The Del Mar Race season is one of the most elite and anticipated events of the year in San Diego. People come from far and wide to attend one of these horse races, especially on July 17 which is Opening Day.
Besides the sound of the cheers of the crowd and the excitement of the horses racing, one of the most important aspects of the Del Mar Race Track is the eye-catching fashions seen around the track. Between the decorative hats to the full skirts, the Del Mar Races are not a place to be shy with your wardrobe. For those looking to attend a race in style, we have some trendy tips on how to stand out as a stylista.
Women should think about trying to audition to be a cast member of “The Real Housewives of San Diego.” Think: classy and flashy. Consider finding a skirt or dress that hits the knee or mid-thigh and avoid short body-hugging garments. Flared skirts and wrap dresses will look stunning when paired with a stylish head piece. If you’re getting stadium seating, be considerate by wearing a small brimmed hat or head piece, but if you plan on wandering the grounds, go all out with a wide-brimmed statement sun hat. Don’t forget to accessorize, ladies! Bright colored chunky jewelry will set you apart and you can’t go wrong with chandelier earrings.
When it comes to shoes, consider how much you plan on walking and remember that much of the racetrack consists of dirt pathways. We recommend comfortable wedges or fashionable sandals.
Men can choose to wear semi-formal clothing to the races with a lightweight button-down dress shirt or polo that will offer comfort throughout the day. Men are also known to wear hats at the track- try a trendy fedora or straw hats that nods to the 1950s. Men should wear lightweight linen pants or trousers and will need to pair it all with a coat if they plan on attending the Turf Club. Some of the latest dress shoe trends at the event include sleek loafers with a tassel for high-end and sophisticated attire.
The Del Mar Race Track has events held from July 17, 2014 to November 7, 2014 with ticket prices starting at $6.00 for the stretch run and $10 for the clubhouse. Diamond Club members get half-price admission with additional discounts on other services at the location.
