One thing I know about dressing for race day, is that less is more, and this applies to men and women. There is no need to wear ALL of your finery at once, just choose a look you will feel comfortable in all day long. Keep the jewelry to a minimum, heels low, headware a reasonable circumference and height, fabrics non flammable and hem at the knees. Makeup should also be natural looking, disco eyes at the races should be avoided at all times.
If you’re really not sure how to dress for race day, think about what you would wear to a wedding and add a headpiece and a wrap (inevitably the weather cools down and you’re left shivering in chiffon). Sensible shoes, sound very sensible because they are sensible. I recommend staying away from Kumfs and opting for a shoe with a kitten heel or wedge rather than a stiletto. You won’t have to worry about digging up clumps of dirt in your stilettos, blisters and tripping (because inevitably, like the weather turning chillier, you will be plastered).
Race day is a fun day and it’s the perfect excuse to get frocked up, look like a lady or gentleman, and if you’re really lucky go home with a win.
