Badminton Horse Trials: Accessories Perfection to match any outfit
With this year’s Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials just 2 weeks away, we wanted to bring you our pick of the accessories that we think will add the perfect finishing touches to any outfit, whether you’re trotting up in front of the judges or applauding from the sidelines.
Brand new for this season, we just had to include this gorgeous Triple Stirrup Beaded Bracelet from Pegasus Jewellery. With the three stirrup-shaped charms, representing the past, present and future, hanging from the elegant beaded bracelet, this is perfect for anyone wanting a pretty, delicate piece that showcases their love of all things equestrian, but in a way that is really wearable. The mixture of gold, rose gold and silver is not only flattering to all skin tones but also means that the bracelet will always ‘go’ with your other favourite jewellery – a definite bonus.
Another piece we couldn’t resist including from Pegasus Jewellery is this stunning Rose & Silver Snaffle Necklace. This elegant, simple design really shows how stylish equestrian-themed jewellery can be, with the sterling silver chain and snaffle bit complemented beautifully by the rose gold detailing on the D-rings. It’s something you’ll never want to take off!
A classic in the making, we love this London Spice Tote from FourH. The elegant design of this Harris Tweed and leather bag is perfect for lovers of the elegant country look, who want a bag that is ideal for carrying those everyday essentials in both town and country. Quality handbags are a rare breed, and this tote is beautifully finished with exception attention to detail, including a luxurious suede interior and a full zip across the top to keep all your bits and bobs safe.
Barley Twist Boutique
Add the perfect finishing touch to your hat with this stunning handmade shotgun cartridge and gamebird feather hat pin from the exciting country brand Barley Twist Boutique. Available in a wide variety of colours and feather designs, there’s something to suit every hat (and every person), and we love how these hatpins are more than capable of doubling up as eye-catching brooches – perfect for creating different looks across this year’s Badminton event!
Hayfield Country Crafts
Be stylishly prepared for whatever the weather throws at us this year at Badminton with this classically elegant Fedora from Hayfield Countryside Crafts. Available in a lovely variety of colours, these fedoras are a super finishing touch to any outfit, and work beautifully for so many occasions, from Badminton to beyond.
One thing is guaranteed at Badminton, and that is you’ll be doing a lot of walking! Deck shoes are a popular choice for a reason and we love these stunning pink ones from Orca Bay. Both practical and incredibly comfortable, these would be a wonderful way to add a pop of colour to your Badminton looks, whether you’re trotting up for the judges or wanting something comfortable and stylish for following your favourite riders around the cross country course.
Whatever the weather, ensure you’re perfectly accessorised from top to toe!
