With spring racing season upon us, it’s time to dust off the fascinators and put the winter wardrobe back in storage.
Doll yourself up, grab some friends, and get ready for a fun day out in the great weather. With all the major fashion weeks happening around the globe, we’ve analysed the best of the best to bring you the key trends for this season.
In spring, you can never go wrong with florals – after all, what’s more spring than flowers? Florals instantly become the statement of your piece, requiring little extra in the way of accessories. Straight from the street style of Milan Fashion Week, head towards darker florals with pops of colour, like this Drape Dress from Sara. Alternatively, go for florals in lace fabric like this Crinkled Lace Dress.
Flowing dresses are not only super flattering on curves, but are also comfortable! Mixing florals with a flowing silhouette will create an ultimate girly appeal, and these two trends go beautifully together. Try this Gingham Shirt Dress. Kaftans are another great option, especially paired with a neutral pair of pants and bright prints, like this Kaftan Tunic.
It’s a bit oxymoronic to have both tailored and flowing as trends in one season, isn’t it? But tailored here refers more to clean-cut pants, ones that will follow and flatter your figure. Pair either a neutral shade of pants with a bright tunic, or swap it around and make the pants the feature. These pants come in both blue gingham and florals, and are both stylish and sophisticated.
When picking out what to wear, always bear in mind the dress requirements. The general admission rules only require you to be neatly dressed and groomed, but the members’ dress code is stricter. For women, steer clear of untailored pants, denim, jumpsuits, and midriff-baring clothes. For men, tailored pants, dress shoes, a collared shirt, tie, and smart jacket are the uniform. Of course, when choosing shoes for the ladies, keep in mind that you’ll be walking over grass!
