Cheltenham, Aintree, Leopardstown and Punchestown all have early race meetings every year. They fall on the cusp of Spring so aren’t quite warm enough for bare legs (although sometimes we can be lucky) and not cold enough for thick tights.
Following the style at these race meetings online can give great inspiration on the do’s and don’ts for weather appropriate attire I have put together some style ideas for the colder race meeting and will follow it up with some ideas for spring summer racing fashion.
Hope you like the looks!
Recently at the wedding of my good friend Emma i decided to go for some pink! I adore the colour so had a wool peplum top made to go with my magenta wool Edel Ramberg Designs hat.
To top off the wool smartie hat i wanted something statement so used an extra long magenta quill feather which curved into a stunning point on my head. The hat was so comfortable to wear and brought the outfit together nicely for a winter wedding.
I wore my magenta hat with a magenta wool peplum top by Tina Griffin, black mesh tutu from Asos, Jimmy Choo shoes and a velvet Mulberry postman bag.
No chance of blending in with a feather that big on your head!
The Hennessy Gold Cup 2015
Last weekends racing style at The Hennessy Gold Cup in association with The Design Centre was just delicious!
I went along with my friend Paula to meet up with a few others and take in the sunshine, horse racing and fashion. It was one of the best meetings I had been too in Leopardstown in the style stakes. Furs, wools and beautiful hats adorned many a lady at the event.
I wore a black straw weave mini pillbox hat with silk spotted veiling which was so light and delicate, accessorised with my new favourite Tina Griffin tulle skirt, Miss Selfridge peplum jacket, Paula Rowan gloves, Mulberry Bag and Jimmy Choos while Paula’s hat was a mowhawk of dyed green duck quills and pheasant feathers which she complemented with a fitted forest green dress, Tina Griffin cape, Mulberry Bag and stunning tonal green fur.
The Hennessy Gold Cup is the kick start to the best dressed lady competitions each year and I was delighted to see lots of ladys in their Edel Ramberg Design hats on the day.
Here is a picture of Paula and I in our ERD hats at The Hennessy Gold Cup, squinting in the sunshine, not a bad complaint!
