If you’re heading to The Galway Races and looking for some outfit ideas, our Person Shopper Pamela has some inspiration and words of advice….

This dress is from Born for €72. I headed to River Island for the accessories for this look. The sandals are €75, the neck piece, €25 and the clutch, €20.

Culotte Jumpsuits are a huge trend this season and a nice alternative to a dress. This one is from warehouse for €103.The neck piece is from Oasis for €31.The shoes are €75 from River Island  and also I also got the clutch in there for €20!

This whole outfit is from Oasis, they have a great selection in store at the moment. The gorgeous floral print dress is €84,  neck piece €31, hat €25 and clutch €15. Wedges are great for a full day event like the races and would be perfect with this outfit.

When you have picked your outfit, style it up and add your own twist. Add a fascinator or hat, a statement piece of jewelry or a little vintage bag and don’t forget the most important accessory of all …….. Your Confidence!
