Race Day Etiquette

Dressing for a day at the races is unlike any other occasion. Race wear etiquette
stems from a formal dress code handed down by generations of racing clubs and their
society members. Today, while strict rules have become more relaxed, channelling
traditional ladylike elegance will have you on the right track.

STYLE

It’s daytime so wear a day
dress, rather than an
evening dress.

LENGTH

If you’re wearing a short dress,
ensure that it sits just above the
knee and is not too short.
Decorum is always in style.

WEATHER

Watch the forecast and consider taking
a tailored jacket or lightweight coat if
the weather is unpredictable. A beige
trench coat will work with most looks
as a last minute addition.

FASCINATORS

Fascinators are usually made to sit on the
right side of your head but can be worn on
either side. Some also look great worn
towards the front and centre of the head,
covering your part line.

SPARKLE

Keep sparkle and embellishment
to a minimum. A hint here and there
in your accessories in fine, but don’t
go overboard. Interest and detail can
come from print, texture and colour
in your outfit.

ETIQUETTE

When in doubt, think about the style of
outfit you would wear to a wedding.
A wedding look will usually be appropriate
for a race day, with the addition of a race
day hat or fascinator.

MAKE UP

Keep make-up soft, natural
looking and appropriate
for the daytime.

FOOTWEAR

Wear comfortable mid height high
heels or a pair of wedges
