Tips for race day
WHEN thinking about the races, two things will generally come to mind: the horses and the fashions on the field.
This year is no different.
Fashions on the field co-ordinator Narelle Emmerton said the competition played an important part in race days.
“When you get two race days a year it’s always great for the ladies and gentleman to be able to get dressed up,” Mrs Emmerton said.
“I think it is just a good excuse for it because we don’t often get the chance to, it’s great to have a reason.”
Mrs Emmerton said the fashions on the field were designed to bring a little fun and humour to the day.
When it came to picking the right outfit, Mrs Emmerton had some tips.
“Keep it classy, especially because it is winter, maybe think about which hat or fascinator is a winter accessory,” Mrs Emmerton said.
“It’s not so much about how long or short the dress is, it’s more about the class of the whole outfit itself.”
