STYLE ADVICE: Looking for versatile dress and outfit for autumn races?

Posted on: October 20, 2014

QUESTION: I have been invited to New Market for the races on Friday as a guest of my husband’s clients. Summer racing I would dress like a smart wedding, but haven’t a clue how to manage autumn races. Could go shopping this afternoon and would spend up to £200 if it was something I could wear for work / occasions afterwards.

ANSWER: Thanks for your request and your pic! With that in mind here is a look we hope you will love.

1. Michael Michael Kors dress £165:  This red (one of your favourite colours) dress also comes in black or in a blue and white print. Just so you know. It really is a great flattering 24/7 piece and has been styled on all those fabulously versatile Issa dresses. The soft draping skirt will skim over your tummy area and the self tie will smooth over the waist line. You can style this for work with a waterfall cardigan and take it to an occasion with gold strappy sandals and a little gold or black clutch. It will also work a dream for a casual look with flat boots and a faux-fur gilet (H&M has some great inexpensive ones).

2. Mango jacket £39.99: The weather is threatening to warm up this weekend so one of the season’s must-have bouclé jackets would look great with this – and perfect with jeans a t-shirt and ankle boost afterwards:

3. H&M felt hat £14.99: You could go the full-on occasion headpiece route or snap up one of the season’s must-have wide-brimmed hats for something a little bit different:

4. Mango bag £24.99:  We love a great clutch. It’s the perfect way to complete this outfit but also a must-have wardrobe accessory for the upcoming party season. You don’t have to spend a lot of money on an evening bag as the high street has some fabulous numbers. This piece could double up for a smart-casula day look. I hope this has given you some style inspiration. Have a great day at the races. Natalie x
