I’ve been asked a few times for a spring racing carnival fashion edit of a different sort, and I’m only too happy to oblige. A common predicament for ladies 50 and over is that it can be hard to shop for racewear, as many of them prefer to cover their arms and décolleté. Bodycon silhouettes are definitely out, and so are dresses that fall too far above the knee. More conservative dressing is the order of the day, and here are my top picks. Enjoy!
