Since Santa Anita Park is in California, try a little bit of California style for your race day look. This season, fringe and boho chic are very in style and fortunately fit perfectly with the laid-back California style. Try fringe on your handbags or shoes or even fringe jewelry or scarves, and pair it with neutral colors and bohemian-inspired maxi dresses or denim. Take inspiration from what celebs wear to all of the summer music festivals. Check out Oliva Palermo and Kate Hudson for such celebrity inspiration.
