Tips for nailing the right outfit for racing season

The horse racing season is well underway, launching a long summer of outdoor occasion dressing ahead of us. Follow these race day attire tips to ensure your odds are through the roof this season.

Dress accordingly for the occasion and the weather
Remember, you’ll be outside for most of the day, not hitting a nightclub. Don’t have your skirt too short, heels you can’t walk in and the too much flesh on display.  Race festival fashion should be more demure than disco.

Balance your outfit
If you’re going all out with a flamboyant hat, keep the rest of your outfit understated.

Accessorise, accessorise, accessorise
A day at the races is all about having fun with your outfit and accessorising is a must.  Bags, heels and hats are the staple pieces that should complement the outfit to get that polished look.

Solid colours
Block colours make for a dynamic, confident look that’s perfect for the races. Alternatively, monochrome, the staple style for the Belmont Stakes in New York, can leave a lasting impression. Pair monochrome outfits with a bold red lip and small clutch for a dynamic overall look.
