Article by Caitlin Taylor

Spring racing season is fast approaching, and whether you're staying here in NZ, or heading across the ditch, it's a fun excuse to frock up!

But where to start? There are so many options and so many conflicting rules on what to (and what not to) wear.

So I wanted to give you some quick ideas on your choice of frock, plus I've added some expert Race Day Style Tips at the bottom too!

Fab Race Day Frocks

#1-Below the knee hems are much classier for race day, it's not a night club!

#2-Wear some headwear of some sort (hat, fascinator)

#3-Heels that you can walk in ALL day are a must

#4-Accessories make the outfit. Spend time finding shoes, a headpiece and a handbag that compliment your frock

#5-Have fun! Try a jumpsuit rather than a dress

Dressing up for the races is the best part don't you think? (horses? what horses?) so I hope I've given you some great ideas from the lovely retailers here at Shore City, we've got your style stakes covered!

Until Next Time, Happy Shopping!
