The recent Cheltenham Ladies Day has got us thinking about what we’d choose to wear for a day at the races - any excuse for a shopping spree! From over the top hair fascinators to daring colour combinations, sporting events give women a rare opportunity to break fashion rules and get away with them.
So, with The Royal Ascot just around the corner, there’s no time like the present to start planning our extravagant ensembles. Join us as we prepare to dress for the races.
Colour blocking is one of the more daring fashion trends out there so a day at the races is an opportune time to flaunt the look. Sorbet shaded pastels coexist to create a feminine, high-class ensemble which will turn heads for all the right reasons.
The peplum top will flatter curvy figures while the heeled court shoes elongate the figure adding a touch of glamour. Complement the shoes by adding a matching hair fascinator and bring the look full circle with our very own Fiorelli Harper Bag, perfect for storing those travel size beauty essentials to keep you looking tip top throughout the day.
Lady in Red
If you’re not one for clashing prints and garish colours, stay classy in a pitch-perfect red dress. Figure hugging with a plunging neckline for a spritz of va-va-voom, this look-at-me dress has it all. Add a signature floral cap to give the ensemble a risqué edge; it’s a statement accessory but one which will work well in the race day environment.
At every races' style parade you’ll find a selection of women who have taken bold dressing to the extreme. In fact, it’s not unusual to spota multi-coloured feather boa, larger than life hair fascinator and top to toe tweed all in one outfit. Give the more adventurous fashionistas a run for their money at the next race day with this striking outfit in limeade and coral.
Bold without looking overdone, bright without shocking the press, this demure pencil dress is oh-so covetable and perfectly matches the Fiorelli Dixie clutch. Soften the look up with a slick of mandarin lipstick and a coral fascinator.
