The races day fashion dilemma is upon us once again, with a long summer of outdoor occasion dressing ahead of us. If you're heading to Ascot or lucky enough to be in a box this year, the dress code can be pretty strict. Sleeves and dresses that fall as close to the knee as possible are an absolute must so cover up your shoulders in one of our shrugs this season.
With the British Weather having it's ups and downs opting for a faux fur shrug will prove to be a worthy investment. It is practical and such a versatile piece. We have three beautiful and unique shrugs below for any races regular.

Wedding season is in full swing and an influx of invites to nuptials shouldn't have to leave you stuck on what to wear. In true British style, the unpredictability of the weather means we can't guarantee anything. So when you're putting together your wedding outfit be sure to incorporate stylish wedding cover ups.
Decide on the shape of outerwear you like, and one that will work with your outfit. It may be a shrug, a cropped jacket or a simple cardigan.
A tip to remember is to take the rest of your outfit with you when you go shopping for wedding cover ups. This means you can try each one on with your outfit and pick the best one for your outfit. Alternatively, bring a selection of outerwear options home with you and return any you don't wear. The key to continually looking chic is buying items that can be mixed and matched with loads of different pieces in your wardrobe. We have beautiful faux fur pieces which you can throw over your dresses!
