Races style dilemma

With the St Ledger festival in 10 days , I am quickly running out of time to purchase the perfect races outfit. Yes, I do have dresses I could wear but there is nothing like stepping out in a brand new dress and well put together accessories to make your day more special.

I am not a huge fan of the big crazy hats and little feather fascinators , so simplicity and elegance are really what I look for in my outfit.

After scouring www.theoutnet.com for some designer bargains I have narrowed my chooses down to a few and would like you to help me with my choice. So here goes. Firstly I loved this simple shape and gorgeous fabric of this Zebra print dress by Badgley Mishka. I think this is a really flattering shape for me

I have got some black Louboutins with a glittery finish that would look great with this and Alexander McQueen knuckle duster clutch.

Next is this beautiful 3.1 Phillip Lim Shift dress, it just looks so feminine and interesting I especially love the detail on the cuffs with the leather buckles and the transparent chiffon on the sleeves and to its femininity.

This is possibly my favourite but as always it depends on how it fits and if it is long enough. I would keep the accessories simple again to make the dress the main focus.

Next up is a fun and simple Love Moschino dress. As a massive monochrome fan, I love the simplicity yet unusual style of this dress

I would keep this simple with black strappy shoes and maybe a pop of colour with a red clutch bag

You will be getting a theme with my colour choices! So this is a beautiful dress by Mikael Aghal which on close inspection of the material looks very similar to a Herve Ledger dress unlike the body con I prefer this shape for me personally and I think it would look great for the races.

I would keep shoes and bag black for sure and a lick of bright red lipstick.

The final option is the most expensive but very beautiful, I just can’t see from the picture if it would be a little old-fashioned for me.


Obviously again black accessories , maybe red lippy and red clutch.

So there you have it my short list for a new races dress. Which one do you prefer?

I really need your help guys so all comments welcome .

Take care
