Goodwood Day concludes the Adelaide Autumn Racing Carnival with the feature sprint being the richest race on the calendar. It’s time to let your hair down and celebrate the end of fantastic three weekends of back to back racing so we’ve put together some charmingly casual looks for you to try out.
Bold and daring yet comfortable all day, this outfit is the perfect balance of fashion and fun. The best part about wearing a jumpsuit is that you don’t have to worry about co-ordinating a top with bottoms, it’s already done for you which means less time planning what to wear… right??? Just make sure you try your jumpsuit on for size before heading out the door. They vary in body length from brand to brand so taller ladies you may need to shop around for the right one for your height.
The animal print trend comes and goes and while it’s fun to play with we think adding just a hint of it gives a nice touch without going over the top. Pairing this wide belt with matching black accessories instantly adds an element of fun. Play around with darker lipstick and shades of eye shadow in the cooler months to add a moody tone to your look.
This tailored look is a modern twist on a retro design that can be worn out on the weekend or to a casual raceday. Complementing the rich pomegranate wide leg pantsuit is a soft flattering grey cape and matching felt boater. A detailed neckline and statement belt bring together the modern element of this 70’s inspired ensemble.
It takes some practice to get the art of mixing prints right but if you’re heading to the track it’s the perfect opportunity to step outside your comfort zone and give it a go. Steve wears two complimenting colour themes, blues and browns, which keeps the feel of this outfit subtle yet stylish. The easiest way to mix prints is use the same pattern but vary the size. The top, blazer and pocket square are variations of a tartan or checked pattern.
he beauty of the bow tie is that it allows you to mix it up and have some fun without losing your level of formality. They let you express some individuality in a sea of standard straight ties.
The little details can take a good outfit and make it a head turner with the addition of some very easy to source accessories. Bracelets, watches and lapel pins are a great way to add an individual touch to your outfit without breaking the bank.
A hat really does complete an outfit but more often than not men shy away from adding this element when they attend the races. Steve’s flat cap is perfect for an autumn day and is a versatile choice if you want to start with a smaller sized hat.
As we move down to the tail end of Steve’s outfit you can see he has left nothing to chance when planning what to put on his feet. By sticking with the same colour theme something as simple as laces, shoes and even socks will put the finishing touches on an already dapper outfit.
