What to wear to the races?

Everyone wants to make a statement stepping out track side on the big day. The races are all about bright colours and a bold print dress will ensure you make heads turn at the finish line. A pair of chunky heels will will keep you from sinking in the grassy areas as you shout your favorites home, shielded by a wide brimmed hat for a “My Fair Lady” look.

 Being race day ready is not all about the dresses, though. A frill sleeved body suit paired with a high waisted midi-skirt is a simple, yet understated, way to show your stylish side while flaunting all of your best assets. Pairing basic and bright colours can make a simple outfit beautiful. A great combination is coral and navy.

 If you are not all about having your legs out then a smart pair of wide legged trousers paired with a pretty lace top will still be glamorous. You can even pair it with a simple fascinator to keep in theme with a pair of sky-high heels.
