While the RHS Chelsea Flower Show always encourages elegant attire, guests were particularly well-dressed for the occasion. Ladies welcomed the sunshine and embraced summer style. Subtle floral touches were evident in many outfits, with rose prints and palm motifs a popular choice. Chiffon skirts and sophisticated bodycon dresses were paired with sensible footwear; wedges and flats were most commonly worn.
