Spring is like:

With it comes clean homes (lol jokes, ain’t nobody got time for that), extra sunlight and most importantly, ‘Gramable flora. 

For many though, the fetchest element of Spring is: 

RACING SEASON, GURL.

We understand that horse racing isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but for those who’re all about fashurn and rubbing shoulders with celebs, there ain’t nothing better. 

For the aforementioned (peeps that are all like ‘yasssss, zomg Spra-ring rah-ay-zing’) we thought we’d throw together a lil’ something-something on styles for the season.

To cover all bases (for those who aren’t terribly fazed with the whole thing), we didn’t want to just highlight looks exclusively for the series. Instead, we’re showcasing pieces that can be worn for all occasions interchangeably, as well as styles inspired by the season that can be sported everyday. 

We called upon the gawjus darlings at Beginning Boutique to point us in the right direction of what’s hawt and what’s naht.

“I would definitely say younger people are moving away from traditional race-day styles with less headwear and shorter hemlines,” says Sarah Timmerman – owner of Beginning Boutique.

“But with this comes more daring styles that are refreshing to see.” 

THE JUMPSUIT

If you don’t like jumpsuits, well, we don’t want to know you.

For those who do, check out these bad-boys:

“Jumpsuits are a great spring wardrobe addition that can easily transition from work or weekend wear to a classic race wear look that’ll sweep everyone off their feet. Opting for a neutral shade will allow for your accessories to do all the talking, whether it’s printed flats and a blazer for the office, or strappy heels and a headpiece for the races.” 

WRAP DRESSES

Wrap Dresses are so, like, on-trend/fleek/point this Spring.

“Wrap Dresses are everywhere at the moment and I think this style is going to easily transition to race wear. Super long straps mean the dress can be tired a hundred ways – halter, sleeved, one shoulder – anyway you like.”

“This is perfect for someone who is attending a few Spring Racing events and doesn’t want to splash out on a new outfit each time. Simply change the way you wrap it, add some different accessories and it’s as good as new.”

STATEMENT SUNGLASSES


They’re fierce as all hell and something worthwhile getting your paws on.

“Statement sunglasses are a must-have accessory this Spring. They will make any outfit stand out and are very practical if it’s a sunny day on the track.”
