Fashion on the Field competitions are a popular part of local race meetings, and are an excellent way of showcasing a race goer’s style and flair.
While entering Fashions of the Field is becoming increasingly popular with race goers, there are a few guidelines generally followed by judges that contenders should take into account when composing their outfit.
The key to a successful outfit is appropriateness; it must fall squarely in the category of race wear as well as suiting the season.
The term “race wear” incorporates classic, elegant styles – avoid anything tight, revealing, strapless or midriff baring. Do however consider trouser or a jumpsuit, but the same rules apply for length – not shorts. Also keep in mind that races are a daytime event, so be wary of material and shapes that spell out evening, like sequins or high shine materials.
