#imwearingRI | Race Day Ready

Race day is the one occasion where you can go all out in the style stakes and dress like your extra alter ego.  You know that dress that you never wear because its ‘a bit much’? Yeah, wear that and then add a fascinator. Race day is all about taking risks and having fun whilst sticking to the dress code. Pop open a bottle of bubbly and place your bets in the most OTT outfit you own. Need some race day inspo? These are the looks that even the bookies would approve of …

1. Frilly front runner

Start your race season off with a bang and debut this blushing pink midi dress while you rub shoulders with high society. Accessorise with a glass (or five) of champers, a practical block heel and a matching pink headpiece that screams race day chic.

2. Earn your stripes

Go wild and opt for animal print. Push the dress code to its limit and earn your stripes rocking zebra print on the track. Compete with the horses and win in a head to toe statement print that is guaranteed to turn heads.

3. Odds on bold

Bold and beautiful, make a statement in bright jewelled tones to stand out on race day. Quickly place your bets and then get on with causing a style stir. The best dressed lists aren’t ready, and neither are the punters.

4. Lace your bets 

You can’t go wrong with a bit of white lace. Elegant and classy, this semi sheer paisley lace number is perfect for the races. Dress up this classic piece with an injection of colour in your accessories (we’re thinking a bright blue fascinator with matching clutch) to get race day ready.

5. Crowd favourite

Life’s too short not to wear the suit … especially if it’s pink. Wow the crowds in this powerful pinstripe trouser suit and we predict that you’ll win big! For a polished finishing touch, slip on a pair of white court shoes to stomp on the competition whilst looking fabulous.
