We’re now only 2 weeks away from the prestigious Queen’s Plate at Woodbine Racetrack, which means you have only that much time to assemble that perfect race day outfit. Last week, we showed you 28 examples of stellar racing fashion from horse races around the world, and today we’ve pulled together 3 looks to inspire your Queen’s Plate shopping over the next 2 weeks. From the loveliest of frocks to the chicest of fascinators, we’ve got you covered for one of the biggest sporting and fashion events of the summer.
For a ladylike race day look favoured by the likes of Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, choose a shift dress in a neutral tone and delicate fabric like lace. Our pick is alice + olivia‘s navy silk-chiffon design with elaborate beading at the sleeves and scalloped hem (USD$495). Pair it with Queen’s Plate official milliner David Dunkley‘s peacock feather fascinator for a pop of colour and Zara‘s t-strap silver sandals for a bit of edge (CAD$49.99).
For a cheerful race day vibe, choose a fit-and-flare dress in a vibrant print like alice + olivia‘s red and white floral frock (USD$476.80). Take this eye-catching dress to the next level with a tall David Dunkley fascinator in matching hues, Rebecca Minkoff‘s watersnake ‘Vincent’ minaudiere in a contrasting colour (USD$295), and sky-high sandals from Zara (CAD$69.99).
For a polished Queen’s Plate look that’s right on trend, go for head-to-toe black and white. Choose a classic sheath dress like Black Halo‘s ‘Jackie O.’ (USD$345), a favourite among celebrities, and style it with a chic David Dunkley fascinator, an oversized clutch from Z Spoke by Zac Posen (USD$137), and snake-embossed stiletto sandals by Calvin Klein (USD$139).
There you have it – three fabulous race day looks to get your creative juices flowing when you hit the shops for a Queen’s Plate getup. The possibilities are endless though, and we can’t wait to see your sartorial genius on July 7!
