Race Day: Fashions on the field

October 30, 2016

The biggest fashion event of the year is here and the style stakes are high.

If you’ve ever been to the races, you might be familiar with the set of traditions: dress to impress, soak up the sun and hydrate with champagne.

The aim of the game is to steal the show but there are many things to consider. Headwear, shoes and accessories are all important ingredients to the perfect outfit.

Here are two of my top looks for the Spring Races 2016!

Shoulders are a beautiful part of a woman’s body. This year, they are officially IN with plenty of bare shoulder looks for day and evening wear. Rock this look on race day and get the perfect spring silhouette.

Go traditional for Derby Day and make a bold statement with the monochrome colour palette. Play around with accessories, details and textures. Monochrome doesn’t have to mean monotone! Lace, sequins and elegant tailoring can all make for an unforgettable outfit.
