Your Chic and Contemporary Guide to Race Day

Ladies, as the most exciting season of the year approaches, we’ve put together the ultimate guide to ensure you and your girls have an unforgettable time this spring racing season! 

Embrace the Occasion  

How often do you get to dress up and go all out? Raceday is your moment to shine and enjoy the process! Co-ordinate colours with your friends, and spend far too many hours on Pinterest looking for inspiration, anticipation and preparation are half the fun! Keep in mind, there’s no such thing as overdressing during the racing season!  

Never Sacrifice Comfort for Style 

We love sky-high heels too but with a long day ahead of you, comfort takes precedence over fashion. Ideally, aim for both. Your outfit should be as practical as it is fabulous, ensuring you can enjoy champagne all day without toppling over!  

Check the Weather!  

Although it seems obvious, we’ve all worn a slightly too short dress on a windy day and faced the consequences! Stay weather-wise and make sure your look takes the weather into account! Keep safety pins and clips on hand to avoid any fashion disasters. Avoid heavy tailoring in the sun and stay hydrated!  

Add a Splash of Colour 

Leave that little black dress behind! Spring racing is all about vibrant colours. Use your outfit to express your style in the most colourful way possible. If you want to try a look that seems to bold for your everyday style, race day is the perfect time to test it out.  

Stay Sun Safe  

Is there a better excuse for a lavish hat then the races? Sport statement sunglasses for style and don’t forget your sunscreen. Re-apply with setting sprays with sunscreen in them to ensure you stay protected throughout the day.   

Heat-Proof Your Makeup  

There is nothing worse than looking back on your photos and noticing your mascara has smudged before the day has even started. Check out our long-lasting makeup tips that will help your makeup last all day long!  


It’s time to get serious about finding that perfect race day outfit. Let’s leave the horsing around for the track – this spring racing season, you’ll be turning heads with your fabulous style!
