The last day of the Spring Racing Carnival is Stakes Day and it’s all about family. The Fashions on the Field is aimed at the youth. Looks are a little more relaxed and fun. If you have gone traditional racing attire all week this is your chance to wear something a little fun and a little different.
You’ll see more maxi-dresses on Stakes Day. Even a few more whimsical thoughts played out in the looks of the day. Not only is this a good chance to get away with wearing that fabulous maxi-dress, it’s a good time to try tribal prints and for the very brave woman a gorgeous pair of palazzo pants can even be worn.
Here’s a few thoughts on what would look great for Stakes Day this year.
A Relaxed Vibe: Stakes Day is more relaxed, day dresses, wrap dresses and even the maxi can be worn. These blue and green shades would be lovely for a fantastic Spring day at the track with the family. Keep it cool and comfortable yet stylish. I think the maxi is gorgeous and the dress with the girl holding the yellow scarf is quite pretty too. In fact a good shift dress is perfect for Stakes Day. Clean and classic lines.
Warm and Whimsical: More big, bold and beautiful ideas for Stakes Day. It is Spring after all, so keep it fun and fresh. As long as you don’t dress like you are headed to the night club, you should be fine. This is also a chance to wear flatter shoes or wedges which will give your feet a break after a week of heels and trying to balance on the lawn.
What I Would Wear: I have adored this Ralph Lauren look from the first time I saw it last year and Stakes Day is a perfect day to wear it. Pants for a race day during Spring Carnival is a little risky but I think this pair is so lovely that I wouldn’t be able to resist. The entire look is all about Spring. So much so that everyone will be coveting how fabulous you look.
Spring Racing Carnival is over. Hope you tipped a winner. On the track and with your fashions.
