Fashion

Fabulous fashion and horse racing go together like Hugh Bowman and Winx and there’s no better place to experiment with style than at the races. The inaugural Golden Eagle is going to be the biggest race day at Rosehill Gardens this Spring, and we can expect to see some incredible outfits for the occasion.

Millinery is arguably the most important element of any race day outfit because it’s what’s sets it apart from any other event. A wide brimmed straw or sinnamay hat in a neutral colour will create a sophisticated look that never goes out of style. Padded headbands in bright colours are so hot right now and clips (lots of them) are on trend, easy to wear and ideal if you’re going out after the races.

With the rise of androgynous fashion, the pants suit has made a major comeback. It combines style and comfort which is invaluable for a long day at the races. The pants must be full length to meet ATC members’ dress regulations.

Statement sleeves, clashing prints and clear accessories round out Spring racing’s top trends.

For the gentlemen, classic tailoring is king this Spring. Stick to quality, natural fibres and ensure the suit fits well. Patterns are in, especially checks. For something a little different try the “broken suit” – mismatched jacket and pants.

Those wishing to spend time in the members’ areas must wear a suit jacket, collared shirt and tie. Socks must also be worn, even with loafers.
