Or­ange is the new black at race day

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

LOOK­ING GOOD: Fash­ions on the Field are al­ways a high­light on race day. FOR some peo­ple horses are just a back­ground fea­ture and dresses, shoes and fas­ci­na­tors are the main at­trac­tion at the track.

A lot of thought goes into a race day out­fit and some say there’s even more in­volved than just cloth­ing.

Hair­dresser Debby Ford said hair could make or break an out­fit.

“If you are wear­ing a strap­less dress, the lady’s hair must be down and flow­ing but if the top has a full col­lar or she is wear­ing a coat, the hair must be up and on dis­play,” Mrs Ford said.

She said colour was also im­por­tant and although or­ange was the new black, all warm colours should be em­braced.

“Warm colours are in fash­ion and with the win­ter winds around, warmth is ev­ery­thing,” she said.

Although a frock was of­ten the most popular choice for ladies on the race track, Mrs Ford urged women to branch out and be cre­ative with their style.

“Race­go­ers have looked stunning in tight-fit­ting skirts and designer jeans as well.”

For­mer fash­ion con­sul­tant, Pas­tor Carol Palmer said fas­ci­na­tors, hats and other ac­ces­sories were just as im­por­tant as the dress.

“Match­ing shoes, bags and clutches are sim­ple ac­ces­sories and can make a huge dif­fer­ence,” Ms Palmer said.

She agreed warm, win­ter colours were “in” and per­fect for a race day out­fit.

“Win­ter colours are warm and ex­cit­ing and make you feel great about your­self,” she said.

No mat­ter what style or colour cho­sen, Ms Palmer said the races were a fan­tas­tic op­por­tu­nity to dress up and have some fun.

The Gayn­dah Cup Race Day will be held on Satur­day, June 6.

Event or­gan­is­ers said ev­ery­thing was on track and to ex­pect it to be a suc­cess­ful day for all who turned up. For more in­for­ma­tion visit www.gayn­dahraces.com
