With just over three days to go until the John Smith Grand National at Aintree, and more importantly Ladies Day – we’re all frantically running around the office deciding what to wear!! We love an excuse to dress up – and racing is such a fantastic day out and a great opportunity to show off our special occasion wear – and hey, you never know but we might win the Style Contest! If you’re lucky enough to be attending the John Smith Grand National at Aintree this week, then here are Jacques Vert’s selection of what to wear!
Why not wow the crowds in a Maxi Dress this year? This look hit the catwalks last summer and became an instant hit. It carried on it’s success through Winter, and is set to carry on being a trend throughout the rest of this year. Don’t be afraid of Maxi’s – they are actually quite flattering, and the longer length is so elegant to wear. At Jacques Vert we have just added a gorgeous Jacques Vert Florette Jersey Maxi Dress with a chic cowl neck. flattering waist seam, and stylish side split you’ll feel absolutely fabulous in it. Of course, being Jacques Vert we don’t just have the special occasion dress for you – we have all the accessories you need too. Pick out the pink in the flower print with our Jacques Vert Passion Knit Cover Up – perfect for the unpredictable spring weather – and Jacques Vert Chic Flower Fascinator. Add a pop of this summers hottest colour, blue, with our Antigua Shantung Shoes and Antigua Shantung Clutch Bag. A real crowd pleaser!
If Maxi Dresses aren’t your thing and you prefer a shorter length, then how about our Jacques Vert Oriental Butterfly Devore Dress. This flattering dress pairs two of the hottest trends this summer – an oriental theme and bold colours. The butterfly print is so feminine, and paired with the bias cut and double layer hem, it adds up to a flirty and fabulous dress. To complete your winning look for Ladies Day at the John Smith Grand National just add our Jacques Vert Antigua Bolero Jacket, Jacques Vert Antigua Fascinator, and the aforementioned Antigua Shantung Clutch Bag and matching shoes. You’ll really stand out from the crowd – in a good way!
Last but not least, how about a more tailored look? How about our Jacques Vert Tumbling Floral Complete Look? This tropical toned floral print on a bias cut top and skirt are so pretty and they are cut to flatter from size 10 to size 22. Add a touch of bold colour with our Spa Blue Shantung Jacket and accessories for a touch of statement glamour. No-one will be looking at the horses! The great thing about this outfit is that all the pieces can be mixed and matched into your existing wardrobe afterwards e.g. wear the Tumbling Floral Top with a navy cardigan and trousers, or pair the Spa Blue Shantung Jacket with neutrals to add a pop of colour. It’s the touch of vibrancy that your wardrobe has been waiting for!
Whatever you decide to wear, and whatever horse you have a flutter on – we hope you have a fabulous time at the John Smith’s Grand National this weekend. If you’ve missed out, then don’t worry – there’s always next year! If you’re not into Horse Racing, then not to worry – we happen to think that these outfits would make amazing wedding outfits too!!
