EDITOR’S CHOICE 1 Celebrity styling

TV pre­sen­ter Holly Wil­loughby caused a stir re­cently when she wore this Ted Baker Gem Gar­den dress on This Morn­ing and it’s my per­fect choice for race day. An ideal length and printed with an ex­quis­ite flo­ral and jewel print – pos­si­bly one of the most sen­sa­tional gar­ments I’ve seen this sea­son. Walk­ing through Jar­rold’s store, it im­me­di­ately took my eye as be­ing a dress that will see you through a day at the races, summer wed­ding guest cou­ture and a ro­man­tic evening out. The per­fect ‘in­vest­ment’ dress, keep it safely at the back of the wardrobe through the win­ter, be­cause I can guar­an­tee it will make a reap­pear­ance in spring 2018. Ted Baker Layli Gem Gar­dens body­con dress Sizes: 6-16 Price: £170 All from: Jar­rold, Lon­don Street, Nor­wich, NR2 1JF; 01603 660661; www.jar­rold.co.uk

Bring your out­fit into full bloom and pair up with the Eme­lyn cross-body bag, beau­ti­fully de­signed with Ted Baker’s Gem Gar­dens print, this com­pact piece can be styled on the shoul­der or used as a clutch for ver­sa­tile style that ex­udes el­e­gance. Ted Baker Eme­lyn Gem Gar­dens Cross Body Bag Price: £70

This won­der­ful fas­ci­na­tor has echoes of Hol­ly­wood glam­our from a by­gone era. Imag­ine Sun­set Boule­vard and old-time movie stars – this is the type of piece you can see the stars of yes­ter­year wear­ing. A large disc of crin em­bel­lished with swirls, rib­bons and del­i­cate feath­ers – ab­so­lutely per­fect styling for the dress, es­pe­cially if you choose the del­i­cate shade of silver. J Bees Millinery Fas­ci­na­tor – style JB584 Price: £ 69

2 Jump to it!

I was sur­prised when Royal As­cot’s or­gan­is­ers re­leased their style guide for this year’s race­go­ers, and de­spite the for­mal dress code, jump­suits are to be per­mit­ted into the Royal En­clo­sure. Al­low­ing the hum­ble jump­suit into the event’s most elite area is a sig­nif­i­cant leap, and Michael Kors has the per­fect de­sign for you to test the trend at Fak­en­ham Races. This sleeve­less wrap-front jump­suit ticks all the style boxes and is ideal if you want to dress in a more re­laxed style, but

re­main el­e­gant. Team it up with a pair of wedges and a larger hat to give the en­sem­ble a more St Tropez feel or the fas­ci­na­tor for a more struc­tured edge. Michael Kors wrapfront jump­suit Sizes: XS to XL Price: £175 All from: Jar­rold, as be­fore.

This glam­orous navy and white hat in­spired by the lakes of Italy is from Pia Rossini and has a sense of ef­fort­less style. Since 1999, Pia Rossini has been on a mis­sion to turn sim­ple de­signs into some­thing truly stun­ning, en­sur­ing that you al­ways look and feel fab­u­lous when wear­ing them. Pia Rossini hat Price: £19.50

3 Flo­ral fi­nesse

This fit­ted shift dress fea­tures a pretty flo­ral print, and is fin­ished with a seamed waist and con­cealed back fas­ten­ing. Wear with a fit­ted jacket or pash­mina for a great race­day look. Phase Eight Jes­sica flo­ral dress Price: £110 All from: Jar­rold

A chic, col­lar­less cropped knit­ted jacket fea­tur­ing an open front and three­quar­ter sleeves, smart and struc­tured with pleats at the shoul­der for a clean, boxy fit. Ideal for lay­er­ing over the Jes­sica flo­ral dress or team­ing up with Capri pants on a summer day at the beach. Phase Eight Salma Knit jacket Price: £ 69

4 The el­e­gance of grey

Opt for un­der­stated el­e­gance at spe­cial oc­ca­sions with the scal­lop lay­ered lace dress from Jac­ques Vert. A sleeve­less shift style that falls to the knee, this dress fea­tures a round neck­line with key­hole de­tail at the nape and soft scal­lop lay­ers over the del­i­cate lace bodice. With a

vent to the back al­low­ing for ease of move­ment, team up with strapheeled san­dals and an en­ve­lope clutch for a pol­ished sil­hou­ette. Jac­ques Vert scal­lop lay­ered lace dress Price: £169 All from: Jar­rold

Fin­ish your look stylishly with this gor­geous oc­ca­sion over­coat. Made from a beau­ti­ful tex­tured fab­ric, this coat is de­signed to tie in your oc­ca­sion look. Per­son­ally, as the look is quite un­der­stated, I would add a state­ment brooch from your jew­ellery box, in keep­ing with the rac­ing theme. Jar­rold of­fers some fab­u­lous race­day-themed accessories – it’s all in the de­tail! Jac­ques Vert tex­tured oc­ca­sion over­coat Price: £169

Hats off to this gor­geous head­piece - the ic­ing on the cake, this hat is de­signed to com­ple­ment. Jac­ques Vert feather flower hat Price: £119
