Top four style tips for women attending this year

Comfortable shoes. It sounds simple but is so often overlooked. I would suggest going with a tried-and-tested pair as opposed to new ones.

Coordinate your outfit rather than match the overall look. It's much more sophisticated.

Make the effort to wear a fascinator/hat. If you're wanting to be in with a chance of winning the Best Dressed prize, I would leave the high-street alternatives and go bespoke.

While sheer and transparent is a catwalk trend, there's a time and a place for it. Test your outfit's opacity in daylight before Saturday, to be safe.

Colours likely to be omnipresent at Meydan this weekend

Bright coral tones, mixes of red and orange. A personal favorite this season is citrus yellow - so fresh and so happy.

Monochrome has been a big look for spring and is easy to pull off, so is bound to be a popular choice this year.

Catwalk trends ladies will be adopting and adapting for the World Cup

Geometric prints. Not only are they super-flattering but with so many colours there's a huge scope to find a hat/fascinator to complete the look.

Lace, in particular white, will be a hit trend on race day. It works well with the time of day of event and our climate; it's so pretty and feminine, too.

For footwear, I see the 'point' making a big comeback.
