Oaks Day November 8th 2018
Ladies day is for romantic styles, pastels, creams, whites and feminine refinement.
‘Pretty’ is the word of the day with trackside hair and beauty soft and ladylike.
You traditionally see ruffles, lace, floaty styles and pencil dresses that speak to femininity.
Feminine Ruffles & Florals will be huge this season at the races, but florals are not everybody’s best choice, so be careful! Larger florals can be overwhelming if you are heavier, and will be better suited to those of you with a willowy body and legs that don’t end. If this is you, try a floral on floral look, the result will be divine when teamed with a block-coloured shoe, but be sure to go easy on the accessories if you do.
As for hats and fascinators, it’s important that these complement your outfit. For a simple dress, perhaps go a bit bigger with your head attire. If your personality allows for bold and out there, then go for it. If not, and OTT is not who you are, then just choose something that is comfortable and right for you.
Stakes Day November 10th 2018
The final day of the racing calendar, Stakes Day is known as a day for the family.
A more comfortable and relaxed style is perfectly acceptable for the day and time to have a little fun on the field!
Think fun and fancy free, asymmetric styles, full skirts, jumpsuits and fun print.
You might have something in your wardrobe already that you can accessorise with an on trend hat, jewellery and a killer shoe!
