Spring Carnival Racing Dress Code Etiquette Tips

Trend Talk: Get Your Race Wear On Track!

I don't know about you, but I love getting frocked up and heading trackside with some pals come racing season. Of course we pretend it's about the horses, but reeeeaaaally it's all about the outfits! Dressing for the races can be tough — changeable weather, sore feet and dress codes all make it tricky. Inspired by Miss Gale's peachy ensemble, we've got the form guide for getting it right on race day:

The races is supposed to be classy, so puh-lease don't show acres of leg or extreme cleavage. Without sounding prudey, pretty much anything strapless, sheer, micro mini or super tight is not your friend.
Whatever you do, DO NOT take off your shoes! Reduce the ache by choosing a lower heel (kitten heels are making a comeback!) and get some Party Feet to ease that ball-of-foot burn.
Broad day light is not the place for sequins and sparkle, so leave the shiny stuff for a night out on the town.
Spring Carnival is usually more fun than the Autumn Carnival, so try out Summery colours and bright prints. The exception to this however is Derby Day, which is traditionally a black and white affair.
Hats aren't essential, but it's nice to make some sort of effort. Try a bejewelled head band or hair accessory. Diva and Sportsgirl do some nice little numbers, or go all out with something by celeb-fave Jennifer Behr.
Take a supplies bag! You never know when the weather will turn, so grab a cover up that you can stash in your bag, as well as double sided tape and band aids for fashion emergencies.
