Style ahead of the field

For the second year in a row, I had to go to the Sun Met for work. While the chance to dress up a little always excites me, dressing to a theme is a bit of a challenge.

Since Sun International took over the Cape’s most popular racing event, the day has become more elegant and stylish – with last year’s theme Decades of Glamour, and this year’s Style Ahead of the Field – encouraging racegoers to come dressed in styles and prints inspired by Africa.

And, let’s be honest, it’s not as though I needed an excuse to support local designers – and, what better place to shop them that at I fell in love with this print combination a while ago, but I knew that I would melt wearing a kimono on a hot, January day. So, my favourites at Ruff Tung took that print combination and created a very limited-edition range of Tuli Wrap Dresses that give you the most gorgeous wrap shape, in this eye-catching floral. And, when I say limited edition, I mean it – there are only 7 of these exact dresses available for purchase.

Buy it here in this exact combination, or here in the darker blue print only.

I loved it from the moment I tried it on, but can’t begin to tell you how many compliments I had from complete strangers on the day, who seemed to adore it as much as I did. I paired it with a custom-made fresh flower fascinator from Epanouir Flower Studio, and, well, felt rather lovely.

I found the fit to be a bit smaller than usual, so am wearing the 44 / 46, which I found fit me perfectly across the back and chest area – so, I would recommend sizing up.
