The summer social calendar this year has been positively bursting with Ladies Day events, and WiW HQ are particularly excited about the upcoming Ladies Day at Sussex County Cricket Ground on Friday 19th July. Tickets are £70 and include ALL drinks AND a three-course meal, or just £35 if you want to do a cash bar; if that’s not a complete steal, I don’t know what is! This promises to be a fantastically entertaining and glamorous day, including complimentary taster spa treatments and some fabulous raffle prizes, such as a champagne afternoon tea for two at Bohemia Grand Cafe in Brighton. The fun doesn’t just stop here, there are some undisclosed surprises (which certainly intrigues me!) and also a slave-for-a-day charity auction, which features some of Sussex’s most well respected business people!
So what to wear? Ladies day’s are traditionally fashionable, theatrical yet sophisticated and elegant. Ladies day really is the day where you can take your chance to have some fun with fashion and really step out of your comfort zone.
As ladies days are all about the ladies, we understand that the task of finding the right dress for these ‘all eyes on you’ events can be a little daunting. Fortunately, our team of in-house stylists are well versed in dressing ladies for their ladies day events and will know what outfit will suit your shape. We will also keep in mind your personality and will help you find a dress that you not only look great in, but also feel comfortable in (comfort is a MUST as you will be in the dress for the whole day!). The style pictured right is a particularly appropriate dress for a ladies day. This European, designer dress is a truly unique dress with it’s luxurious black lace over a gorgeous dusky pink, giving you a fresh, modern look yet also an air of elegance and chic. The matching jacket is a perfect addition, ensuring that you won’t be caught cold when the party goes on into the evening!
The hat or fascinator
A hat or fascinator will be your crowning glory, so this is your chance to really indulge yourself, take a fashion risk and go completely over the top with your head gear! For Ladies Day at the Sussex County Cricket Ground the hat is particularly important as there is a Best Hat Competition! We have a wide range of dramatic and elegant hats at the boutique, so not only will you will truly be spoilt for choice, most importantly, you will certainly be in with a good chance of winning this competition!

It has become apparent in the last few months that the little beige dress could well be taking over from the little black dress in the UK. These barely-there hues have been super-popular both on the catwalk and with our customers who are seeing a classy, sophisticated look. Celebrities such as Kim Kardashian and Victoria Beckham are particular fans of the nude coloured dress, but if you want that celebrity look for a fraction of the cost, our boutique is the place to be!
Nothing says sexy-but-classy like a pencil dress does. So if you add the elegant colour of nude to a sexy-but-classy dress, you are on to a real winner. Our customers have found that these versatile little dresses are perfect for the workplace, lunch with the girls or are fantastic dresses for ladies day at the races.
Nude is a fabulous colour for a maxi dress, my own personal favourite for a beige maxi is this one shoulder Grecian style long dress with a lace bust. This dress is floaty, elegant and whimsical, guaranteeing that all eyes will be on you for all the right reasons! This dress is the perfect dress for prom, black tie events, and would make gorgeous bridesmaid dresses.
What accessories go with beige dresses?
One of the great things about beige is that it’s so easy to accessorise! Nude shoes go fabulously with a nude colour dress (providing you can find a similar colour-hue match), or virtually every other colour you could think of would match. If you are wearing a nude dress and want to add some extra colour to the mix, try to match your accessory colours with each other. If you are lucky enough to be going to the races this year, we have a gorgeous range of hats which will go fabulously with your dress.
So what do you think? Could it be the little beige dress rather than the little black dress? Let us know!
The summer social calendar is positively bursting with race day events. If you are lucky enough to be a ticket holder for any of the horse races across the UK, not only will you be experiencing the excitement of the racing, you will also be experiencing some of the most exciting, theatrical fashion events of the year. Without a shadow of a doubt, the crowning glory for any lady attending a race day is a hat or a fascinator. An ostentatious fascinator or hat is your perfect chance to go for something you would not normally wear, so try something outrageous to set off your outfit.
We have decided to truly spoil you this year with the range of hats and fascinators at the boutique and we are sure that we will be able to find something to suit your taste.
One last point which I would like to make is that a hat or fascinator to match your outfit does not have to cost the earth. Many of our fascinators and hats are available to hire as well as to buy, so if you are working to a budget, do consider this an option as you can get that fabulous designer look for a fraction of the cost!
