Dressing the Part for Horse Racing Events in 2016


There are many exciting events that are set to take place in 2016 and one type of event that is certain to prove popular with both men and women is horse racing. Horse races are always well attended and provide a traditional and exciting form of entertainment for people of all ages. There are various meets and races already in place for the coming year so racing fans have plenty to look forward to.

Of course, if you are planning on attending some of these events in 2016 it is always important to plan ahead. This way you not only get to ensure that you have transport and accommodation sorted early on where necessary but also that you don’t experience the disappointment of not being able to get tickets for the races and meets that you really want to go to.

Planning what to wear

Another thing that you need to consider when planning your horse racing itinerary is what to wear to these events and meets. Major events such as Ascot now have strict dress codes in place when it comes to special days such as Ladies’ Day so you need to ensure that you dress appropriately. It is always a good idea to check and see whether there is any specific dress code in place for the event that you are attending beforehand.

One major event taking place is the Cheltenham Festival, which will be a huge event for racing fans over the coming year. Many people are all lined up for Cheltenham Festival 2016 and will be eager for March to roll around. Many are already heading to sites such as Betway in order to keep up with the latest racing news and information in preparation for this event. Betway also provides the perfect solution for those that cannot attend the event itself, as you can keep up with the action, check the odds, and even place bets on the races at Cheltenham. Ladies Day will take place on March 16th 2016 so if you are planning to invest in a new outfit now is the time to start thinking about what to buy. An elegant dress that is knee length or longer is a great choice, as you won’t look over the top but you can still enjoy being able to dress up. Bear in mind that it is still pretty cold in March so making sure you have a smart jacket to wear on top is advisable.

If you are planning to attend Royal Ascot in June 2016, you can take advantage of the warmer weather so you can enjoy more flexibility when it comes to what you wear. However, you do need to ensure that you stick to the dress codes that are in place otherwise you could find yourself suffering the embarrassment of not being able to enter or having to get changed! This is a race where you can really glam up and is much a fashion event as a racing one these days. Getting your hair and makeup just right is all part and parcel of getting ready for Royal Ascot Ladies’ Day but make sure you don’t go over the top with the makeup. Keep it more on the subtle side rather than layering it on, as otherwise you could find that the warm weather coupled with the amount of time you will be at the course leaves you looking a little worse for wear over the course of the day.
