The horse-racing season is already in motion.
Whether you’re prepping for Sandown’s “Ladies Day” or Royal Ascot, our Whitehouse Cox ladies have surrendered their top style secrets to ensure you step out in style this upcoming race day.
With warmer weather appearing and summer just around the corner, race days are out in full swing.
We have already had the Grand National, of course, but there are plenty more fabulous events still to come!
For our Whitehouse Cox team, race days are the perfect opportunity to put on our finest outfits and feel our very best.
In this article, we’ve put together some of our top race day style tips to ensure you’re the best turned out guest of the day.
Comfortable Yet Stylish
This tip particularly applies to your shoe choice – though it should be thought of in every aspect of your outfit.
You’re going to be on your feet a lot throughout the day, so picking an uncomfortable shoe definitely isn’t a wise idea.
If you’re unsure of how you’d cope in a pair of towering high heels, opt for something a little more sensible. A classic wedge or even a kitten heel both make great options.
Make sure you’ve worn your shoes around the house before heading out to break them in, don’t pick a size too small or too large for you and keep plenty of blister plasters ready in your handbag!
Our Whitehouse Cox ladies never attend a raceday without their makeup to hand.
It can get pretty hot, so you don’t want all your perfectly applied makeup to start slipping off your face!
Our Whitehouse Cox eyebrow pencil case is the perfect addition to your race day makeup kit. Slim, sleek and stylish, this will fit in your eyebrow pencils, mascaras and lip liners.
It’s also small enough to fit in your clutch – perfect!
Pick a Hat or Headpiece
Even if it’s not mandatory, we always adore the chance to wear a hat or headpiece to a race day.
Ensure you know what style suits you best and always double-check that it’s securely fastened before you leave for race day. You don’t want it flying off in the wind half-way through your day!
Our Favourite Colour Choices
When it comes to race day, our Whitehouse Cox ladies know that colour choice is important.
We opt for lighter, summery colours – anything from pastel yellow to a beautiful turquoise make our list.
If you are a little wary of bright, bold colours, white is always a brilliant choice. Nude shades are also a fabulous option for a glamorous race day look.
You can always add a pop of colour with matching accessories, such as our Whitehouse Cox Zip Round Coin Purse in red.
Consider incorporating the colour palette with your nail varnish, makeup, and accessories, for a truly impeccable finish.
