Hello! It’s Sunday, and this post needs to go up today. Been procrastinating all day!
Have you considered a Derby themed party/kitty? Ever? Say ‘Get Set Go’ to Derby Fashion! Elegant, modest, relaxed, chic and glamorous! Well, the what-to-wear to the Spring/Autumn Racing Carnival is no big race. Well almost! As I try and enlist a few headers to keep in mind, down below.
The Racing Carnival, keeping up with the tradition, is about adhering to the dress code. Dress sophisticated, ladylike and prim; keeping the season in mind. Not to miss the headwear; hats or my all-time-favourite fascinators. Drooling!!! Soon going to inundate my INSTA feed with checkout-the-fascinator-on-me posts. Follow me here , if you aren’t already. They are believed to bring in Good Luck, which explains it all.
ATTIRE: Sundress, simple cocktail dress, bold separates, formals or the evergreen classics. No sequins or metallics, after all, it’s a day affair. Nothing too revealing or tight. Below the knee hemline is just the right length.
COLOURS/PATTERNS: Now colours or prints are something you can obviously have fun with. Tropical, print on print, pastels, classics-navy, black or white is your safe bet.
ACCESSORIES: Rule is, simple silhouettes and low on accessories except for, you guessed it right, the dramatic headwear.
FOOTWEAR: Fashionable yet comfy. Preferably block heels, for all the walking on the grass beneath. Alternatively, carry an extra pair. Peep-toes, wedges for the spring, closed counterparts for the Autumn Carnival.
MAKEUP: Makeup that stays put all day. Don’t forget the SPF and the very essential, primer.
MY OUTFIT INTERPRETATION: I am wearing a CHIC A LABEL ‘Guns N Roses Jumpsuit.’ The floral jumpsuit spells luxury and comfy. The material is stretchable and fits snugly at the right places. I gave the grandiose hat a miss. Wore a dainty floral fascinator and love how the net overlaps my profile. Also donning a LOUIS VUITTON SOBE CLUTCH, STEVE MADDEN footwear, and JUST CAVALLI gold watch.
Don’t forget to share pictures of your next ‘At the Races Kitty’, y’all. You may DM me on INSTA. Happy Racing!
