Racy Day

Race Day outfitting is all about dressing up. Combining seasonal trends and formal dressing can be tricky, but keeping to our sartorial commandments should help you nail your Races outfit…


"Dress code RULES should only INSPIRE new ways of styling"

Read the dress codes carefully and take them on as a styling challenge. An illusion neckline is the perfect answer to achieving a strapless dress look. Alternatively, opt for high-waisted skirts to cover your midriff whilst balancing out your silhouette.

"No colour is too BOLD at Ladies Day"

When shopping for the perfect Ladies Day dress, take the opportunity to celebrate colour. Scarlet reds, lipstick pinks and cobalt blues are sure to turn heads when taking to the tracks.

"Build your look around the FASCINATOR"

Dresses for the races have to be chosen with their fascinator or head piece in mind. As the signature element of any day-at-the-races outfit, choose a statement accessory and build your look around it.

Tip: if the fascinator is intricately detailed, opt for a soft falling neckline to balance out the look.

"Want to make a STATEMENT? Print, Print, Print."

With all eyes on the style awards at Ladies Day, dresses for the races need to be striking and beautifully refined. Our favourite statement combination is a bold print applied on a luxe fabrication – look out for jacquard florals and layered printed chiffon.
