WhatLauraWore: Dressing for Ladies Day

Well ladies, its that time again.  Regular readers of WhatLauraLoves will know that I’m quite partial to Ladies Day at the races and in particular, Aintree.  I love to plan an outfit for inspiration in advance of the big event so that I’m prepared and excited without the worry of wondering what to wear!

Today I wanted to give you an idea for a Ladies Day worthy outfit for those who don’t want to have to wear the traditional hat or a fascinator.  My hair is curled and gently swept to the side.

A floor length gown instantly adds a sense of glamour to an outfit which is definitely what attending the Grand National is all about.  The dress I’m wearing is a coral one shoulder dress that I bought from eBay.  I absolutely love it.  The dress is fully lined to the floor with a satin style material with a chiffon style overlay.  There isn’t any stretch in the material and the waist band under the bust has little sequin things attached to it.  In my opinion, the sizing is very poor and the dresses are on the small side so I would suggest ordering a size or two larger than your usual and then have it altered to fit your exact body shape, which is what I would do.

I’ve paired my dress with some gold jewellery, a gold sparkly clutch bag and some gold heels.
