What can I wear to Chester Races for Ladies’ Day?

Posted on: March 21, 2012

QUESTION: I am going to Chester Races For Ladies’ Day and I am stuck on what sort of dress to wear that would most suite me .

ANSWER: How exciting – Chester races! It will be a fun and fashionably glamorous day out for you. You’ll want to look fabulous. You have a gorgeous figure and if you look at your Dressipi Fashion Fingerprint you will see that it is all about using clothes to inject a bit of curve into your lovely silhouette. With that in mind here is an idea for an outfit I hope that you will like.

1. Lipsy purple dress £45 : This dress is in one of your favourite colours – a glorious purple. Very striking! The fit-and-flare style will inject a bit of curve into your already lovely shape. It’s all about creating balanced looking proportions. The fitted top sculpts your slender torso and the full skirt and skinny belt create the illusion of a defined waist….and it also draws attention to your long legs. The cap sleeves balance out the full skirt. This is the type of dress you can wear in the summer with coloured flat sandals for a dressed down look, or with a cool wedge and cropped denim jacket for a weekend look.

2. Mango gold cuff, £14.99:  It’s time to add a bit of hardware to the outfit. Style this with one of the season’s must-have oversized gold cuffs like this textured piece from Mango.

3. Dorothy Perkins colour block heels £40: Show of your long legs with these stylish two-tone colour block sandals. Great with a pair of skinny jeans, soft jersey t-shirt and sharp tailored blazer for a Friday night.

4. Mango red quilt bag, £27.99 : Use your bag to introduce another bright colour to your outfit. This vibrant red is a hot contrast to the deep purple of your dress and it will really make the colour stand out. The gold chain complements the cuff. What’s more – you’ll need somewhere ultra-chic and fashionable to store your winnings!

5. Star by Julien Macdonald hair clip £12 : You could wear a statement hat – it’s entirely up to you. Alternatively for that final fashionable touch, why not add this simple but cool oversized flower hair piece from the Star by Julien Macdonald range at Debenhams. The subtle neutral shade adds a lovely balance to the overall colour way of your outfit. But, you could just as easily go for a burst of red or purple. I would, however, advise you not to match shoes-handbag-headpiece in the exact same shade. If you are going to go for one colour, break it up a bit with varied tones of the same shade.

I hope that this has inspired you! Have a fantastic time at the races and enjoy your day out.

As an Annual Member at Chester I can confirm that Ladies Day is a very dressy occasion.
