What to wear to the 2014 Los Alamitos Futurity…

Whatever you choose to do during race day at Los Alamitos, you will want to look your best. It is the Holiday Season so why not go ahead and be a little bit festive. This doesn’t mean you need to channel a Christmas tree or go with a red and green combo, try one of the hottest winter trends, which is wearing winter white. This isn’t your summer white. Winter whites have a little bit of warmth to them and definitely stay away from summer fabrics like linen or eyelet. Keep your whites in luxe materials and even mix your look with a little bit of metallic for a fun fancy twist. You will look chic and luxurious.

For celebrity inspiration, check out the Duchess herself, Kate Middleton and actress Naomi Watts.

Try the trend yourself with great pieces like a great cream dress or pair a winter white sweater with a quilted white skirt and top it off with a winter white coat. Top off your look with a cream or off white fascinator from Fashion at the Races or go bold with one bright pop of color.

In your all white look you will look ever so chic and be all set to have a great and glamorous time at Los Alamitos for the 2014 Los Alamitos Futurity!
