3 dresses to wear to the races

As far as the social calendar for 2018 goes, attending the races is definitely a highlight. In less than two weeks the Aintree Racecourse will host the Randox Health Grand National Festival which is the perfect excuse to bring out your finest attires and join the fashionable crowd of racegoers.

Because of the large number of people attending, the first thing you’ll want taken care of is finding an Aintree Races hospitality provider that caters to your wants and needs. This is crucial in shaping the entire experience as it is arranging transportation. Having these sorted out will give you peace of mind and plenty of time to prepare your outfits.

Dressing up according to a dress code can be rather exciting and although the rules aren’t as strict as they were in the past, smart is definitely the way to go. Now, I’ve done the legwork for you and found three beautiful dresses, perfect for the occasion.

1. the subtle print – this dress in a muted shade of green with a white botanical print is the ideal canvas for strong accessories. Add a huge flower-shaped head accessory and a precious looking waist belt and keep the rest of the outfit simple. Enjoy the luxurious feel of silk against your skin and focus on adding texture through the other items on display.

2. the monochrome look – black and white will always look modern, understated and effortlessly chic. Add a small, luxurious, embellished bag, cat eye sunglasses and a simple, yet dramatic headpiece. Keep the jewelry to a minimum; a pair of pearl earrings and a couple of small, dainty rings should do the trick.

3. the strong color - wearing a single color head to toe can translate into a powerful appearance. Make sure there’s a smooth transition from item to item and that the dress fits you like a glove. A wrong cut can make the whole look fall apart so expert tailoring is non-negotiable. Choose accessories made of fine fabrics, the kind that look a lot more expensive than they actually are. And last but definitely not least, if you go for red, don’t forget to match your lipstick; it will beautifully tie the whole look together.

Regardless of what you choose don’t forget that going to the races should be about having fun. Getting dressed up is part of the ritual and not something to stress out about.
