STYLE ADVICE: Need a look for day at the races followed by Tom Jones concert

Posted on: May 12, 2014

QUESTION: Have organised a girls day at the Races which also includes Tom Jones concert and need some advice on what to wear.

ANSWER: That sounds like a very fun-filled and busy girls’ day that you have planned; if not a little tricky style-wise with the diversity of the day’s activities! As I’m sure you are aware, a day at the races is usually a very glamorous affair which can often have certain ‘rules’ regarding dress code. On the other hand, your concert requires something a little more comfortable and relaxed so you can enjoy the music and get up for a bit of a dance- something that may be difficult after a full day on your feet!

1. Banana Republic dress, £89.95: – A fit-and-flare or ‘skater’ dress is a great option for you as it will create a fab waistline by hugging you at your smallest point, and it skims over the bits you want to hide, like your love handles and thighs. This style is also great as it’s quite an easy one to transform from formal/evening to a more casual look. For the Tom Jones concert just switch heels for a cute pair of flats to give your feet a rest and allow for all the dancing. This piece from Banana Republic is fairly casual and can easily be dressed up or down. It may look simple, but add a few jewels, a pair of heels and a clutch bag and you will be race day ready! PS the colour will look amazing against your skin tone:


2. Oasis dress, £65: – Alternatively you could go for a more formal dress which you can dress down later. This piece from Oasis is amazing, and the belted waist (and colour) is perfect for you:


3. Johnny Loves Rosie clutch, £50: – A metallic clutch will look fab with either dress…we love this structured one which also has a shoulder strap, making it easier when you’re at the concert:


4. Coast sandals, £65: – We love these nude and gold sandals from Coast which will be great for weddings and evenings out afterwards. Again these will go with both dresses and will be perfect race day attire:


5. Zara ballet pumps, £49.99: – For the concert afterwards swap the heels for this pair of comfy flats from Zara (you may need a separate or bigger bag to hide them in). They’re a great option with the Banana Republic dress, however the Oasis piece may be better suited to a lovely pair of flat sandals:


6. Zara jacket £49.99 – A neutral cardi could be the best cover up option for you as it will create a great casual look after your race day, and would make a lovely spring time wardrobe staple too. Or you could go for one of the season’s great light tweed jackets like this chic piece. Dont forget to add some fab jewellery to your look for a super glam vibe. Jewelled earrings would be great with the lime dress, or choose a statement necklace if you wear the blue one. Ria x
