What to Wear to the Races – Dresses for the Races
Getting an outfit for the races is a task which many women no doubt will be facing, what with important events on the racing calendar fast approaching, such as such as the QIPCO Guineas Festival, and of course, Royal Ascot. What to wear to the races is a question for which there is no correct answer. Which makes finding dresses for the races no easy feat!
An Outfit for the Races – How to Look the Part
An outfit for the races, depending on the meeting, may not necessarily need to be that formal. However, it certainly pays to check the official information website of the race event for what to wear to the races as per the specified dress code. Dresses for the races are always chic and given that a hat is almost a must, a dress is the icing on the cake to looking lovely come race day. Of course, an outfit for the races doesn’t have to mean dress, but what with etiquette, formal tradition and exacting dress codes lodged heavily into the racing tradition, why not use the occasion as an excuse to pull out all the stops and embrace the debonair spirit of dressing for the races!
