Cover Ups – A guide

So you’ve found the perfect outfit, you’ve sorted your accessories and you’re more than ready to spend a day at the races, but one thing missing – a cover up. Being an all-day affair, you sometimes need an extra layer when heading off to the races, especially if you’re going to be moving outdoors and outside throughout the day.

Matching cover ups to your outfit can be difficult. There’s the shape, length and colour to think about, so let’s break it down…

Something Reliable
Sometimes, it’s often simpler to keep your outer layer classic. When you’ve branched out with your dress, been daring with your accessories and are braving the heels, a classic cover up brings the perfect balance between comfortable styles, and fashion statement looks.

Office Smart: The best of tailored jackets

When you need to add an extra layer to your outfit, cardigans or jumpers can sometimes make work ready look a bit too casual. Fortunately, there’s a way to maintain your office-ready style without being cold – and that’s with tailoring.

Smart jackets or blazers are a go-to item during the cooler months. They’re great for getting you to and from the office, and they look oh-so smart at the same time. But how do you choose the right one for your outfit?

Best for dresses
If you’re opting for the classic silhouette dress, your choice of jacket is pretty much endless. The only thing to bear in mind is that you don’t want your coat to be much longer than your dress. A cropped style works perfectly, while those that prefer something with more coverage can’t go wrong with a classic trench cut.
