What to Wear to the Races | AD

Towards the end of May, I will *hopefully* be going to the races. And of course, such an occasion means a new dress! But of course, this always comes with its difficulties. Finding the right dress for the races can be very difficult, but I will hopefully have made things that little bit easier for you. I have put together a few of my favourites from Coast. Your one stop, dress shop for beautiful styles and detailing.

The Midi Dresses

Coast Midi Dresses for the Races

I have to admit, that in terms of dress choices I am swaying more towards a midi dress. I never usually go for midi dresses as I’m just not used to wearing them. But I think that they look really classy, making them perfect to wear to the races. I am loving the bardot shoulder midi dress as I think you can add bold pops of colour to it with your fascinator and shoes. The floaty Jamie dress is another great pick for the races as it gives off definite summer vibes. The Eileen dress is slightly more of a statement with its bold print and dark top. I think you could definitely pair this with a matching navy fascinator and block-heeled sandals.

The Floral Dresses

You can never go wrong with florals! They are my favourite print to go for as I think they are just so easy to style because the styling has basically all be done for you. It also means that a floral dress will be the statement piece of your outfit so everything else you wear with it can be kept to a simple style. My favourite dress of the three is the Francesca with its cute bow belt! I love how the flowers on this dress are actually adding a little bit of texture. Can you imagine how lush this dress would look paired with pink heels and a pink fascinator?! I am so tempted to go with this dress for my outfit!

The Statement Dresses

Palm Dress | Aurora Dress | Roseanna Dress

If a statement headpiece or fascinator isn’t your cup of tea, why not go for a statement dress instead. You can pair either of these dresses with very simple accessories, as the dress itself makes the outfit. I love the hemlines of each of these dresses as it really makes them stand out against their bold prints. These are the types of dresses that will get you spotted in a crowd, that is for sure! The mesh detailing on the top of the Aurora dress gives it a beautifully delicate touch that also takes away the need for a necklace! The Roseanna dress has the most gorgeous waterfall style hemline, that is super flattering! Paired with metallic heels, it is a beautiful outfit.

Those are my top choices for dresses for the races. Midi, floral and statement dresses, that can all hopefully give you a little bit of inspiration for your own outfit choices!
