How to Dress for Race Days

by Goddiva Account 18 Apr 2023

Race Day is an exciting and glamorous event, where fashion and style take centre stage. Whether you're attending Ascot, a popular horse racing event, or another race day event, it's important to dress appropriately for the occasion. The key is to strike a balance between sophistication and fashionable flair while still being modest. Here are some tips on what to wear to the races to help you look your best.

First and foremost, it's essential to understand the dress code for the event you're attending. Many race day events, including Ascot, have strict dress codes that dictate what you can and cannot wear. For instance, Ascot has a strict dress code, which states that women must wear formal dresses and hats or fascinators, while men must wear a suit and tie.

When choosing your outfit, think sophisticated and elegant. A simple, classic dress in a neutral colour such as black, emerald, blush or navy is always a good choice. Look for a dress that is knee-length or longer, with a modest neckline and sleeves. Avoid anything too revealing or clingy.

Accessorize your outfit with a fashionable hat or fascinator. Race day is all about dressing up and showing off your style, and a hat or fascinator is a great way to make a statement. Look for something that complements your outfit without being too overpowering. A small, tasteful fascinator or a wide-brimmed hat is always a good choice.

When it comes to shoes, comfort is key. You'll be on your feet for most of the day, so choose a pair of shoes that are both stylish and comfortable. Block heels or low heels are a great choice, as they provide height and stability without sacrificing comfort.

Finally, don't forget to accessorize your outfit with some tasteful jewellery. A simple necklace or pair of earrings can add a touch of glamour to your look without being too over-the-top.

When choosing what to wear to the races, it's essential to strike a balance between sophistication, modesty, and fashionable flair. Keep the dress code in mind, choose a classic, elegant dress with a modest neckline and sleeves, accessorize with a fashionable hat or fascinator, opt for comfortable shoes, and don't forget to add some tasteful jewellery to complete your look. With these tips, you'll be sure to turn heads and make a statement at your next race day event.
