Races season has officially begun! As soon as the end of March arrives, girls everywhere get excited for the most style savvy events of the year, in particular, Ladies Day at the Grand National! I have attended a number of times over the years, with one year being lucky enough to be interviewed by Tony Livesely on BBC North West Today & Tonight about my fashion views.
When it comes to planning what to wear for the event, it can be a difficult task! There are always so many well dress ladies at the races, so it can be stressful picking an outfit to really give you the wow factor! My advice is to usually opt for a dress – it’s a dressy affair and a gorgeous, flattering dress is usually the standard dress code for the girls. Fascinators are also a lovely acessory to invest in to give your hair that added glamorous touch, and of course, statement jewellery! And did I mention a pretty clutch bag, and some staggering heels?…. Maybe it’s best to show you some of my favourite looks, and the look I have created myself for what I would recommend someone where!
If I was to go to the Grand National this year, I would wear the following outfit I have put together using a new dress from French Connection, a clutch bag from Next, Shoes from Shoedazzle and earrings from Mood by Jon Richard!
