Almost as famous for the fashion as the horses, the races are the perfect place to step out in style. But with dress codes to follow and plenty of people to impress, it can be difficult to plan your ultimate race day outfit.
Luckily, if you think that a dress and a hat is the only option, think again. From this season’s most stylish skirts to accessories, jumpsuits and heels, we’ve got plenty of budget-friendly and elegant looks guaranteed to keep the fashion odds in your favour.
Bet On A
While there’s nothing more classic than wearing a dress for race day, why not shake things up and step out in a jumpsuit?
Whether you’re watching your favourite horse or having a picnic trackside with your family, you can bet this item will help you stand out from the crowd.
To protect you from the chill, try pairing a pretty floral jumpsuit with a sleek blazer.
Flattering and fashionable, you’ll be looking and feeling fabulous even when the temperature drops.
If you’re heading to the Grand National with your girlfriends, now’s the ideal opportunity to debut your brand-new party outfit.
After all, if you can’t dress to impress for Ladies Day then when can you?
This year, we love the look of long, floaty hemlines. To tick off the trend and stay comfy and cool on your day out, try a midi skirt. Very much the style of the season, you can take your pick from asymmetric designs, stripes, polka dots and animal prints.
Throw on your favourite lipstick and some bold jewellery and you’ll be good to go!
Hats Off To
When it comes to the races, there’s one accessory that immediately springs to mind: a hat. From bold and bright styles to floral numbers and pastel patterns, half the fun of attending is spotting the most magnificent design.
Even so, hats aren’t everyone’s thing. Luckily, apart from Royal Ascot, the majority of events don’t have hard and fast rules about headwear.
To add a modern twist to the traditional look, why not try a statement hairpiece instead? Whether that’s a fascinator, a diamanté headband or a decorative hair slide, there are plenty of fuss-free and affordable ways to make your outfit ready for race day.
What shoes could be more appropriate for the races than heels? From black stilettos and silver styles to strappy designs, our chic collection will have you trying to fit your footwear into every photo.
Or, if you’re worried about sinking into the grass, try a pair of wedges to walk around Aintree with ease. Just remember to bring a pair of comfortable flats to throw on for your journey home!
