Racing Ready

Giddy up, the Galway races are just around the corner, and we have everything you could possibly need to create a showstopping outfit!

We have put together a style guide full of outfit inspiration that is perfect for all types of weather.

If you are looking for a stunning statement dress to wear to the Galway Races, then the Darlene dress from King Louie is the dress for you. This charming sleeveless dress features a shell print, pleating neckline, and waist along with a flared skirt.
We wanted to keep it simple with accessories and let the dress be the focal point of the outfit and that’s why we chose the Valencia heel wedge in black from Fairfax & Favor for shoes, the Suffolk Fedora in black from Hicks & Brown to keep the sun out of your eyes all day and finally, the Windsor Clutch in black from Mackenzie & George to carry all your racing essentials. 
The elegant CC Blossom tailored jacket from WG is made for the Galway races This stunning soft blossom pink jacket is finished to the highest quality and the wool blend allows for breathability whilst keeping you warm. Allow the blossom pink jacket to be the main feature of the outfit by pairing it with the stylish slim-fit Poppy Jean from Schoffel and the beautifully designed Fakenham shirt, also from Schoffel.

For shoes and accessories, we think the Suffolk Fedora in dusty pink from Hicks & Brown ties in with the jacket perfectly and the Monaco wedge in Tan and the Tetbury Crescent suede bag also in tan, both from Fairfax & Favor, tie in with the pheasant feather wrap on the hat effortlessly. The Galway Races always guarantees to be a fantastic event but unfortunately, they can’t guarantee the weather. Not to worry, this gorgeous Hooded Swing Coat from RainSisters will keep you stylish and dry all through the racing. This stunning waterproof softshell coat will protect any girl from the elements, while it's popping red shade will make her stand out from the crowd on even the gloomiest of days. We think the Upton leather boots from Fairfax & Favor and the Mini Windsor handbag in black, also from Fairfax & Favor are the perfect accessories to complete this outfit. The Galway Races is the perfect occasion to wear bold colours and stand out from the crowd and the Suzette pleat skirt from King Louie will certainly help you stand out. To help make you outfit pop even more we have styled this gorgeous skirt with the Cardi Yoke Bonet, also from King Louie. This elegant red cardigan ties in perfectly with the red in the Suzette skirt. For shoes and accessories, the Holkham Panama hat from Hicks & Brown along with the Valencia wedges and the mini Tetbury suede tote bag in sunset orange from Fairfax & Favor complete the outfit perfectly. 

We can’t forget the men going to the Galway Races and the Schoffel Belgrave Tweed Sports Jacket is perfect for the occasion. This 100% pure lambswool jacket will become a staple in any man’s wardrobe and last them for years to come. To create a timeless outfit, pair the Belgrave sports jacket with the Christopher Chinos from Schoffel and the Titchwell tailored shirt, also from Schoffel.
To finish your outfit, add the Kerry Leather soled boots in mahogany from Dubarry along with the Oxford belt in chocolate from Mackenzie & George and you are racing ready!
