Dust off your fascinator and pour yourself a glass of bubbles – the spring racing season is in full swing.
The chance to don your finest and, erm, stock up on a few Instagram photos for upcoming #ThrowbackThursdays, a day at the races is always a memorable one.
But there’s always one question that looms – what on earth do I wear? Because we’re always here to give you a helping hand, we’ve rounded up the six fashion and beauty trends that will dominate trackside this year.
1. Dainty headwear.
Bigger isn’t always better when it comes to headwear. This season we’re already seeing a return back to more dainty options. Think headbands Gossip Girl‘s Blair Waldorf would approve of, intricate metallic designs and even clips and bows.
While the races are the best place to showcase the art of millinery, these more subtle options are great for people who don’t enjoy hats so much and are far easier to re-wear.
It’s time to paint the track red. Jennifer Hawkins was onto something with her incredible red jumpsuit last year, with the bold colour proving a popular choice already this season. In fashion, it instantly pops and doesn’t require a whole heap of accessories to make it a statement outfit.
3. The classic red lip.
It's not just fashion that's seeing red - the classic red lip is another huge trend this spring racing season. It's a great way to add a slightly subtler nod to the bold trend AND there's the added bonus of making your teeth look whiter and smile brighter, particular if you go for a blue-based tone.

4. Give it the shoulder.
Off the shoulder, one shoulder, slashed shoulder - whatever the style, shoulder detailing will reign supreme this season. Just remember your sunscreen (and if you're fake tanning don't pull a Kath and Kim and tan the wrong arm...)
