Race Day & Spring Racing Outfit Ideas

The spring racing season is upon us and we love this time of year to get dressed up and pampered. Fashion on the fields is one of the events where you can go all out with your outfit. Think of combining bold contrasting colours, pretty florals with feminine accessories, or add a pop of colour to a monochromatic look. Be sure to be playful and wear something that is going to make you feel absolutely fabulous.

We've put together 3 spring racing outfit ideas …that you'll actually wear again. We hope these will inspire your spring racing look. Consider pieces that will see you wearing it for some time to come, versatility is key which will see you styling your dress with a gorgeous heel to a casual look with a white sneaker or summer slide. We've chosen three dresses that could be worn to the Races, a wedding, engagement party or a work Christmas function.

Of course, be sure to tag us on Instagram in your gorgeous looks with #obriensspringracing as we'd love to see what you have put together.

Pretty in Peach

Pretty In Peach - This is one of the more classic looks for race day. An elegant, floral dress that oozes femininity, paired with soft tones of peachy pinks and gold. Accessories are of course key to this look, we suggest pairing this stunning Bonita Dress by Australian brand, Alessandra with the Tahlia beaded headband, a matching strappy heel, and the Elms + King Bowery Bag.  

Natural Instinct

Natural Instinct - This Spring season Leopard print as well as other animal prints have been present in many Spring/Summer collections and what better print than a striking Leo print for a race day outfit. When it comes to Cup day, think colour, colour, colour...we've paired this stunning midi dress by Verge with bold contrasting electric blue bag & earrings to make the outfit pop. With that pair your frock with a tonal blazer and heel to round out the perfect look.  

Monochromatic

Monochromatic -  Black and White is a classic dress code for the Spring racing season. You can either go all black, all white or our favourite is combining the two with a red lip & nails. Structure and tailoring are also key looks to a sophisticated race day outfit. We absolutely this Joseph Ribkoff Dress paired with the Loobie's story white tailored jacket.
