Shopping for Ladies Day, or for any occasion wear, can be stressful if you don’t take a strategic approach. Basing yourself in an environment that houses everything you’ll need, from headpieces to high heels, makes the task much more enjoyable and far less tiring. Dundrum Town Centre is home to both high-end designers and high-street favourites, iconic Irish labels like Fitzpatricks Shoes and exquisite jewellery brands for when you require something extra-special. The enormous variety of retailers in Dundrum Town Centre makes it easy to create a Ladies Day outfit that’s unique to you.
Fitted dresses and fascinators aren’t for everyone, but this doesn’t mean you can’t compete for the title of Best Dressed at the races this month. Try embracing your personal style, but elevating it with beautiful accessories and elegant fabrics. Palazzo pants are a great option for women who are more comfortable in trousers. They offer a fluid silhouette that looks effortless, but elegant too. The polka dot print of these Zara trousers adds a lovely feminine touch, while the shade of teal looks fresh and unexpected. Balance this softness with a pin-sharp white shirt. This piece from Hobbs is impeccably tailored. Gold jewellery ups the glamour quotient beautifully.
Will the future see us unifying elements of our humanity rather than the distinctions of gender?
