Fine fashions to set hearts racing

by Gazette Reporter

BEING a fan of the races doesn’t mean you have to don silks and jodhpurs and, this week, stylist and fashion guru Lisa Fitzpatrick (right) talks Gazette Style through some fabulous outfits deserving of a Ladies’ Day win ahead of her nationwide Fashion Fix roadshow.
She said: “I love going to the races and even more so, I love dressing up for them. I have picked some of my favourite pieces from Coast, Karen Millen and Bastyan that would be fabulous at racing meets.”
Working clockwise from the top left, she said: “This Karen Millen maxi dress (1) is gorgeous. The colours are ideal to bring right through from spring to autumn.
“Another floor-length item that I really love at the moment is the Coast Hyper Bloom Skirt (2). Maxi dresses and skirts are great and always make an impact. You’re sure to stand out from the crowd!
“We all know that we can’t rely on the Irish weather so it’s important to wrap up for the races, too. I think this gorgeous Bastyan Eva Belt Coat (3) is fabulous, and will do just that. This belted design also creates a simple and chic silhouette.
“I also love this Coast Harven dress (4). Again, this is also the length I love: midi. This dress is so elegant and stylish, and can be taken from day to night,” said Lisa.
“I’m a big fan of midi-skirts. They are just so comfortable, yet so stylish; I love this one from Karen Millen (5).
“Now that the clocks have gone forward, we can officially say it’s spring time, and what better way to do this than to wear yellow! I just love this Coast Rita skirt (6),” she said.
All these items, and others shown above, are available in Coast/Karen Millen’s spring/summer 2015 range.
