What to Wear for a Day at the Races
Whilst racing festival season may be over, many race tracks up and down the country continue to host fantastic races and events. Here we look at what to wear for the races, race course dress codes and how to still look stylish at the races as the winter months draw in.
Hiring a dress for the races proved an ever popular option this year as the need to impress in a designer piece and to avoid being seen in the same dress as another race goer heightened, as did hemlines. Designer dress hire assured our race going ladies had all the class and more cash to put on the horses. Here we look to what to wear for the races as we head into autumn and winter.
Monochrome is the colour scheme to be seen in this A/W13 . Black and white palettes are great for the races as their simplicity means they are almost automatically classy and chic. The three pieces above show just how versatile monochrome can be.
From the Chantilly Lace Alice and Olivia number to the Mackynzie 3D Dress to this simple but striking D&G piece, they all score major fashion points without disturbing the dress code. Monochrome can also be dressed up by adding the correct accessories – every race goer worth her salt knows an extravagant hat is a must.
If you’re looking to hire a dress for the races in the upcoming colder months then one way of keeping warm and stylish is to hire a designer dress with sleeves. Sleeves are great in two ways as they not also tick further modesty boxes and therefore crack race course dress codes. They’re also amazingly stylish. The three pieces above and perfect to wear for a day at the races and even as the autumn months draw in you’ll still be comfortable. After all no good bets are going to be made if you’re too busy desperately trying to conserve heat.
If you stick to the rules, keep it simple and nail your accessories, then race course dressing can be easy and stylish. Why not check out our blog for several posts on how to dress for the races.
