A day out at the races is synonymous with having a great time – from the races themselves to the champagne and atmosphere and, perhaps most importantly, the dresses! There’s no doubt that the attendees like to get competitive with their outfits and show off their best sides, so it’s a great opportunity to dress up and treat yourself to a new accessory or two. Headwear is an important part of the race day look, but hats are a little too formal for some. So why not try some stylish fascinators which double up as jewellery in many cases whilst keeping your blow-dry in perfect shape?
