Here are some tips to help you stand out and look ultra stylish at this year’s Galway Races.

Comfort: The key to style is by ensuring that the cut and colour of the outfit works for you. There’s no point in picking up a fabulous dress if you’re not 100 per cent comfortable in it. Comfortable reads confidence reads stylish.

Originality: Don’t follow trends religiously; choose only what suits your style. The outfit should also be appropriate to the event. You don’t want to turn up to the Races in cocktail wear or look like you’re heading out to a club. It’s all about reading the mood of the event and dressing accordingly.

Colour: Don’t go for the same colour from head to toe. Try to match different colours together, whether they’re complementary, such as two shades of green or contrasting, such as purple and yellow. If you like neutrals try nude, very 2010 and very complementary to most skin tones. Pale complexions suit richer, neutral tones in cream and blush, while darker skins can carry off very pale pinks and stark nudes. You can also add a touch of colour through accessories.

Accessories: These can make or break an outfit. Less is definitely more. Choose something that will match the outfit. A hat or headpiece is a must on Ladies’ Day. They add a bit of drama and balance the overall look. If wearing a hat, make sure it stays in place. If hats simiply aren’t your thing, then try a fascinator, hair band or flowers. For a touch of elegance, skip the oversize bag and opt for a clutch.

Grooming: All the obvious applies here such as well-groomed hair, and beautifully polished nails. Don’t overdo the make-up; remember, this is a day event. And rule number one should most certainly be to take it easy on the fake tan.

Footwear: There’s nothing worse than seeing a woman struggling to walk in her heels. Wedge heels are comfortable, stylish and add height; the ideal choice for a day at the Races. Keep a pair of flip-flops in your handbag for the long trek back to your car or the bus.

Weather: Don’t forget a chic cover up. The sun may be splitting the rocks but give it a few hours and you’ll be shivering in your heels. There are so many stylish coats or jackets around at the moment to choose from.

Cost: Looking great doesn’t mean you have to splash out. Lots of winners of the Best Dressed Lady competition in recent times have mixed designer with high street, or have simply kept it all high street. It’s all about how you put an outfit together and carry it off.
