The Dubai World cup fever is raging through the city, as the ladies furiously tear the malls apart for that perfect outfit. Even though I will be giving the event a miss this year, I did find more than a couple of race day ready outfits at Banana Republic, that are perfect to the T! The third edition of the brand’s super chic Mad Men Collection, for instance, has that sophisticated 50’s elegance which can be spiced up and updated with a catchy fascinator for the races.
Banana Republic’s Spring summer ’13 collection too, has some outstanding pieces for the races. Think white on whites, vivid colors, kaleidoscopic prints and beautiful patterns. From modern Lido stripes to classic tile patterns, cabana prints conjure up images of the French Riviera’s sun-splashed coastline.
I can’t help but think of Audrey Hepburn’s derby day scene- howlarious! Unlike her character in the movie, make sure you don’t make a faux pas. Remember, no mini dresses (nothing above knee length is acceptable), don’t leave home without a hat or fascinator and don’t, pretty please don’t over-accessorize!
Happy race day ladies!
