Hats are a must at any race, and why not, it’s not every day that one gets to wear these ultra stylish pieces. Today women are experimenting with colour blocked hats, along with monochromatic ones. Get inspired from the vintage oversized hats with a covering or veil, however try to own more hats that suit the outfit to give out an understated and classy look. The big brimmed hats are more fun and risqué, especially if you happen to have beads, feathers, silk flowers, decorative scarves or quirky additions as small crystal horses, bells, snakeskin or stuffed birds in them.

Tea-Length Skirts

And they are back! The midi skirt may be the ultimate transition piece, the tea-length between midi and maxi is the statement piece this race wear.
