ABRV - FASHION

Without a doubt, fashion is one of the most exciting parts about coming to the racetrack and pulling together the right outfit can take your experience to a whole new level — and I’m not just talking about the perfect opportunity for some epic Instagram pics.

Try these runway trends at the races this summer and prepare to dazzle.  

Creamy Neutrals

Low-key neutrals were all over the runway this spring and have been popping up at the 2013 Triple Crown races in the form of creamy neutrals and monochromatic ensembles. Calvin Klein’s dreamy creams and sheer details create the perfect canvas to highlight glowing summer skin and combine easily with bright summer staples already in your wardrobe. Take Lauren Conrad’s lead and keep the look monochromatic or spice it up with colorful accents like neon heels or a bright handbag.

Adding neon accents to the creamy palette keeps the ensemble fresh and modern.

With minimalist and structured silhouettes all over the Spring 2013 runways, deep v-necks and subtle cutouts showcased just enough skin to create a nonchalant sexiness. Narsico Rodriguez highlighted the area of the stomach just below the sternum throughout his collection and repeatedly used a dramatic v-neck cut to create an angular tension within the otherwise boxy and loose silhouettes. At the racetrack, a similar neckline creates drama and swoon-worthy sexiness.

Black and white was all over the runway this spring and has continued to pop up at the races throughout the Triple Crown and this summer. Pair with a black or white hat and a bright pop of lip color and you’re set.

Fifties inspired cinched waists were everywhere in Oscar De La Renta’s Spring 2013 collection and translate perfectly to the races. Tap into the retro-glam vibe with these full skirts, high necklines, and tiny waistlines.
