This racing season, you can bet you’ll be best-dressed on the track with these styling tips for what to wear to your raceday event.
People regularly ask themselves; is this too formal? Should I add a fascinator to this outfit? Does this dress suit these shoes? The next time you attend a trackside event just remember these styling tips to look flash and fabulous.
The juxtaposition of textures and colours
In this modern age, the juxtaposition of fabrics is becoming increasingly evident in women’s fashion. New textures are being explored in unique interpretations of dressing especially when considering races fashion. Bold accessories, textures and patterns are all the go whether you want to dress it up or glam it down- it’s always a safe bet when you have one stand out feature.
The block colour
Don’t be afraid to use colour. But when you wear a dress with one block of colour, remember to compliment it with the differing colours of your accessories. Black, gold and silver should be your go-to colours to compliment vibrant colours, but if you want to stand out, be bold, be beautiful, and pair bright colours with other vibrant colours that will make people stop and admire.
For a more formal look – black and white
The combination of this monochrome colour scheme makes for a much more formal stylistic approach to dressing. The sophistication of these colours appeal to all ages, placing an elegant aesthetic on the wearer, their personalities and their appearance. The simplistic clash of the contrasting shades create a sophisticated look that vibrant colours cannot compete with, so if you want to make a good impression beside the track and take everyone’s attention away from the horses, stick to the minimalistic yet chic colour scheme of black and white.
The classic spring floral
The classic spring style has always emphasised floral patterns, juxtaposed with complementary shades of warm colours. But this season you should change this original style and apply your own unique interpretation. This can be done by changing up your fascinator piece, the shoes, the colours or the cut. As frocks come back into style for spring, halternecks and sleeves are becoming more prominent beside the track. So pair your garment with a slick updo, bright lipstick and comfortable heals and you will be ready for rocking the best frock.
