As with any racing event autumn racing is about keeping things sleek and simple. Women’s suiting is still a front runner, yet this season we are seeing a more structured style with waist belts and cinched in blazers, or cropped style blazers to add a more feminine touch. Separates are also a great option allowing racegoers to mix it up and re-wear items after race day – it’s a great way to keep the budget intact. In terms of dresses, this season it’s all about volume, a dress with a statement sleeve or skirt adding that extra wow factor. Colour-wise we are seeing lots of shades of orange, yellow, burgundy, pink as well as strong neutrals. Opt for elegant pieces and experiment with autumnal shades and textures. On cooler days, embrace layering by pairing a beautiful dress with a blazer or coat, and be sure to keep headwear top of mind. This season we are seeing a lot of simple hair clips, velvet and metallic headbands, however traditional felt hats and crowns are still very popular so there are plenty of options.
If you’re heading to an autumn racing event consider some of these pieces to style the ideal look.
