Upcoming race days include the Dubai Duty Free Irish Derby Day which takes place at the Curragh racecourse on, Saturday, 29th June, 2013 where Michelle Keegan, (who plays Tina McIntyre in Coronation Street) will be judging the Best Dressed Lady competition. Michelle has shared her top style tips for entering the Most Stylish Lady competition:

Hat Appeal

A hat or headpiece is a must for summer racing and can really add to the overall look. The great thing about summer racing, is that race goers have a lot more flexibility when it comes to headwear, and if they don’t want to for the more traditional hat or fascinator, they can choose a more summery straw look.

Accessorise, accessorise, accessorise!

Although it is important not to over accessorise, the right jewellery can really make or break an outfit and should always be thought of as the perfect finishing touch.

Natural Beauty is best

When it comes to day time racing, less is always more when it comes to make up and it is important to let your natural beauty shine through and make sure you haven’t overdone it!

Don’t go for nightwear

When choosing the perfect outfit, it is important to keep racing etiquette in mind, so save shorter dresses and minis for night time events!

The perfect footwear

Shoes are a very important part of any race day outfit and can really complete the overall look. Racegoers should always go for a stylish practical look and if you are splashing out on a new pair of shoes, make sure you break them in before the big day
