3. At the Races

The races day dresses dilemma is upon us once again, with a long summer of outdoor occasion dressing ahead of us. Browse our pick of the perfect race day attire to ensure you stand out in the crowds, this season. What to wear to the races has us sartorially stuck, year after year. The dresses in your wardrobe are either inappropriately short, impractically long or unfashionably in between, so we suggest you invest in a dress designed with a day at the races in mind.

With spring in full bloom, opting for a floral frock will prove to be a worthy investment. The modern way to wear your florals is big and bold. Or, for something a little more statement, look to dresses where graphic prints are cleverly worked into sophisticated silhouettes, perfect for a day at the races.

Shape-wise, A-line is always a flattering option, creating a tiny waist, plus, this style is always fun to wear. Mid-length hem lines are ideal for those events with strict dress codes. Or, for those feeling a little more boho, try a floor-grazing maxi dress, and team with some sky high heels.

Sweeping chiffon with an embellished waist and unconventional eyelets are guaranteed winners for spectating in style.
