What to wear at the races

Whether you’re a seasoned pro or a first timer at the races, it can be hard to know what to wear. Unlike nights out and brunch occasions, when it comes to the races there tends to be a certain expectation in terms of what you wear. Think fancy and sophisticated! 

You can pretty much wear whatever you like as long as you’re dressed up enough and you’re not flaunting jeans and a simple t-shirt. To help guide you in the right direction, we’ve pulled together some of our top outfit choices that are sure to have all eyes on you!

Dresses to wear to the races

Dresses are always a safe and sure bet for something to wear to the races - they’re easy, sophisticated, and give off the perfect vibe for the races. Let us take you through some top dress styles for the races.

Midi dresses for the races

Take our Nina Gold Dress, for example. This figure-hugging dress has been designed and made in luxurious sequin, making for the perfect sophisticated midi dress for the races. Style with a pair of black or gold high heels and a textured clutch bag and you’re good to go.

Another perfect midi dress for the races is our Victoria Hot Pink Dress. This statement hot pink midi dress is designed from crepe fabric with boning in the bodice for a fitted look that contours and sculpts your silhouette, ensuring you look beautiful and sleek at the races. Match with a pair of heels and a mini bag and you’ll look like a million dollars!

Mini dresses for the races

Our Lottie Champagne Dress is the perfect mini dress for the races. Hand embellished and adorned in champagne beaded fringing and sequins, this dress is an absolute showstopper. Pair with heels, a bag, and a coloured blazer and you’re going to look out of this world.



Our Lexi Black Dress is another top choice for a mini dress for the races. With feather jewel detailing to the hemline, full length sleeves, and fully lined for a smooth and comfortable fit, this dress is sure to make you stand out. Pair with block or stiletto heels and a cute bag and you’ll look perfect.

Skirt & top combos for the races

If you’re not feeling a dress, perhaps go for a skirt and top combo. 

These combos are the perfect addition to your wardrobe, making them perfect for a range of occasions, not just the races! Our Mia Pink Skirt & Taylor Hot Pink Shirt would make for a flawless look for the races. With a skirt fitted to the waist and a feather detailing hemline, and a shirt with feather detailing to the cuff, this top and skirt combo is ideal for the races. Even better, you can mix and match these styles to make them fitting for other occasions in the future.



Our Sara Pink Skirt & Nicole Pink Top is another perfect look for the races. With the skirt individually hand embellished with crystal waterfall beading and feather tips, this skirt and top combo is designed to make an impact. Pair with heels and a mini clutch and you’ve got the perfect fit for the races.

Jumpsuits for the races

Jumpsuits make for the perfect look for the races. Easy, comfortable yet totally sophisticated, choosing a jumpsuit is a sure and simple way to make a real statement on the big day.

Our Michaela Purple Jumpsuit is a jumpsuit with a difference. With sequins and stunning floral embellishments & embroidery, this jumpsuit is made to be worn at the races. Pair with colourful heels and a clutch bag and you’ve got the perfect look.




Looking for something more simple? Try something like our Hailey Black Jumpsuit. Serving a more understated look, this figure-hugging jumpsuit, complete with a flared trouser, is perfect for those daring to make a statement in a simple way. 

Extra tips for what to wear to the races

When it comes to planning what to wear to the races, you need to consider the time of year you’re going, how the weather is likely to be, and most importantly what you’ll feel most comfortable in.

Going to the races is a great excuse to get all dressed up and wear something elegant but you’ll want to make sure you feel comfortable to ensure you are able to have a good time.

Another thing to consider is your accessories. Every outfit and look can be elevated by utilising accessories so don’t be shy and treat yourself to some new jewellery, shoes, a new bag - whatever you need!
