What to wear to the 2014 Juddmonte International Stakes…
For English racing, the dress is actually a bit casual. This doesn’t mean that you can come in with jeans and a t-shirt; you will still want to dress like a proper lady. As summer comes to a close try one last summer favorite, the halter neckline. Just make sure the halter is not too showy and that you chose a halter neck that has thicker straps to maintain a lady like look. Try a classic white halter dress, which is fashionable, clean, and classy. Another great option is a floral halter dress. You could also try a loose fitting elegant nude halter dress. Pair your halter looks with a hat with a bit of a brim to balance out your halter look. Try a parasol bodied hat with a lady like bow.
In your lady-like outfit you will be ready to partake in all of the race day festivities at York Racecourse for the 2014 Juddmonte International Stakes!
