Fashion at Santa Anita Park…
There will be a lot going on all day at Santa Anita so you will want to dressed and ready for all the fun events on race day. The Californian weather is sure to be nice and in the low 70’s so lighten up your look with a little bit of lace. You don’t need as heavy of a fabric as you would in other parts of the country in the winter. However, this doesn’t mean that it is spring quite yet so it is not time to go full on in a spring trend. Lace is the perfect transitional fabric for a winter to spring. Try a fit and flare coral colored lace dress. If you like a more form fitted style, try a black lace sheath dress or a navy dress. If lace all over is too much for you try lace separates like a lace top or skirt. You can even try a lace hat to complete your Robert B. Lewis look.
Your lace look will carry you from race to race to The Chandelier Room and the Infield Fan Fest!
