This February, London Fashion Week AW20 brought a glimpse of trends we will be wearing this autumn/winter. Here are three trends that we think will be a hit at the races.
Sparkle the blues away and add a bit of glitzy glamour to your autumn/winter race outfit.
Ashish – the fashion prince of sparkle does not disappoint as his AW20 collection brings full on 1960s glamour of sequins and Lurex galore. Our favourite for winter racing is his monochrome sequined hounds tooth suit with sunshine yellow brooch like buttons and teamed with a colourful striped sequined top.
Jiri Kalfar juxtaposes a dazzling sequined mini dress with the more subtle powder pink midi coat and rocks the look with a pair of pale pink chunky western style boots.
Rocky Star adds sparkling metallic threads to a tweed midi suit – perfect for The Cheltenham Festival. Another outfit glamorises the hoodie with twinkling sequins and a flutter of feathers framing the hood. Paired with free flowing sequined midi skirt, high shine patent leather boots, opera length leather gloves and sunglasses to complete the chic and mysterious look.
Rohmir also adds sparkling threads to a tweed mini suit and updates the look with a soft knitted hoodie. The jacket frayed with twinkling threads along the front and sleeves whilst the skirt’s flirty pleats have powder blue inserts. The classic crombie style coat makes a glittering statement in blue/green two-tone Lurex, navy silk collar and colourful buttons with bird design.
Trendy Trouser suits
For autumn/winter racing days, the trouser suit is a great way to show off your fashion sense whilst staying warm. This season the catwalks showed the trouser suit in all styles, fabrics and colours.
Malan Breton matches bright blue windowpane trouser suit with a dramatic half-caped coat and a satin waistcoat. A soft silver satin silk trouser suit is trimmed with blush pink suede peak lapels, cuffs and piping along the flared trousers and jacket pockets.
Mark Fast goes bright and bold with ’60s style corduroy trouser suits. Semi flared trousers and double breasted jackets in vibrant red and royal blue.
Rohmir glamorises the pinstriped trouser suit with contrasting blue wool threads edging on the jacket, blue velvet on the collar, pocket flaps and on underside of cuffs enabling the wearer to turn back the cuff for a different look. Large buttons are decorated with baroque style scroll design in light blue.
Rocky Star opts for slim fit trousers and cinched in the jacket with a wide faux leather belt. Sparkling silver sequins are arranged in herringbone designs and rows of gold sequins provide an overall windowpane check. Trimmed with faux leather shawl lapel.
Pam Hogg also chooses the slim fit trousers, this time in shimmering pale gold satin with statement high stand up collar. Eye mask optional.
Polka dots are always spot on at the races.
Ashish combines glitter and volumes of glamour with his large crystal embellished pink and black polka dots on a ’50s style midi dress.
Olivia Ruben shows chic can be fun with colourful metallic polka dots on a chunky knitted cardigan paired with a silk polka dot skirt. Large statement pearl buttons adorn the cardigan whilst a row of pearls trims the skirt’s hemline. Shoes by Dune.
