style for York’s Ebor Festival

For York’s oldest, richest, fastest and most famous race, go for the classic look with lashings of glamour.

Our Firm Fashion Trend Favourites are classic monochrome, tuxedo dress and a dash of dapperness.

Tuxedo Dress

Although the catwalks were not awash with this style, the tuxedo dress is certainly a hit with the celebrities. Beyonce, Kim Kardashian and Rihanna have all been spotted wearing a little black tux this year. The dress somehow manages to emulate the iconic tailored masculine style whilst turning it into a sexy and feminine look.

We’ve chosen the white double breasted tuxedo dress designed by Made in Chelsea’s Rosie Fortescue for Lipstick Boutique. Satin detailing on the lapels, buttons and cuffs adds more glamour.

Price £65.

Like the men’s tuxedo jacket, the tuxedo dress is a classic and has the stamina of being a winner for many seasons to come.

Fedora Hat

Complement the tailored tuxedo dress with a more masculine style hat. For the summer races a fedora hat is ideal. We’re putting on the glitz with Rosie Olivia’s YOLO ivory straw fedora encrusted with different sized black Swarovski crystals in the dents. Also available in all black or black with gold trim.

Price £355.

The Bow Tie

The black bow tie is a must with a tuxedo and Tatty Devine’s bow tie necklace will give a fun and modern twist to your look.

The bow tie is 6cm x 3cm so is large enough to make a statement. Its etched detailing gives a 3D effect. The chain length is adjustable from 40cm to 44cm.

Price £25.

Another way to wear your bow tie is on your handbag. Carvela Dotty black satin clutch bag adds sparkle to its bow tie.

Was £65 but now £29 at House of Fraser.

Monochrome

Emphasise the monochrome look with a pair of Jimmy Choo Maxi black and white sandals. Featuring a T-bar strap and a mid-height block heel, these sandals give a perfect blend of chic style with practicality for the racecourse’s terrain.

Price £528.21 but on sale via Far Fetch.
