Spring Racing 2018 – Recommendations from The Fitting Room

by Madeline Van Eeghen

Racing season isn’t simply an opportunity to combine a social occasion with the potential to make a little extra money – it’s also the perfect chance to ramp up your style game, cranking things up a notch and showing your impeccable taste.

But, for some men, especially the uninitiated, dressing for the races can be a daunting affair. When it comes to your attire, you’ve got to know how to play the game just right. Whether you’re the modern man, the classic gent or the high-spirited risk taker, it all comes down to immaculate grooming, sophisticated suiting and tasteful accessorising.

If choosing the right attire for the races gives you chills, worry not! We are here to your rescue. Here’s our gentleman’s guide to what to wear this racing season.

Keep it neutral

If you want to keep it safe yet still look classic, keep to a light neutral tone, topped with an bright accent in accessories. Grey, beige, earth tones complement most people.

Keep it cool

White is the new black this season. However, white suits look horrible if they are too tight, so make sure they are fitting correctly. Be careful with grass stains and red wine, they’re not likely gong to come out of the fabric.Keep your accessories tonal rather than too contrasting.

Be stylishly sun safe

Well-chosen sunglasses and hat will not only keep you covered from UV rays, but always finish off any look. Make sure you choose shapes that suits your face, rather than going for what’s the latest trend. Classy never goes out of style.

On the closing note we recommend you to keep it elegant with the charm of the yesteryears, and at the same time don’t shy away from keeping your style statement contemporary and you will be guaranteed to turn some heads with your sartorial appeal.

Hope that your bets are on point and your favourite horses make you some quick bucks!
