Spare yourself a hasty, unplanned trip to the mall by getting in early on the hot trends of the racing season. Bright pops of colour and gorgeous understated headpieces will go a long way, so don’t stress about the perfect dress – we’ve got you covered from head to toe.

Splash of colour

This season’s expect colour on colour and print on print styling mixed back with sophisticated tailoring and neutral bases. Neon blocking is the new colour blocking, forget the tacky eighties - this is a fresh modern trend that you’ll be seeing a lot more of on the race track. If you want to tone down the brightness, splashes of neon paired back with soft faded pastels create a bright and lively palette.

Time for florals

Expect to see floral prints making a seasonal comeback, either in the form of a flashy headpiece or beautiful flower wreaths. For the cool weather that tends to sneak up you might want to bring along a floral blazer, another hot trend straight from the catwalk. Combine watercolour floral print skirt with a plain silky top, or go for a more abstract paisley floral blouse and pair it with a simple cream pencil skirt.

Make a statement

Stand out from the crowd by adopting a statement piece that will define your look. Work your outfit around statement jewellery, striking patterns and unusual embroidery. A simple dress with a chunky necklace and headpiece will leave you looking enviably chic. Alternatively, a loud hot pink number with paisley floral will be complemented nicely with accessories in a muted, pale pink shade. Simple shapes and bright colour combos are eye-catching and reminiscent of a fresh sunny spring day!

Flirty & feminine

Cinched waists of the 50s are back in, and peplums are one of the most prominent trends around at the moment. So celebrate your shape with a red pinch waist dress and ruffled peplum. Fanned skirts are also proving a popular choice for the racing season. A simple, bodice dress with a scooped neckline can really give your look texture and versatility.
