Opening day at the races is one of my favorite days to dress up. It is one occasion where you really can't be overdressed. The most important part of your outfit is the hat. There aren't very many opportunities to wear a giant hat in public so take advantage of it. I say the bigger the hat the better. To dress up my hat I added a feather pin that matched my monochromatic outfit. Dresses are the standard for opening day. It's important to get a dress that's appropriate for being in the sun all day, but also dressy enough to complement your look. Heels are a must, even though there is a lot of walking and standing. Choose shoes you can wear all day. Instead of a large bag opt for a clutch or crossbody to make maneuvering around the crowds easier. Throw on some great sunglasses and you're ready for the races!
