What Are Your Top Fashion Predictions For The Spring Racing Carnival?
For spring I think we can expect a lot of colour as well as a playful take on volume and texture. We’ve seen longer hemlines, bigger sleeves, and suits with much more exaggerated tailoring for that cool-girl look. With headwear, ladies are opting for more paired back choices like headbands or pearl clips, however, for me a beautiful piece of statement millinery will never go out of style. As it’s spring, straw and lace are always prominent which I love for a feminine, elegant look. Kitten heels are also becoming very popular and you’ll certainly be happy with your choice by the end of the day!
And Of Course, What Is Your Drink Of Choice On A Race Day?
My drink of choice to celebrate at the races is Moët. This Moët and Chandon Champion Stakes Day we’re celebrating all things rosé which is such a perfect fit for the glamour of the track. I’ll be wearing a touch of pink and can’t wait to see how others interpret the theme into their race day looks. Guests will also be able to check out the Moët & Chandon garden and my favourite, the Moët vending machine with the Mini Moët Rosés!
How Do You Suggest Getting The Most Out Of The Day?
My tip for getting the most out of a race day is to embrace the fashion and wear an outfit that makes you feel like your most happy and confident self. So often, particularly with racing, we feel the need to follow trends but if you know your own style and what you feel good in, own it! Also why not read up on the history of the race before you head to the track. Knowing the prestige of the major race days helps you really appreciate what you’re about to witness. You might be telling your kids about it one day.
What Should People Expect From Their First Race Day?
Your first race day will be full of surprises because unless you’ve been to the track, it’s hard to really appreciate just how much there is to do. There is something for absolutely everyone so you’ll be entertained from start to finish. For me, The rush when the race jumps and the crowd roars is unlike anything else. You’ll be in awe of the size and speed of the thoroughbreds, the call of the bookies, number of bars including the Moët champagne bar in The Stables and delicious food options. Expect to be planning your next trip back before you’ve even left the track.
What’s Your Expert Tip For Those Who Have Never Been To A Race Day Before?
My tip would be to take a walk down to the stables to look at the horses before they race. It’s something not many people do but I think it will give you the complete race day experience (and you might just spot a winner in the yard!).
