The Aintree Grand National in Liverpool may be famous for its horse racing, but on the 13th April, the ladies will be taking centre stage. Ladies day, where style shines through with fantastic fascinators, personality-filled dresses and heels with that competitive edge that make the paparazzi, and therefore the world, swoon. The desire to look stunning can be overwhelming, so we’ve created this prep post to help you stand out in style. Who knows, you may even win the Style Award.
“Dress shabbily and they remember the dress; dress impeccably and they remember the woman”
Though there isn’t an official dress code, ladies are asked to adhere to this inspiring Coco Chanel quote, and dress in a way that evokes their personality and uniqueness, so that their beauty shines through. Therefore, a conservative dress is just as good as a figure-flattering piece, and never be shy of those eye-catching hats and fascinators, sure to get you photographed.
Fancy dress and sports clothes are forbidden, so no horsing around.
Popular hairstyles this year include the topknot, modern pleat, braid updo and vintage waves. You can watch detailed videos on how to create these looks here.
For shorter hair, ponytails and pixie cuts with a statement fascinator can emphasize your style. If you’re playing the hat game, then bold colours overflowing with fabric and flowers will make you a showstopper.
Ladies day is long, so you need makeup that will outlast the grass, mud, alcohol and fun and keep you looking fresh. Not only that, your makeup should match your outfit and with numerous options it can be confusing. We recommend trial and error through practice dress-ups with friends, or simply speaking to a make-up professional at your local supplier.
