The First Date: A day at the races

By admin on June 17th, 2008 1 comment

Royal Ascot is back in full swing this week and if you’re lucky enough to be whisked away to such a prestigious event by your prospective new beau then you’ll want to dress to impress. Everyone knows that the ladies’ fashion of the races is big business, so I’ve put together an outfit that’s sophisticated, appropriate and still flattering.

The satin dress immediately gives an air of luxury to your outfit, with the impression that it’s much more expensive than the true price! I’ve teamed it with the obligatory headpiece in the form of this gorgeous cocktail fascinator. The bright colours liven up the outfit, while the shape is easy to wear and not too over the top.

Teaming the outfit with a few subtle, light gold accessories gives a fresh, summery look that’s formal enough to fit in, yet still casual enough to feel comfortable for daywear.

Product Details:
Jasper Conran satin dress, £60
Pip Hackett Cocktail headpiece, £40
Red Herring satin corsage peep toes, £30
Debut soft bow clutch, £5.40
Pearl and crystal drop earrings, £12
