Video: Style Tips For The Dublin Horse Show

When I’m dressing for the Dublin Horse Show, I prefer to wear something a little less traditional. Palazzo pants or a fluid dress feel much more “me” than a pencil skirt or fitted shift. Ladies Day may require a more formal approach, but generally speaking dressing for the Horse Show gives you the scope to reflect your personality through your outfit as much as any other event. If you have a rock chic side to your personality, forget the fascinator and try a fedora instead. If you’re a boho queen, a maxi dress is ideal, while there are plenty of very elegant fringed jackets and skirts in stores right now.

Click on the link below to see how I styled two alternative outfits for the Dublin Horse Show. All items are from Dundrum Town Centre, which is a Mecca for luxe accessories and high-street favourites.
