Trackside trends for the biggest horseracing event of the year.
3 chic buys to wear at the Dubai races
Taking place at the end of March, the Dubai World Cup is one of the most significant and glamorous events on the annual calendar.
Attracting A-list names and royals from near and far, those in attendance dress in their most elegant attire with impeccably styled outfits and artful hats – it is the world’s richest horse race, after all.
Look the part and maybe even lift the crown in this year’s Best Dressed stakes with our round-up of what to wear for a day at the horse racing.
Asymmetric dress, Monse at Boutique 1, visit Mall of the Emirates
Style tip: It will likely be a long day from start to finish, so you need to be comfortable in what you are wearing. While that skintight bodycon might show off the many hours you’ve spent in the gym, we advise going for a looser silhouette so that you can eat, drink and mingle without having to suck in your tummy all day.
Wedge sandals, Gucci at Harvey Nichols Dubai, visit Mall of the Emirates
Style tip: Can’t bear the thought of teetering around in stilettos all day? We get it. Wearing embellished sandals, flats or bright wedges is perfectly acceptable – your feet will thank you for it.
Style tip: Do team your dress with a fabulous hat, hairband or fascinator for the races. It’s perhaps the only day of the year where you’ll get the opportunity to wear a hat, so have fun with whatever you pick out. If you can’t get to grips with the thought of hat hair, pin back your locks with a statement slide or opt for a satin Alice band.
