Lindauer Style Series

The Race That Stops the Nation (well, technically two nations….) might have come and gone, but racing season has only just got going here in NZ! With two more major race days just here in Auckland, plus more nationally, there is still plenty of occasions to frock up and strut your stuff around the race-track (or is that just the horses?)

I’m heading to the track on Feb 28th for Derby Day at Ellerslie Races and I need to find an outfit stat! So whilst I’ve been doing the research for me, I thought I’d share with you a couple of different options for the races, at a couple of different price points – something for everyone!

Racewear under $150 _ ChasingCait

SHOP THE LOOK: St Frock godess maxi in Geisha print $69 | Forever New “Kelly heels” $49.95 | Colette Hayman floral garland $9.95 – TOTAL: $128.90

This bright dress (belt is separate) is perfect for a Summer race day! Continue the floral theme with a headpiece rather than a hat or fascinator – bright shoes complete the look, a delicate shoe works best with this full-on print.

Racewear under $300_Chasing Cait

SHOP THE LOOK: Alannah Hill “Kiss Me, Chase Me” Dress $249 | Colette by Colette Hayman wide brim hat $15 | Spurr from The Iconic “Khloe” peep toe heels $19.94 

Florals always work for the races. This STUNNING dress from Alannah Hill will show off curves if you have them, and give them to you if you don’t! Simple and classic accessories will compliment, without outshining this gorgeous dress.

Racewear under $600_Chasing Cait

SHOP THE LOOK: Trelise Cooper “Butterfly Kisses” dress $419 | Mr W & Me “Chance Encounter” heels $30 | Johnny Loves Rosie fascinator from Asos $72.91

I’m LOVING this print from Trelise Cooper (this is definitely a contender for my race day look!) – Try some different accessories than you normally would. Bold, black pieces will make this print pop, and give your look a cool edge.
