, bags, jewellery. You name it, they have it and all on an ordinary budget. Add diamonte hair grips to accessorise any outfit with the Queen’s sparkle, and get that British flag waving for our country!

Long live the Queen!
