I wanted to create a stylish, feminine look. This season I’m loving blush tones and shades of gold. I’ve seen racegoers wearing plenty of playful prints. As always there have been traditional styles such as florals and black and white. Pastel tones are also a massive trend this season.
My top style tips are: 1. Find your clothes first. It is much easier to match your headpiece and accessories once you know what you’re wearing. 2. Be creative: Don’t be afraid to mix colour with colour, for example, if your dress is printed red, blue and white; you could wear red shoes with a blue bag. 3. Nude shoes: Nude shoes are a lifesaver, especially if you can’t find the exact colour to match your outfit.
