Bring back the retro look

If you’re after a timeless look the best place to start is raiding your local vintage shops. We know some second-hand shops are a little hit or miss, and you sometimes have to be very dedicated to discovering those hidden gems lurking right at the back of the rack. If you need some professional help, you could always go vintage shopping with a personal stylist. You’ll get the hot tips on the best vintage fashion spots, and expert advice on how to mix styles from different eras to create the perfect look.

Design your own heels

You can be on your feet all day at the races – so if there’s one thing that’s more important than anything else it’s wearing comfortable shoes! Did you know that it’s possible to design your very own pair? You can pick and choose the best bits from hundreds of styles of heels including pumps, wedges, sandals and more. You can even match the colour of your shoes to your outfit and choose what type of material you’d like your shoes to be made from.
