Fall Fashion Blog : What To Wear To The Hunt
Thank you for visiting our 2015 Far Hills Races Blog!
There’s something about tailgating in a field and watching horses race that makes us want to dress up in our best Fall ensemble, complete with an MZ Wallace quilted backpack. Yes, we’re talking about the Far Hills Race Meeting, also lovingly referred to as “The Hunt”. Every year before the big event, we get asked the question, “What do I wear to The Hunt?”. Well, after years of attending, we are here to finally answer that ominous question.
Layering is key when attending an outdoor event, and The Hunt is no exception. It could be 70 degrees and sunny one minute, and 50 degrees and cloudy the next. We suggest starting your outfit with a third piece, something you can remove if the sun decides to grace you with its warming presence. We can’t get enough of capes this fall, especially when they’re made of dreamy cashmere and have chic leather detailing like our Zoe Couture Reversible Cape. Rocking a cape is not only an excuse to wear a blanket in public, but you will look polished and pulled together all day long.Another great option is a leather jacket. Consider throwing on this third piece with a slouchy v-neck tee and some dark wash Hudson skinny jeans for an I’m-not-trying-too-hard look. Last but not least, there is the ever popular vest. Instead of wearing that old puffy Han Solo vest, we suggest either a cool moto-style vest, or a luxe fur vest by Love Token (real or faux...we don’t discriminate). Finish your look with either a cozy sweater, or a crisp lightweight blouse.
Since it’s often muddy at The Hunt, we suggest wearing dark denim to hide any unsightly mud splatters. For an edgier look, try a pair of skinny black coated denim, or a leather legging. If it’s on the warmer side, a casual dress with a third piece is always on the docket. As for foot wear, make sure you wear something weather proof. We’ve seen our share of footwear tragedies at The Hunt, so let’s have a moment of silence for all of those mud encrusted flats, water damaged leather boots, and grass stained loafers.
Whether or not you are attending The Hunt this year, we would love for you to stop into the The Red Toad Boutique! In addition to fab tailgating ensembles,we also carry beautiful, unique cocktail attire, contemporary apparel, and casual wear.
