With the Killarney Races around the corner, I’ve been on the hunt for an outfit worthy of the much-sought-after Ladies Day Crown. We’re blessed here in Kingdom to have so many talented and creative fashion designers as well as boutiques right on our doorstep, so I was spoilt for choice when it came to choosing some of my favourite looks for the day.
Go Bold or Go Home
If you are comfortable wearing headpieces then be brave and go with a bold statement piece that will get you noticed. I adore this striking fuchsia creation by Cathy Troth, now available at Kerry’s Boutique. I’ve paired with this stylish Three Floor black dress to compliment, whilst also keeping the focus firmly on the magnificent millinery.

Let The Dress do the Talking
Headpieces aren’t for everyone so if they aren’t for you then making your dress the statement piece is the perfect solution. This structured lace beauty from Macbees cuts a fine balance between drama and delicacy and its flared frill detail is all the accessory you need.
Nissa Dress at Macbees – €220.00

Purchasing a designer piece for a special occasion such as the Races means you can wear something truly unique and eye-catching and this whimsical wonder from Clodagh Irwin Owens is certainly that.
