My Top 3 Accessories for Autumn Racing

To celebrate the Autumn Racing Carnival, we ask the dapper couple behind The TrendSpotter to share some practical style advice on what to wear trackside. Here Dasha Gold shares how she’ll be accessorising for the autumn races. (Original article on TheTrendSpotter.net

Wool felt hats

Hats are not only practical as they keep your face shade, but are also effortlessly chic and compliment almost every outfit. Some of the biggest hat styles for autumn racing events include: the hard or floppy brim hat, which are both a great compliment to any outfit; and the classic fedora, which is great for creating a beautiful balance of femininity and masculinity.

Remember, your wool felt hat is an accessory and should be treated as such: choose a colour and fabric that will match and accentuate the rest of your look.

Jewelled headpieces

Accessories are just as important as your overall outfit choice, and one of the hottest accessories for this season is a jeweled headpiece. This stylish accessory has been seen on multiple celebrities and is perfect for creating a laidback yet glamorous look. 

For a more sophisticated look style your hair sleek and straight, but if you want to achieve something a bit more romantic then you can lightly curl your hair.

Pop accessories 

Never underestimate the power of accessories, and a way to ensure that your accessories are a standout feature is if you choose them in bold bright colours. Add a pop of colour to your look by picking an accessory that’s interesting and bright - this will lift an otherwise neutral outfit and make the look more creative.

Try out a red oversized clutch with an all-white outfit (white reigns supreme for warmer months), or a statement yellow necklace paired with a monochromatic look - for the best results ensure the rest of your look is toned down and in muted colours.
