Ten Tips for Wearing Separates to the Races

Want to stand out from the crowd this racing season? Mix and match your separates for a cool new take on a traditional trackside look.

skirts + tops

  1. Be mindful of your skirt and keep your hemline at a respectable height – remember it’s a day at the races, not a night out at the club.
  2. Experiment with mixing colours, lengths and prints and don’t be afraid of a twin set. Match tones and mix block colours with bold prints for something fun.
  3. Emphasize your waist by tucking in your top, especially when wearing an A-line or voluminous skirt.
  4. When putting together your outfit, consider your headpiece and heels as well. Proportion is key when it comes to pairing separates.
  5. A sophisticated event calls for a sophisticated look so keep it classy when baring skin.

pants + tops

  1. Wear a flare! Work this season’s hottest pant with a fitted top for a perfect slender silhouette. Avoid anything too boho-inspired and denim is definite a trackside no-no.
  2. A pant suit is a perfect race day outfit option and looks amazing with a killer heel. Look for well tailored pieces that fit you perfectly and don’t be afraid of colour.
  3. Wide-leg pants are a seriously stylish option for the races and work best worn back with a fitted or cropped top. High-waisted styles are generally more flattering and lightweight fabrics instantly add elegance to your look.
  4. If you do opt for a cropped top, make sure it skims the waistband of your pants – the dress regulations at many race clubs don’t allow for exposed midriff. No one want’s to be that girl getting knocked back from the members enclosure.
  5. Make sure your pants are the right length for your chosen heel. If in doubt, head to your tailor for advice and take your shoes with you!
