With the Longines Irish Championship weekend Race day upon us I decided to dedicate a post to this elegant affair. It’s a chance to dress up, have fun with friends and drink a lot of champagne! Having won best dressed last year and winning some amazing prizes, I’m compiling a few things that you need to give you a chance to scoop the prize up.
My idea of a winning outfit is an outfit that embodies the three main Laws of Style, Confidence – Creativity – Class. A winning outfit makes you stand out because everyone is gonna go for the same old mundane look. The outfit has to have attention to the small details and it needs to be a reflection of who you are and your personality!
Last year I wore the one in a kind double breasted blazer with satin lapels from BoohooMAN which unfortunatley was never put into production, so I have one of very very few that were made! The white pants, knitted tie, lapel pin and black leather tassel loafers completed the look and won me the Prize for Elegance!
For my second look I went for something a bit more regal and wore a green velvet blazer with a silk scarf, black trousers, black leather tassel loafers and for that all important detail a gold pocket watch!
For my outfit this year, I have created this MTM masterpiece from Louis Copeland and Sons and hopefully if I am lucky again I can scoop the Prize for Elegance! The suede tassel loafers from Loake shoemakers add a much needed pop of colour and compliment the look well without taking away from it. Mr Jenks pocket square and lapel pin will be a must!
The second look is a stripe Double Breasted blazer from Roberto P Luxury which is availble in Puro. Piecing it together with a shirt with a collar bar adds that eye catching detail. I kept it simple with some navy trousers and went for some suede tassel loafers from Loake Shoemakers. The pop of orange from the pocket square really breaks the whole look apart and is the cherry on top.

I have a choice between these two looks above and I will decide which to go for later today so do keep an eye on my Instagram and Instagram stories to see which look I go for. Remember the three main Laws of Style will be a sure way to get you that prize! Confidence – Creativity – Class
