There aren’t many occasions that you get to dress up (like really dress up) and show off a little of your personality. Thankfully the Galway Races is one of the events that you can do just that. So here are my fashion tips.
The Do’s Colour is always a winner in style stakes. Wear something that will catch the judges’ eye.
Wear an outfit that you feel 100% comfortable in. You will be wearing it for hours.Footwear is key in completing any look. Ensure that your shoes are clean and comfortable, many beautiful outfits have been ruined by bad footwear choices.
A hat or headpiece is a must in racing circuits and the same rules apply with these. Make sure that your head-wear choice is comfortable.
Colour blocking is huge at the moment, just look at how beautiful Kate Middleton looked in her baby blue outfit choice at Ascot this year.
Be a little different! There is a lot of outfits that look very similar and that makes it harder for you to stand out. A simple dress with a great hat or bag can do just that.
Don’ts Fake tan disasters will ruin any outfit and there is no excuse for it these days. We live in an era that has fantastic formulas to get the best possible tan without the sun damage. Do your tan two days before the event and that allows you plenty of time to correct any mishaps.
Never wear shoes that will have you walking like a baby giraffe. They may work on a “car to bar” night out when you won’t be walking much but they are not a good look for the races. Same applies to walking around barefoot with your shoes in your hands.
Although not necessarily a styling tip, keep alcohol to an acceptable intake. Slurring your words while being interviewed on stage probably won’t put you in a winning enclosure.

We’re excited to announce that style guru Jenny Buckley will be co-hosting our Racing for Rosabel event on Tuesday, July 30th. Jenny has a wealth of experience in the Irish Media and has established herself as a polished professional in Broadcasting, TV Presenting and Voiceovers.
Having been nominated at the VIP Style Awards as one of Ireland’s most stylish women, we are looking forward to Jenny bringing her unique sense of style and insight into the fashion industry to The Skeff Bar during The Races, which is synonymous with Irish style mavens nationwide.
Speaking previously about her passion for fashion and her own style, Jenny said “fashion and style has always appealed to me and I don’t go for an ostentatious look, it’s an innate thing but I love a tailored look and simplistic lines.”
The Racing for Rosabel event holds a special place in Jenny’s heart, as she was godmother to the late Rosabel Monroe, who unexpectedly passed away at only 16 months old. All proceeds made will be donated to Rosabel’s Rooms, which Jenny raised money for in this year’s VHI Women’s Mini Marathon. Get your tickets here:
