Handy tips

The judges will be looking for those who make an outfit work with the temperature on the day. It is advisable to keep an eye on the weather forecast so you can be prepared.

Be aware of the suitably of your outfit and headwear. A good idea is to try everything on an ask for the opinion of others.

A prominence of exposed skin is not considered ‘classic race wear’ i.e mini skirts, dresses with large exposed cut outs etc. the judges however are aware of current trends such as off the shoulder. 

Good luck and remember your best accessory is your smile
