The autumn racing season is here once again, and you know what that means: races that are every bit as exciting as spring, but with more relaxed crowds. The cooler weather also calls for more structured pieces and warm, earthy, and jewel tones. I know you’ll be spending a lot of time searching for the perfect dress, but that’s only half the battle. They say shoes can make or break an outfit. I say accessories can also do a lot to amplify and pull a look together. Below, I’ve put together some of the hottest dresses this seasons plus the shoes, bags, and headpieces that they’re best paired with. Of course, feel free to search for dupes or look-alikes, or even substitute for something completely different! The other great thing about accessories is that they can change the entire look — it’s actually a way to extend your wardrobe without having to buy a new dress every time. Have a look at the best autumn race day accessories for whatever dress you’re planning to wear.
