Firm Fashion Favourites: Cold Shoulder, Asymmetric hemlines and the colour Green

Get in to the summer festival mood with a floaty dress.

When it comes to flirty fits and floaty fabrics, Coast’s Jamie Print dress has you covered. Looking fresh in lime green, it is perfect for spring and the warmer months beyond. The layered lace hem on the fashionable pleated skirt creates an uneven hemline – a look the fashionistas are all craving right now. The flirty cold shoulder sleeve is still hot on trend for this season. Price £139 from Coast.

Complement the low V neckline and floaty fabric of the dress with a delicate necklace. Edblad’s crescent necklace in gold plated stainless steel is ideal, with both a brushed and a shiny side for two different looks. Around £57.50 via Nordic Agencies.

The trendy twist knot is not only for the tie front of shirts, but also adorns bags. Dune’s Dhloe twist knot mini shoulder bag is small enough to be also be used as a clutch. Available in lime. Price £55 from Dune.

Keep the fruity colour palette and team with an orange jacket. The scallop trim on Ted Baker’s Heraly jacket softens its tailored look. Price £185 from House of Fraser.

It’s quite a walk from the Parade Ring to the Finishing Post so avoid stilettos if you are planning to complete the Circuit Ritual.

Nine West’s Gemily 9 sandals’ medium high block heel which will be kinder to your feet whilst still looking great. Available in soft suede and a zesty lemon shade. Price £110 from House of Fraser.

However if you choose to wear higher heels, take a pair of foldable flats for when your feet start to feel the pinch. CocoRose London offers a variety of colours including the Bloomsbury yellow ballerina pumps in super soft leather. Price £85 from CocoRose London.

Hats are not compulsory and most racegoers opt not to wear one. But if you love wearing hats go for a large fascinator such as Hats by Cressida’s Maroshi coral fascinator. Price £144.56 via Etsy.
