The Pony Tales

Take a tip from the style mavens at Nubry for your opening day wardrobe dilemmas.

You were so sure you’d nailed your race day outfit last year... until you glanced across the paddock to see a troop of tweens in the same look. We asked the blogging sisters behind Nubry for their style tips for this year’s Opening Day at the Del Mar races this Thursday, July 17. Here, five looks for best in show.

Make a statement: Wearing Del Mar blues and yellows may land you in a photo op or two. Pair a solid colored dress with a different colored hat for an eye-catching color block look. 

Wear white: White makes a pale complexion glow, so pair a white dress with a cream colored hat. Note: Steer clear of ketchup, cosmos and the tipsy girl with the green apple martini.

Monochromatic mistress: Pair a solid colored dress with a hat that is the same tone - you'll look well planned just like your paddock picks. 

Pretty prints: If a print is your pref, pair a printed dress with a simple white or neutral colored hat. The focus becomes your dress.

Timeless classics: Opt for a black and white dress with a black or a white hat and some Jackie O Chanel shades.
