What to wear on Cigar Mile Day 2014…
With the chilly fall weather in New York be sure to bundle up and come dressed appropriately for the 2014 Cigar Mile & Remsen Stakes. This doesn’t mean that you can’t be stylish though. Try one of fall/winter’s hottest trends, the fur trend. Fur accents popped up all over the runways this year and they are a perfect addition to your fall race day look.
For the Cigar Mile & Remsen Stakes try a coat with a fur collar or fur trimmed plaid piece, or try a feminine silhouette coat with fur trim. If you like a little more edge to your look or full on glamour than try an all-out fur statement coat; try a leopard print one or a red fur coat, which is especially on trend. You can also try fur accents on your clothing like this subtle and fun fur trim on the collar of a sheath dress.
With luxe fur accents be sure to keep your head piece subtle, simple and elegant so it doesn’t detract from your fur look. Try a little Black Sinamay Feather Fascinator.
With your fur look you will be sure to look luxe and stay warm on Cigar Mile Day at Aqueduct!
