What to Wear to Student Race Day Part 1: Beth

Last week I had the pleasure of styling the lovely Beth who is a student at the ANU and getting ready for her first internship. She is attending the Students Race Day at Thoroughbred Park on Friday 5th October which is her very first race day. I met up with Beth and helped her put together 3 options for her race day outfit and gave her the 101 on race wear styling.

Students race day is a lot of fun but there is still a dress code to abide to when putting together your outfit but that still expresses your own individual style. If you're unsure of the guidelines check them out on Thorougbred Park's website. 

Beth was very open to colour and was happy to try different styles but wanted to keep things youthful and a little modern which is why we opted for a skirt and top combo.

Beth instantly fell in love with this red skirt from ZARA and thought she would get a lot of wear out of it as it suited her personal style perfectly! So we teamed it up with a cropped lace top with a singlet underneath to make it appropriate for race wear. Beth is quite tall so she was showing a bit of skin, which normally should be avoided for the races, however, cropped tops are a current trend so she could get away with it so long as she wasn't planning on entering Fashions on The Field.

For head wear we opted for this cute red head scarf which really gave the look the youthful and playful look Beth was after. A head scarf is a really easy way to add a trend element to your outfit without having to invest in a whole new outfit. A pop of red lipstick would be perfect makeup feature and a pair of gold statement earrings would add a touch of glam. 

The second option we loved was this gold skirt which we teamed up with the same lace cropped top and we experimented with the turban look with a different head scarf. The straw box clutch adds another fun element to the look. 

The last look is classic spring race wear and perfect for day dressing yet this dress could be worn over and over again which stays true to one of my golden styling rules! Although Beth preferred the red skirt combo she would certainly look the part and turn heads in this more classic look. 

I can't wait to see all the fashion at Thoroughbred Park at Students Race Day. Don't forget, registrations for men and women's Fashions on the Field is from 12.30pm-2pm with the first heats from 3pm.

What do you think? Which is your favourite look?
