With the final weekend of the summer programme nearly upon us, you may be wondering what to wear to Glyndebourne Festival 2021. Whilst there is no official dress code, most guests take the opportunity to dress up. Glyndebourne Festival is the perfect excuse to treat yourself to some new formal wear or bring out your old favourites. The Glyndebourne website reads ‘We love to see formal or vintage attire or the height of contemporary fashion’ in the advice on what to wear.

Black tie is by far the most popular choice for gents, however a summer blazer and panama hat, or coloured jacket and floral bow tie would be just as at home. For ladies this is a great opportunity to make a statement, don a fabulous full length gown and gloves, sophisticated summer dress, or even trouser suit. Don’t forget your jacket or wrap for cooler days/evenings and lawn friendly sensible heels rather fine stilettos which may be prone to sinking.

We’ve put together a selection a jewellery ideas perfect for Glyndebourne, with some styling suggestions below. Whatever you choose, don’t be afraid to express yourself with your style!

Lapis Lazuli

Lapis Lazuli is one of our favourite gemstones. Its vivid blue is sure to add wow factor to any outfit. This beautiful waterfall coat, available from the Glyndebourne shop, would look stunning set of with one off our striking necklaces. Our favourite designs include this fabulous teardrop pendant on a torc, and our lapis tab necklace, as well as two different collar necklaces: 6mm and 12mm. The jacket is handmade in lightweight silk, and is also reversible for two different styles.
