A day out at the races can be a very exciting social event, it's not something that comes around often and provides the perfect opportunity to get dressed up. Our Invitations by Veni Infantino collection has a wide range of occasion wear outfits which are ideally suited to race attire. To help you narrow down your options, we’ve put together our top picks when it comes to perfect dresses for a day at the races.
The races can be a great time to experiment and play with colour. As they are usually held in the warmer, sunnier months you can opt for brighter and more vivid colours that you wouldn’t consider in other seasons. Yellow can be a great colour for the races which is why we’ve picked style 29661 as our first race day dress. A feminine and floaty A-line dress creates a great silhouette that will also provide comfort all day. ¾ blouson sleeves and a high neckline create a relaxed yet put together outfit that's sure to have you featured in the best dressed highlights. If you feel that yellow is slightly too bold for your style, you're spoilt for choice with four other colours to choose from.
Florals can also be a fabulous choice for a day at the races. Even better they work great as a wedding guest outfit that you can recycle and wear again after race day. 29664A is a feminine, floral option with a striking off-the-shoulder neckline. The long blouson sleeves, waist tie detail and A-line skirt create a flattering and relaxed silhouette on a variety of body types. Vibrant colours make the style the ideal choice for a summer’s day at the races.
If you’re looking for a traditional A-line, tea dress design, 29665 is the style for you. The classic A-line silhouette is artfully complimented with a modern and stylish combined mikado and mesh striped fabric. Sophisticated cape sleeves and a round neckline create an elegant and chic look that will meet the dress code of any races event. Available in the bold and modern colours of Aqua, Cherry Pink, Coral, and Ivory to keep you on trend.
Alternatively, to an A-line silhouette, a fitted and knee length dress can be a great choice for a day at the races. A sophisticated and elegant option, style 29666S is perfect for a more formal race day. With its statement one shoulder blouson sleeve style 29666S is a modern twist on a classic fitted silhouette. Available in colours Magenta and Teal this a bold option for a confident woman.
Style 29678 is a great, traditional A-line dress with a little something extra that makes it ideal for a day at the races. The pleated design throughout and pussy bow neckline keep the classic silhouette modern and stylish. Long blouson sleeves create a relaxed look perfect for a summer’s day.
Another great knee length, fitted option, style 29670 is a race day showstopper. A crepe, one-shoulder dress with a unique and distinctive ruffle detail this style is bound to turn heads at the racecourse. Available in six colours this dress gives you the chance to customise to your preference. Make a bold statement in our vivid Magenta, Coral or Teal or opt for a more subtle and traditional Baby Blue, Navy, or Silver.
Races fashion does not necessarily dictate that ladies must wear a dress; in many cases a trouser set can be just as chic and elegant. If you would prefer a trouser suit, style 29681 is the perfect choice for you. A stylish trouser and top set with a ruffled shoulder detail and drape detail that keeps the look formal and sophisticated. A waistband detail finishes the look and creates a great silhouette for any body type. Available in five fabulous colours this set is sure to win you best dressed!
We hope we have been able to provide you with all the race day outfit inspiration you needed.
