How are you going with the whole Work/Life balancing act? It’s a snappy little phrase that assaults us from every direction, and appears to be the gold star standard we are required to hold ourselves up to. So, like a 15-year-old gymnastic prodigy, do you simply glide along that balance beam with poise, grace, and not a hint of doubt? Probably not. In fact, to take the sporting analogy even further — I think we have raised the bar a little too high on this particular ideal and it’s time to put it to bed.
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…
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.
A wraparound style such as a wrap coat is the perfect choice for dresses that float around your knees or below, and the lapel style means you can completely cover up when it’s a little cooler, or wear it open for a more relaxed approach.
