Try racy red for Derby Day
Q I have a last-minute invitation to the Irish Derby Day this Sunday in the Curragh, and I haven't a clue what to wear! Any suggestions?
AThis tends to be the most fashion-forward event of the season's racing calendar, so you can go bold with your look.
Choose a hat by an Irish milliner, such as Edel Staunton who has just completed a new collection of headpieces for A/W 12. I really love her headpiece featuring a bold fabric rose.
Coordinate your look with a head-turning scarlet dress. Arnotts have recently introduced CK Calvin Klein to their fashion floor; the red shift dress from the collection is particularly chic with a modern deconstructed cut.
For something retro, try Cath Kidson's flattering red tea-dress. New in store this week at Dunnes are these suede-look red peep-toe shoes which will finish off your look perfectly!
