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.
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!
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.
