Luxurious wintery fabrics, layered ensembles in jewel tones and rich hues, smoky eyes and crimson lips…. I love the cooler seasons for racing fashion!

As we are well into the chilly seasons, I have taken some time to identify five popular trends seen at the track this autumn and winter.

Enjoy!

1) The Colour Mustard

The hot colour of this season looks like yellow/mustard. Whether it be a dress, pants, skirt or used as the finishing touches with accessories and millinery, mustard has been a stand out colour choice for many race enthusiasts.

2) Jacquard / Lux Fabrics

My favourite thing about winter wear are the gorgeous fabrics. Jacquard fabrics are beautiful, as the print is woven into the fabric, sometimes creating a 3D effect. I love how many of the jacquard fabrics have metallic through them, giving them a deeper, more luxurious feel and they look stunning on stage. I also love funky plaid fabrics too!

3) Tulle

Even though it is winter, tulle is still a trending feature seen at many race days. Styled correctly, tulle looks great for a winter look when paired with heavier fabrics or with the right styling. I love a tulle skirt paired with a tailored jacket, or top with feature sleeves.

4) Blouse Under Dress

Wearing a long sleeve blouse under your dress is great for two reasons. Firstly, it can make a spring/summer style outfit autumn/winter appropriate. Secondly, it gives your outfit a whole new look, providing a contrast in fabrics, colours and added texture.
