Dear Stylist

My friends and I are off to Ain­tree soon for Ladies Day and I haven’t a thing to wear. How do I make a state­ment when ev­ery­one will be dressed to im­press?

The rac­ing sea­son is a huge part of the so­cial cal­en­dar, but it can be in­tim­i­dat­ing when the pad­dock is filled with well-dressed peo­ple. Add the un­pre­dictable weather into the mix and it’s enough to make a grown woman cry.

Dress codes are stan­dard at race meets now so check be­fore you start your search for the per­fect out­fit. This midi-length dress with sleeves from Rok­sanda will check the weather box as well as meet dress codes. The flared-cuff sleeves en­sure it is fash­ion for­ward, and there is an un­ex­pected flash of pink at the back of the dress which is a wel­come de­tail.

You never know when the wind will blow in and the grey clouds will un­leash a tor­rent of rain, so a glam­orous cover-up is prob­a­bly a good idea for this time of year too. This for­mal coat from Gucci with mil­i­tary de­tail­ing is per­fect for the oc­ca­sion. The sharp sil­hou­ette is punc­tu­ated by gold cuff trim and but­tons. The ap­pliquéd collar will cer­tainly make you feel like the queen bee!

It wouldn’t be the races with­out a hat. Your hat does not need to per­fectly match but com­ple­ment your out­fit. Have a good try on and see what styles suit your face shape. The Wind­sor black veiled beret by Emily Lon­don is a good place to start. A beret suits most face shapes – just keep it jaunty and fun.
