What To Wear To The Races

From Randwick’s Everest Day to the Melbourne Cup Race Day, the celebrations may be a little different but race season is still in full swing! Whether you are watching from home or attending the races, find your winning outfit with our favourite dresses for the season. 

When deciding on what to wear for the races, keep in mind a semi-formal, classy dress code. Racecourse dress codes can vary depending on the event or area you are watching the races from, so make sure you research the rules before choosing your dress. Each race event has its own distinct fashion style - Derby Day requires a sophisticated monochrome outfit, Oaks Day is known for feminine and floaty floral springtime dresses, and the Melbourne Cup is renowned for sparkles, striking and stand out ensembles. For any race day, opt for a dress with a flattering silhouette and a romantic colour palette to ensure you make a statement. 

Feminine and glamorous dresses adorned in lace, floral prints or bold colours are elegant and suitable choices for other race days. Dresses should fall to the knee or below and should provide sophisticated coverage. Accessorise with a fascinator or hat for a polished race day ready outfit. Keep in mind that you will be standing for most of the day, so choose a pair of heels that are as comfortable as they are stylish!

Embrace the spring race season with a floral dress to match like our Peonie. 

Floral Classic Spring Style
 
A Derby Day dress code is strict, so opt for a refined monochrome look with black and white tones. 

Black and White Dress

Block colours are suitable for almost every race day dress code, and a bold colour like red will have you standing out from the crowd. Pair our Aerin dress with a statement fascinator for a bright and glamorous ensemble. 

Red Aerin Dress Montique

Another perfect look for Derby Day, a classic black jumpsuit is contemporary choice for the races. For a refined yet relaxed look, our Brooklyn Jumpsuit provides comfort for a day at the races and looks gorgeous with a wide brimmed hat.
