Usually one statement piece is enough with the fashion chic mantra chanting ‘less is more’. But sometimes at the races it isn’t the quiet calm chic style we want but a look that is empowering, daring and bold.

M&S’s Per Una Speziale lace body con dress juxtaposes a demure high neckline and a long knee length skirt with a sexy see-through appliqué lace overlay. This peek-a-boo look is all the fashion rage amongst the celebrities. Red is the colour of the season but are you a Scarlet Woman or Lady in Red? It depends on what you wear underneath. This dress comes with an on trend shorter underslip.

Price £129 and available in stores only.

Sunny days are not guaranteed especially in late summer. CC Clothing’s Papaya linen jacket will provide some warmth without spoiling the overall look. The fitted style emphasises the waist whilst the short length and low single button fastening ensure the dress underneath is still on show.

A day at the races can take its toll on your feet and before the end of the day you may feel the need to ditch the heels. But that doesn’t mean you also have to ditch your glamorous look. Keep in style and comfort with a pair of CocoRose London soft foldable flats. Their black Barbican ballet pumps in a rich baroque gold pattern will complement your outfit whilst the double cushioned insoles will ease your tired feet.

Price was £48 but now £30.
