The best part of going to the Races has to be dressing up.  Many Women are unsure what to wear to a Racing Event and so I've put together what I hope is a useful guide to the Best Races Dresses For Women.  All of them from top high street brands and available to buy online for 2012.

Races Dresses should be elegant and feminine, think Summer Garden Party rather than a night on the tiles.  The length doesn't really matter but Knee length dresses are always popular and the last couple of years have seen a real trend towards Maxi Dresses at the Races.  It's probably best to avoid anything that is too short.

Many Races Dresses are sleeveless or strapless which can be a problem even in Summer time as you will be spending the majority of the time outside and British Summer's can't be relied upon to be warm. If you buy something sleeveless wear it with either a cute bolero or a luxurious pashmina so that you don't get caught out in the cold.

Races Dresses don't have to be flamboyant to create impact.  The most simple race day dresses can create sensational outfits by clever styling.  Choose a fabulous corsage for your hair or a huge hat for instant glamour and to stand out from the crowd.  Amazing shoes are a must at the races too.  You may want to avoid stilleto heels as they will sink into the ground so choose a more substantial heel or wedges.
