Gorgeous fashion blogger Charlotte from Styling Out The School Run gives us some much needed Race Day fashion inspo....check out her style guide
What could be better than getting dressed up in a gorgeous outfit, popping on a hat and spending the day coiffing champagne with friends?
Of course I’m talking about Ladies Days at the horse racing which I have been lucky enough to attend numerous times. Due to this I know that it can be difficult to find the perfect outfit especially when there is so much competition to stand out from the crowd. My top tip is to just ‘do you’ and try not to buy into the competitive big hat, outrageous costume antics and instead try to look stylish and classic.
With that said I have picked five outfits that I believe will suit most people. Plus, I have shown you which Perfection Secrets items will help you create a flawless finish and won’t leave you gambling on your look!!
So, saddle up and get ready to do some shopping…
Full Skirt, Full Wow Factor
This stunning full, layered skirt and top combination definitely has the ‘wow’ factor. Due to the muted tones and jacquard patterning the outfit feels luxurious and feminine. This look is the perfect alternative to wearing a dress and the great thing about a combination like this one is that you will have more chance to wear the items again separately or together.
As the top is sheer I wore a lace bra underneath so as not to detract from the look. I decided to use the Perfection Secrets Silicone Nipple Covers for reliable coverage. The covers come in a variety of shades and sizes and cost £6.00
You cannot go wrong with a Little Black Dress and this one from Jacques Vert is simply beautiful. The black lace with nude lining draws the eye to all of the right places. It has a ribbon waist tie that cinches you and the front and back are cut symmetrically into a ‘V’ to make the dress just the right amount of revealing!
There is nothing worse than wearing a beautiful low back dress or top and having a thick bra strap sticking out. To avoid this use the Perfection Secrets Low Back Converter which simply attaches to your own bra clasps and lowers the back strap, simple and flawless! The straps come in Nude, White and Black and retail at £6.00.
Fun, Flirty & Feminine
Be sure to stand out from the crowd in this Yellow Jacquard Dress from Next. Not only is the dress the ‘It’ colour of the season but the cut of it really celebrates a woman’s figure. This dress puts me in a fun,girly mood which is the perfect feeling for Ladies Day.
Due to the slightly low cut neckline on this gorgeous dress I wanted to give myself a little extra Va Va Voom! So, I immediately reached for the Perfection Secrets Cleavage Boosters to enhance my natural shape. Simply slip them inside the cup of your bra and enjoy a little extra lift. The cleavage boosters are reusable and retail at £16.00.
Make me Blush
The contrast of the blush colour of this beautiful dress against the black ribbon tie screams of ballerina femininity. It is such a pretty and girly dress that I couldn’t help but twirl around in it! The dress is easy to wear and accessorise with as it is a gorgeous shade.
Like a lot of women I can feel uncomfortable not wearing a bra underneath certain items of clothing. Due to the thin straps on the beautiful, blush dress I decided to wear a strapless bra and attach the ‘invisible’ bra straps from the Perfection Secrets Secret Straps. These straps allow you the support of a bra without thick bra straps ruining a delicate outfit. The Secret Straps set is a must have and costs just £6.00.
The Cold Shoulder
If you are searching for something less girly and a little more womanly, look no further than this stunning Navy Lace Dress. It is fitted throughout to show off your silhouette and sits just below the knee. The one shoulder detail gives it that extra fashion flare plus it costs only £25.00 so you can treat yourself to a really fabulous hat!!
To prevent the dress slipping off at the shoulder I used the amazing Perfection Secrets Fashion Tape to hold it in place. The Fashion Tape comes in a pack of 20 and is super long lasting. Head over to the shop now and bag yours now for only £4.00.
I hope that this has given you some great outfit inspiration for a day at The Races and remember no matter what you choose to wear have a great time and enjoy every moment of it.
