There is nothing better than a day at the races, and there is no better excuse to treat yourself to the perfect race day outfit. Many racecourses in the UK, now have ladies days as regular events, some now with live entertainment after the days racing has finished. Many race courses have fairly strict dress codes, but that is what you would expect. After all, going to the races is definitely a reason to dress up! From being at many race events, it is crucial that you find an outfit that is comfortable. You will be spending quite a lot of time in the outfit – so make sure, you can move around in it, and that you feel comfortable and confident. You are quite likely to be outside for a large portion of the day, so it is vital that you are able to dress up and down quickly in case you get too cold or hopefully the sun comes out and makes you want to get some rays. Choosing a dress with a matching jacket or bolero is a popular favourite for covering off all eventualities. There has been much debate in recent years regards to headwear. It was once frowned upon to wear fascinators at certain race venues, but now fascinators and hatinators are seen at the most popular options for ladies. Getting a matching handbag or clutch bag can really make the entire look sing.
Below are some reviews from our favourite race day outfits promoted on the site
A lovely, floaty dress. The small flowers look like spots and go with colours from lemon through to lime. The skirt hangs very well. Great for an occasion or dressing down
Absolutely fell in love with this dress, it's perfect as my ladies day outfit. Smart, colourful and stylish.
This dress fitted great the style and length of it were perfect for me i felt comfortable and confident in it all day. The fabric is great quality and colour is good.
Perfect dress for a spring/ summer wedding. Really pleased with quality and fit.
This dress fits like a glove. The neckline with the pin tucks is flattering and 'sits' nicely. The folds of fabric at the sides are forgiving as are the elbow length sleeves. It is light and comfortable to wear
Excellent dress and fit. Looks stylish and has easy movement with the body
I bought the dress for a forthcoming event and due to the fit and feel of it, I knew it was perfect. So lucky to find my ideal dress
