So ladies for the prestigious Ladies Day, how are you going to stand out from the crowd and really win in the style stakes this spring summer 17 season. Ok so lets start with the coolest trends this season. Hats are optional at the races, but incredibly popular so when planning your outfit start off deciding whether you want to wear one or not? Obviously the races is a chance to get dressed up and really shine so next  thing to think about is your colour palette for your outfit. Obviously as its now spring as long as the weather is ok there’s plenty of scope to wear beautiful vibrant colours. Wanting to go one step ahead and add a fabric or print then this spring summer season the most popular colours and prints on the runway were canary yellow and pink! Wow that is bold but you don’t have to wear it from head to toe. Floral and fruit prints are massive and so is gingham so when your planning your look consider those trends. Or go for a simple sophisticated dress like the lilac one below and accessorise with a headpiece or embellished purse. If hats aren’t for you don’t despair you can get creative with bows or hair accessories. Here’s a few very cute ideas straight from the high street to stand out from the crowd this Ladies Day.
