Garishly bright frocks, oversized fascinators plonked on top of heads and several layers of bad fake tan are the few things that come to mind when I think about Ladies day at Ascot. But this year, there were some really great outfits, with some side stepping from the norm of the satin dress and fascinator combo from Debenhams (yawn). With lovely ladies oozing glamour and sophistication in soft colour palettes, minimalist outfits and allowing the oh so important accessories to do the talking.
The perfect way to get into the St. Patrick’s Day spirit this year is with some Emerald green style. Emerald was seen all over the catwalks for 2013 so at some point this year you shall be donning it. Thankfully the ‘luck of the Irish’ shade suits almost every skin tone and hair colour, so forget the silly hat this year and indulge in a splash of the jewelled tone with an obligatory pint of Guinness in hand of course!
