‘What I am looking for as a Judge’
As York Racecourse’s partner milliner and judge for the ‘Welcome to Yorkshire Ebor Festival’ here are some tops for what I am looking for in the best-dressed competitions.
1 – COLOUR is the ultimate key if you really want to stand out from the crowd and catch the eye of a judge. You can do this using different hues whether they are strong and vibrant or subtle pastels. You can also work around one colour shade.
2 – HATS are a must if you would like to get noticed by the judges. They add height; width and texture to your overall look and defiantly attract attention. The options are endless for hats whether it be a cocktail style, which are much easier to wear but if your going to go all out on a huge hat stick to a simple dress.
I love elegant, chic and feminine hats, a style which really flatters you.
3 – ORIGINALITY is another key look for me. Make sure you make a point of being slightly unique, creative and different with your outfit. It will grab the attention from myself and the other judges.
4 – PERSONALITY – let your personality define your style. You can mix up brands together and let your creative eye and on trend style shine through your whole look and outfit.
