When it comes to a race day outfit, the finishing touch often lies in something as simple as a statement bag, earrings, and of course, your headpiece. Sometimes it can be just effective to wear something super simple in the outfit, and accentuate it with big earrings, or clash the bag with the dress to make a statement.
While the minimalist trend is always timeless when it comes to dainty jewellery and neutral bags, a day trackside is the time to shine with big bold pieces. We've collected a few of our favourite accessories out there that are perfect for your next race day look.
Big colourful earrings are coming back in a big way, and we are especially loving the tassel and fringe varities that you can pick up in a lot of jewellery shops now. There are smaller options for something more understated, but we love the Camillas Tassel & Coin Earrings to make a statement!

Neck scarves have slipped into the trends in recent seasons, but are now becoming part of any wardrobe's basics. A beautiful silk scarf can be worn in a few different ways, whether it's tied around your neck, around a shoulder bag strap, or even around the wrist for a statement accessory. No one does it better, or more affordable, than 66 The Label, with a big range of patterns and colours to match any look. Try a scarf for your next statement accesory.

On a race day, it's important that bags have functionality so that you can enjoy your day trackside without fiddling with a clutch all day. Shoulder Bags are not just functional, but are seriously on trend right now. You can sling them over your shoulder with both hands free for champagne! You can enjoy this trend at any price point, but we have on our wish lists some of the new styles by YSL and Gucci. We love how Cayleigh James from Of Style and Substance has styled hers in a casual race day look!

Shoes can be the perfect complement to your look, and a great opportunity to add a pop of colour to a neutral outfit. We love the new range from Jaggar Footwear, with plenty of statement footwear perfect for a day trackside. They also have a variety of styles, so if you're not a stiletto girl, you can opt for a mule or a boot.
