Race Day Ready with Auckland Racing Club

One of the reasons why I love the racing season so much is because it is one of the few times of the year where New Zealanders truly celebrate bold fashion. It is a time and place where we feel confident to put our best fashion self forward. We’re not particularly known for our bright and bold style, yet the grounds of Ellerslie Racecourse during a race day would certainly say otherwise.


The talent behind the dramatic head pieces and statement accessories is incredible and I feel inspired watching all the milliners and DIYers put their crafty skills to the test, creating exquisite features from all sorts of bits and bobs.

Twilight Races, Boxing Day Races, Derby Day … the calendar is back to back. I love the mix and mingle atmosphere and the way the different events bring together a diverse mix of racing enthusiasts, fashion style stars and those who are out for a new social experience.

Twilight Races is next up on Thursday 12th December from 3:30pm and attracts a younger after work crowd. The fashion is slightly more relaxed with a fun evening racing meets cocktail vibe. Incorporate the bright colours or go for bold textures, interesting layering and a simple headpiece or headband.
