The Best Fashion Trends for Ladies Day at the Grand National
With Ladies Day at the Grand National hosting the style awards and some amazing prizes on offer for the winners, the event attracts fashionistas not only from the race events’ home city of Liverpool but across the country as well. It’s fair to say there is always stiff competition, and ultimately everyone comes looking their best. As such, one good way to prepare yourself and make sure your outfit stands out on the day is by opting for dresses made by talented up and coming designers.
The Grand National takes place in April and despite the changeable weather so far, spring should be well underway so plan your outfit accordingly. Some of the most exciting new designers include Edda Gimnes, who already has celebrity fans in Gigi Hadid and Lady Gaga, and young designer Sabinna Rachimova, who specialises in creating amazing crochet outfits. Of course no Ladies Day outfit is complete without a special hat and one of this year’s standouts comes from Jayne Alison, designer of the amazing Penelope Hat.
