Horse Racing Fashion for Sydney Siders

Have you ever wanted to show up to the races in style, standing out from all the other hats n heels? Today is your lucky day, because I’m thinking of you before Spring Carnival starts up to give you time to shop for your ultimate outfit. In this article I’ll go over some secrets for women to dress, impress and even get a betting advantage over the partners/boyfriends/girlfriends.

First thing is first, let’s get into talking about betting advantages, so we can finish on shoes. 😛

Getting An Advantage In Your Betting

I know this is going to sound like a betting platform but it isn’t, it’s really a mailing list for people to receive betting advice for a small fee. This can be SMS’d to your phone, so he or she (you partner/date) has no idea what is going on as you’re placing some winning bets. The platform only covers horse racing tips and is quite personal on service, where you speak to a real person and aren’t just another number.

The Hats, The Clothes, The Style!

Everyone is going to be heading down to Myers or David Jones to get the latest hat in trend, so why not use something you’re using right now, the internet. What you’re going to be looking for is something called a “fascinator” hat or “cocktail hat”. It’s generally a fancy hat with a flower and possibly a wide brim. If you think about Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast At Tiffany’s with some kind of floral arrangement tied into the ribbon, that’s what you should be aiming for.

I found this amazing blog post that goes over a few outfits based on Audrey Hepbuns film fashion style. It compiles a lot from ASOS (As Seen On Stars) but it’s great value for getting an idea on that particular era.

The Shoes…

Now for the most important part of any race day, shoes. Now, if you’re wearing heels to a race day, emphasis on the word day, then you’re not the brightest bulb in the hall. You really don’t want to look like a fashion noob at the end of the day with blistered feet and carrying your heels. No no no no no. You’re really going to want to wear some stylish flats that are comfortable and tough.

The most popular shoe style are going to be your ballerina, although this really does depend on your outfit. It’s always best to use common sense here and base your style on your dress. For example, if you’re going to be dressed in a Audrey Hepburn style with a nice 60s dress with floral hat, perhaps a pair of Mary Jane’s would fit your outfit best.
