Lady’s Day
Monday, 31 March 2014
Ladies day; dating as far back as the 18th Century. We ladies must put in more effort than usual down at the races. The majority of us are aware of the grand fashion weeks in the world's most famous cities but aside from that; the elite have their own fashion show. It is as much about style as it is horse racing.

The Royal family are particularly well known for making a conscious style effort on these occasions. Some may choose a certified co-ordinating suit whilst others may slide more towards the classic 'lady-like knee-length dress'. However, one thing is for sure, hats are the ultimate style statement: the more ostentatious the better.

Besides the hats, one mustn't reveal too much skin, reservation is glorified and ladies, sensible footwear please. It is going to be a long day and sinking into the grass, getting caught tripping up and bruises are not allowed in 'Lady-dom'. To co-inside with this, there will be champagne and other alcoholic beverages available throughout the day and it is most advised that pace is key. This brings us into another matter or long, white dresses. No no no no no. Mud is an awful enemy of fashion and to be standing around all day trying to impose a 'Gone with the Wind' look is definitely off the cards. Or off the bets if you like.


Alongside fashion a pretty face is nothing without a brain. Know your horses! Do not turn up to a race without knowing what is actually racing. Whilst you are checking your ticket, check for dress codes! Fashion faux pas is intolerable.

Good luck!

Celebrities today have certainly become people to watch not only for their careers, but also for their fashion and lifestyle choices.

We certainly see them as trendsetters and one cannot deny that they definitely have a major impact on what we wear on a daily basis. Even if you don't like reading celebrity gossip and like to consider yourself superior to all this "stuff", you won't be very happy to hear that you will most likely own in your wardrobe at least one item that was originally brought to the masses by a singer or actress!

And their fashion influence does not only extend to us grown-ups, but it also includes their kids! What have Sarah Jessica Parker's daughters worn on their first day of school? What do Brangelina's children wear to appear on TV? I am sure these are questions that have crossed the mind of any new mum or mum-to-be.

At this time of the year all we are thinking about is Spring fashion for ourselves, but, not less importantly, what our little ones will be wearing too!

If you like to follow fashion also for your kids and need some inspiration, here are some trends that are emerging from Hollywood's darlings!

Colourful Leggings

Luna Leggings are quickly becoming the go-to tights company for the children of the A-Listers. The children of Sarah Jessica Parker, Alyson Hannigan and many others have been seen wearing these tights and, well, it's easy to understand why! Their bold patterns and very vivid colours make them not only trendy, but fun to wear and appealing to the kids.

Unfortunately, they come with a chunky price tag attached to them and if you find them a bit too expensive for your pockets right now, you will be happy to know that there are better ways! Debenhams offers a brilliant range of leggings that replicate the fun mood and style of the much adored Luna leggings. And the best thing is that the prices start from only £6! Shop with vouchers, if you want to get more for your money.
Floral Dresses

You can never go wrong with florals in spring. A dress completely covered by flowers has a certain appeal for all ages but especially for little girls. This particular dress that you see in the picture worn by 2 different celebrity kids is the Ditsy Floral Dress by Splending Littles and it costs $64. You can find a great selection of the cutest floral dresses for kids also at Debenhams for a much more affordable price.

Pastel Colours

Pastels are not only a huge spring trend for us mums, but they also run high in the list for our daughters! And guess which is the pastel shade that celebrity kids are preferring right now!? Pink, of course!

I don't know what it is with girls and the colour pink, but there seems to be a fatal attraction that starts from very young and carries on all through the teenage years. It is an attraction that has reached the celebs too, who simply love to buy pink pieces of clothing for their little ones.

Any pastel colour will do the trick and make your daughter look really trendy and girly this spring.
