Celeb Style Steal: How To Get A Winning Look For The Races

Hollyoaks actresses Gemma Merna and Steph Davis both looked stunning at the Grand National. At the races there is so much pressure to look your best because you know everyone else will dress up too. It can be really difficult as you want to show you’ve made an effort but you don’t want to look tarty. And that’s why I think these ladies looked so good – they’re not flashing too much flesh but the cut of their outfits shows off their figures and they’ve got some killer accessories going on too.

Steph, on the right, has a more clasically girly look going on and you can almost get her exact look at Very. Her dress is from Forever Unique and I’ve spotted the same one in a slightly darker colour at Very – the Forever Unique Amaryliss midi dress. I think it would be really flattering to wear as it hides the stomach area while the bandeau top and the pencil skirt show off your best assets. The net flower fascinator and Cerys clutch finish the look.

And let’s not forget about Gemma, below left, who shows off a more feisty side.

Very has a lot of lovely black jumpsits in now, which are equally as glam as dresses. I like the South crossover bandeau jumpsuit for it’s strapless top, which adds to the glam factor. With a jumpsuit, heels are essential and nude shoes really lengthen the legs  like the Shoe Box Paige platform court shoes. For this, she accessorises with a chunky necklace like the  Charlotte core statement necklace.

Have you got any trips to the races planned this summer? Keep it classy with the outfits and rock the accessories like these stars do and you’ll have a successful day…in the fashion stakes at least! Just be careful who you bet on.
