The Festival at Cheltenham Racecourse is this week, and Ladies Day is always the most exciting part for me because of the fashion. This year they are holding a fantastic competition #colourmemarch to bring a rainbow of colours to the races. All you need to do is go to The Festival website and share a bright outfit you would wear to Ladies Day and you could win some amazing prizes – including £2000 worth of diamonds!
So as I am feeling lucky, I have decided to put my outfit of choice forward. I am a huge fan of colour and most of my outfits contain a pop of colour, whether it is just the handbag, or the whole outfit. But seeing as #colourmemarch is all about being bright and bold, I have gone for a splash of orange with complementary sky blue.
The dress is from Miss Selfridge and is such a beautiful shade of orange I think it would look amazing on holiday with a tan. I really like the sweetheart neckline and the cutout details. I have chosen to pair it with some pretty New Look heels. The chunky heels will stop you from sinking into the grass and the platform will make them a bit comfier as it is always a long day of standing at the races,
As for accessories, a pop of bright blue nail varnish would tie the look together and keep everything super bright and a matching fascinator is a must. The necklace needs to be simple because the rest of the outfit is very bold, so a simple gold chain will work well with the orange tones and also sit nicely with the sweetheart neckline.
