Being close to London it’s a safe bet that the latest fashion trends will be on show during the Summer Festival at Sandown Park Racecourse, including Ladies’ Day on 7th July and the Coral Eclipse on 8th July.

To ensure you fashionably stand out from the crowd and reduce the chance of seeing someone else in the same outfit, go for a couturier dress. Omar Mansoor’s navy choker neck dress from his SS17 collection fits the bill. Made of jersey crepe the mini dress is partly concealed in a flowing midi length overlay of embroidered lace. Order direct from Price £350.

If you decide to go high street, add a spicy touch to your racing outfit with Hobbs’ Carmen Frill dress in mustard yellow. Big or small, girly or sultry: Frills and Ruffles have flounced their way into the fashionista’s heart this season. Was £159 now £79.

Model has accessorised with:

Wide Obi belt in ochre suede. Price was £69 now £39.

Pimlico mini bag in ochre calf hair. Price was £149 now £55.

Zoe block heel sandal in navy, white and yellow will complement both dresses. Price was £149 now £119.


Whether you go couturier or high street, team with a ready-to-wear headpiece from an independent milliner, plus other unique accessories, to give your outfit that individual look. Laura Apsit Livens’ ‘Core’ navy and white saucer hat with fabric flower and one golden petal is the perfect match for both dresses. From Laura’s ‘Semi-Construct’ SS17 Collection. Price £720.

Vassi8’s Daisy Eyes circular leather bag adds a touch of sparkle with Swarovski crystals centred in the white leather daisies. Price £485.
