WHAT TO WEAR ON RACE DAY - KNOWING THE DIFERENCE BETWEEN DAY WEAR AND EVENING WEAR 2021

  1. Race day Fashion is very simple but elegant day wear.  Not a lot of skin showing, and modesty is the key.
  2. Plan your outfits in advance.  Judges will be awarding points according to coherence and thought that has gone into the outfit, together with the knowledge of appropriateness of the outfit.
  3. Avoid anything too tight, revealing or midriff-baring , dresses need to fall at the knee or lower and keep in mind that the races are a daytime event.
  4. A headpiece is always important to coordinate with your outfit. Think carefully of how your hair sits with your headpiece or hat. Typically for a headpiece, long hair is pulled away, pinned or in a ponytail so that it works with your hair. Remember, you are trying to achieve an overall effect – the hat should be part of the outfit.
  5. This is a time to embrace the best of spring! There is no wrong or right when it comes to a beautifully coordinated outfit.
  6. You will be getting judged on a points system this year on cup day.
  7. Points will be given on the appropriateness of your outfit, day wear, tidy shoes, clutch, hair/ millinery, and overall outfit.
  8. You will never get judged on your age, your size, or your looks. Here at Riccarton Park we would like to encourage women and men of all shapes and sizes to enter the fashion competition and support each other through this process.
  9. For our gentlemen - dress to impress!  A well-tailored/ fitted suit and wearing your shoes without socks is fine. Keep it stylish and smart with tie or patterned pocket squares.  You may also consider a cool hat to go with your suit. Overall a clean and polished look.
