Whatever the weather, style is almost as important as the races when it comes to Down Royal Ladies Day. From eccentric hats to glamorous fascinators and kitten heels, we see many show-stopping outfits compete for Best Dressed Lady every year.
If this is your first Ladies Day or if you’re looking for some new ideas on what to wear, we have 6 simple and affordable beauty and style tips to help you look your best for Down Royal Ladies Day 2019.
When preparing for the races, you’ll need to prepare yourself (and your hair) for a long day. You’ll need to have some good quality hairspray to ensure your style stays in place. We recommend Schwarzkopf’s Professional Silhouette Super Hold Hairspray for an all-day style.
Elegant and comfortable shoes
High fashion doesn’t have to mean high heels. Again, it’s going to be a long day! Don’t let painful shoes ruin the fun. Make sure your feet aren’t feeling the pinch while you’re sipping champagne by sporting comfortable, yet stylish, low heel shoes such as these elegant sling backs below.
Sophisticated yet spacious clutches
No outfit would be complete without a bag. For Down Royal Ladies Day, most opt for a stylish clutch. We recommend this Navy Half Moon Clutch so you can look fashionable without compromising on space to carry your must-haves.
A voluminous updo
Great updos are synonymous with Down Royal Ladies Day. But, if you don’t have the time or the hair-length to achieve your dream style, clip-on ponytails are your answer to your 2019 Race Day style! Check out Dream Goddess Fairytales ‘INDIA’ clip-on ponytail below, available in a range of colours.
For something a little looser than the usual tight bun, waves can be a great choice for Down Royal Ladies Day. GHD Gold Max styling tongs aren’t just for straightening – they’re great for helping you achieve the ultimate loose wave too!
And of course, the fascinator
While they aren’t compulsory, it wouldn’t be Ladies Day without a show-stopping Fascinator! This hair piece is the true and timeless showstopper of the whole event. Franklins, hair and beauty specialists, offer a wide range of fascinators to fit your outfit.
