Bring Back “The Roaring 20’s” with Girl Meets Dress

In his novel, The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald described life during the Roaring 20’s. In his description he mentions “the parties were bigger, the pace was faster, the shows were broader, the buildings were higher, the morals were looser, and the liquor was cheaper.” Doesn’t that sound great? I mean, who wouldn’t want that?

Why don’t you take it back to the Roaring 20’s with our new range of 1920’s inspired dresses? Here are a few iconic looks you can replicate with Girl Meets Dress.

Daisy Buchanan                                                                                                                          Jordan Baker

As a major style icon in the literary world, Daisy’s is definitely a look you’ll want to try.

What Best to Wear to the Grand National

It’s that time of year again. Horse racing fans from across the globe will be flocking to Aintree in April to witness the greatest flat race in the world at the Grand National.

History has been written about the legendary runners and riders who have triumphed in the Grand National, each of them demonstrating that thrilling combination of human endeavour and equine fortitude. From the legendary triple-winning success of Red Rum, to our present day successors, there is always a story to be told. Two of jump racing’s high-profile amateur jockeys are set to miss this year’s Grand National because of bans picked up in recent days. Sam Waley-Cohen and Nina Carberry have both been given week-long bans which, contrary to initial reports, will mean that both are prevented from taking part in the famous Aintree race, in which both have fared well while falling short of actual victory.

Once again the world will stop in its tracks, as 600 million people watch live on television. 40 horses and jockeys will line up to race across the famous fences including Becher’s Brook, Canal Turn, Valentine’s and The Chair.

Ladies Day brings a touch of elegance to The Crabbie’s Grand National Festival, providing an opportunity for racegoers to compete in the style stakes alongside top class racing action on the world famous Aintree Racecourse stage.

Many of you start looking at dresses to hire weeks and months ahead of the event – and if you’re lucky enough to be heading to the Grand National 2016, we take a look at what best to wear to the races.

 

Grand National Dress Code

What to wear to the Grand National

 

Although there is no official dress code, smart is preferable and is often adopted. Aintree is a spectacle of colour for all three days of the festival, with many using their trip as an opportunity to showcase their favourite raceday outfits. Hats are optional too, but are frequently worn. Sports clothes and fancy dresses are not permitted for the Grand National meeting.

In 2016 Grand National Ladies Day women are urged to dress more conservatively to make the race more ‘aspirational’

 

For her

Florals, graphic prints, lace and coral shades were some of the big trends from the spring/summer catwalks which will work well at the races.

Ladylike lace pieces are likely to prove popular with attendees, as are the edgy florals and three quarter length skirts.

In terms of footwear, women should be cautious about choosing skyscraper heels which may sink into the grass. Luckily flat shoes are some of the most stylish around this summer, or for those who prefer a bit of height, wedges from LK Bennett or Stuart Weitzman are the perfect compromise.

Grand National Hats 

Although optional, hats and fascinators are the order of the day and attendees tend to embrace the opportunity to be a bit creative. Remember to choose something which works well with your face shape and outfit. If you’re opting for structured tailoring a small hat will look lost, while a busy printed dress will work well with simpler headwear.
