A Day at the Races with Robert Goddard

Going to the races this season? Find your perfect outfit at Robert Goddard at The Water Gardens! A day at the races is the perfect occasion for getting glammed up and really dressing up to the nines. If you're looking for some inspiration for your race day outfit, Robert Goddard are here to help.

What's the dress code?

Race day attire is definitely classed as formal wear, similar to what you might wear to a wedding or christening. Think elegance and class! For ladies, midi or maxi dresses are a great option whereas men might opt for a two or three piece suit, after all, if the ladies are getting dolled up why shouldn't you?

Be sure to double check whether your race has a set dress code too, you don't want to rock up in something that's banned and miss all the fun!

Women's race day styling

The races are the perfect excuse to go all out with your outfit, and we think bold and bright colours are a great way to make a statement! Races are the perfect way to start summer so why not bring summer with you with gorgeous florals and summery patterns too?

Our top picks for the races are definitely the Sorrento Lemo Dress from Great Plains and French Connection's Aimee Inu Front Split Midi Dress. Both of these dresses just ooze class with their flattering cuts, and what could be more summery than their bright colours? All that's left now is the right pair of heels and - of course - a fascinator!

Men's race day styling

For men, a suit is the perfect option for the races, but you could always opt to make it  little more casual by swapping out the trousers  for fitted chinos or jeans too! The blazer and shirt are the most important parts of the outfit to keep it formal, but just like the women, it's great to keep it fun and contemporary as well! 

We'd suggest either the Slim Fit Checked Suit by Antique Rogue with it's fun but subtle pattern, or the Ted Baker Severnn Cotton Super Soft Blazer, perfect to cool in the warmer weather.
