Melissa's Tips For FATR

Building on from the Spring Racing Trends, Melissa Barnes takes us through some key tips for FATR.

Shoes

To avoid blisters and sore feet make sure you wear your shoes around the house a few weeks prior to race day. 

Class

The track is not a night club. Opt for longer hemlines and light, fresh makeup. 

Hat or headpiece

Ladies, where else can you wear a piece of art on your head? Go all out or choose a modest headband to compliment your outfit. While a hat is not essential for the blokes it really does take a sharp suit to the next level. 

Tan

Don’t try a new fake tan just before a race day. Orange is not a good look so keep it as natural as possible. 

Season

Heavy fabrics and materials like wool or felt are for winter. Spring calls for light materials such as straw and sinamay. 

Details

Show off your personality with the little touches. Bags and bowties are just the beginning so keep an eye out for something that will take your outfit to the next level.
