Grand National Fascinators, Fashion & Tips

With just a few days left before the biggest race event in the calendar year, we’re looking at the ever evolving fashion trends of the fabulous Grand National!


Since its beginnings in 1839, the Grand National has been and always will be the largest steeple chase event in Europe with over 4 miles, 3 1/2 furlongs and 30 fences over 2 circuits. It is the biggest and most valuable jump race in Europe and is watched by an estimated 500/600 million people worldwide!

If you are thinking of attending the event this year at Aintree Racecourse then you need to stand out! Although it’s not considered as being the fashion event that Ascot has become, it’s still absolutely essential to wear something that stands out so you get noticed!

I always suggest choosing something comfortable and stylish. It is essential that you wear gorgeous yet practical shoes. You don’t know it yet but you are going to be on your feet all day! If you are really looking to make a statement then you should definitely check out our Couture Fascinators, hats and headwear for something that really stands out!

If you’re looking for something simpler then check out our new range that’s now available in House of Fraser. They stand out but not in an overpowering way. All our fascinators, hats and headpieces are light and easy to wear with comfortable headbands that can easily be worn all day. All of our headpieces are available from our website

They’ll be plenty of things to get excited about from best jockeys around to the ladies off-track as they display their colourful and gorgeous styles and to the fun of putting a bet on your favourite horses. So at this early, I suggest you check out the odds here for the Grand National Ladies Day

It is not too late yet, so hurry on and order the best dresses, fascinators and headpieces and see you on the Grand National Day this 9th-11th of April.

Good luck!!!
