August 05, 2011 (PRLEAP.COM) Lifestyle News
Fashion Editor Bairbre Power will be the style judge at the Littlewoods Ireland Best Dressed Lady Series on Saturday, August 13th at Tramore Racecourse.

Bairbre has worked with the Irish Independent for a number of years and will be using her extensive fashion expertise to pick the best dressed lady on the day. Bairbre hopes the Tramore ladies will turn out in force this year and tells us what she is looking out for on the day, "I look for individuality and personality in an outfit. I love someone who puts their own personal stamp on a trend. I'm looking for colour, and an outfit that is appropriate for the races. Most importantly, less is more, you don't need a hat, large earring's, a statement bag and lots of rings".

Geoff Scully, Commercial Director, Littlewoods Ireland commented 'We're delighted to be involved again with the summer racing season and the Best Dressed Ladies Series. Our judge Bairbre Power will be on the lookout for Ireland's most stylish ladies in Tramore and we have some great prizes for everyone who takes part. We hope to see you there!"

3. Wear what you are comfortable in and don't be afraid to show your own individual style.

4. Comfortable wedges are the ideal footwear for a day at the races as they incorporate both style and comfort.

5. A colour coordinated shawl or wrap is the perfect fashion accessory that will have you prepared for the changeable Irish weather.

6. If you are wearing loud or colourful prints make sure you keep accessories to a minimum.

7. A clutch handbag is a stylish bag that can bring you from daywear to eveningwear and so is a great accessory for a day at the races.

8. Grooming and presentation is very important Pay attention to detail and don't forget the manicure and pedicure.
