Five Tips to Stay Comfortable While Looking Fab

For most of us, going to the races or a party causes a lot of headache. We might need to take hours to get our hair done and choose the right dress, just to be hiding all the time in the corner because of an uncomfortable shoe or a broken zip. If you would like to look stunning and feel comfortable at the same time next time you go out with the girls, or when you go to see the races, check out our five tips below.

Party Dress Fashion

  1. Choose the Right Fit

The main reason why people’s clothes get ruined during parties and races is because they don’t choose the right fit dress. If you decide to spend hundreds of pounds on a dress, get it from a place that offers free alterations. You need to stay glam, and this means that you must have the right fit you can move around in. There is nothing worse than having to adjust your dress or your bra sticking out at the front every couple of minutes. It will take all the fun out of going out.

  1. Inspect Stitching and Buttons

Before you head out for the night or the day, you will need to eliminate the risks of getting exposed or embarrassed by inspecting the buttons and stitching. They have a bad habit of breaking at the worst possible time. You might also want to take a scarf or a bolero with you, in case something breaks, or someone decides to spill red wine on your outfit. It is necessary to be prepared for the worst, so you can enjoy your night out.

  1. Have a Spare Pair of Shoes

If you have to take a taxi or drive to the event, maybe take public transport, you might want to wear another pair of shoes on the way, so you are not killing your heels and soles before you arrive. You might also want to check whether you would benefit from insoles available at biopods.com, so you can stay on your feet, enjoy the company and the entertainment, and have a pain-free experience.

  1. Get Spare Tights

Ladders on tights happen at the worst possible times. If you can, you should take some spare ones in your handbag, so you can go to the toilet and change. However, a clear nail varnish can also be a lifesaver, too. It can stop the tights from running further, and you can still look good on that group photo with the girls. Tights are the easiest to break, and you don’t want to be hiding in the corner or behind other people because of them.

  1. Fix Your Looks

Having your hair done and spending hours at the beauty salon, just to have it ruined by rain and wind is one of the most annoying parts of being a glam woman. Ask your beautician to fix your makeup and your hair, so it will resist rain or shine. Take some spray with you, and check your makeup regularly in a small pocket mirror, so no photo opportunity will catch you unaware and unprepared.

Looking good and feeling comfortable should not be a compromise. Make sure you are making precautions to enjoy your special events.

What to wear to the races

women-watching

Horse races have quite a long tradition in the UK, being not just a sports event but also a social event where everybody display’s their best attires. So, if you plan to attend the coming horse racing event, stirred by the betting odds released by WilliamHill or simply because you want to enjoy the occasion, you need to know what to wear. Believe it or not, horse races are rather sophisticated events, where, regardless of how appropriate it may seem, you cannot wear a casual attire. Yes, you are going to walk on grass and dirt, but you need to display a flawless attire, suitable for a lady like yourself, so you may want to follow the pieces of advice listed below.

  • Choose the right dress

Before you choose the dress you will wear at such an event, you need to know that there is a dress code you need to respect. If this is not enough, each horse race may have its own dress code, so make sure you check this first. It is enough to access the website of the horse race that interest you and you’ll find there the information concerning the accepted dress code. But, as a general rule, short dresses should be avoided, as mid-length ones are more suitable. They should not be embellished with sequins or be too cropped, and they should not allow your underwear to be seen. So make sure you assort the underwear with the color of your dress.

  • Don’t forget about the hat

Hats are elegant accessories, so if you always wanted to wear one, but never had the chance to do so, a horse race is the best occasion. Again, check the website of the race to see if there are any specifications concerning the hat particularities that are accepted. But, whatever you do, choose a hat that will flatter your attire and body size and shape. For example, if you are not too tall, a hat shaped like a mushroom will make you look even shorter. Never choose the hat and then the dress, as it may turn out to be more complicated. It is easier to find the dress first and then find the hat that is right for it.  

  • And yes, you must wear heels

It may not seem like such a good idea to wear heels somewhere where walking on grass may be involved, but horse races are all about elegance, so you will have to make this sacrifice and leave your practical sense at home. Of course, you can avoid walking on grass, for the sake of your shoes, and only do it if there’s no other way. Concerning the heels, make sure they are clean and that they do not present any scratches or scruffs. You will be very well analyzed by the rest of the participants at the race, so you need to protect your image. But, even so, it is not a good idea to wear new shoes at a horse race, as you’ll end up with painful blisters. Try breaking them in by wearing the shoes around the house.

  • A light makeup will be the winner in this case

The makeup you will use when getting ready for a horse race should complement your natural traits and not cover your face. You are not going to a nightclub, so forget about smoky eyes and bright red lipstick. If the day will be sunny, your makeup will be even more visible, an extra reason to opt for something light, like rosy blush and pastel eyeshadows. And if you really want to have a flawless appearance, ask the help of a hairdresser to match your hairstyle and hat in a way that will make you look amazing and chic.
