Newcastle’s Northumberland Plate: The highlight of the racing calendar at Newcastle, the Northumberland Plate Festival celebrates its 135th year this season.
From 29th June to 1st July it’s going to be fun, fun, fun with UB40 performing live after racing and a Family Enclosure added on 1st July with fairground rides and a host of activities. So ladies, don your best smart summer party outfit to sparkle and shine.
Fruity Little Number
Apply that fake tan and show off those shapely legs in Forever Unique’s Becky chiffon mini dress. The pale orange shade will enhance a glowing tan and look stunning on dark skin but also works well on fairer skins – a winning number!
It’s cut in the fashionable draped shoulder style so you can also flaunt those fabulous shoulders. Adorned with lace peeping under the hem and around the front neckline to make this dress stand out.
Also is available in a pale blue. Price £164.99 from Forever Unique.
If you’re not comfortable in a mini, go for the stylish knee length and dare to bare your back in Gina Bacconi’s Baroque beaded dress. This high neckline dress is almost backless with a large cut out to the waist. The bright blue fitted dress is exclusive to Little Black Dress. Price £149.
This is the type of occasion where there is no such thing as OTT so pile on that bling with this Gatsby inspired Swarovski Crystal clutch adorned with over 3,500 crystals and Swarovski gems hand applied in a striking abstract swirl pattern. Price £429 from The Crystal Shoe Co. on Etsy.
And guys should also get in to the party mode but please note collared shirts are required. Jazz up that city suit with a bold print collared shirt such as this limited edition navy floral print. Price £25 from River Island.
