Welcome to the Winter Best Dressed at RACE Trentham!

Join us for a day of fashion, racing, and winter festivities as we celebrate the season in style. This year's event will feature a special emphasis on tweed and tartan fashion, highlighting the classic and timeless appeal of these fabrics.

We invite you to participate in our Winter Best Dressed competition, showcasing your creativity and style by incorporating these fabrics into your race day outfit. The competition is open to all attendees, and judge(s) will award points for creativity, style, and attention to detail.

Three categories awarded:

  1. L'Oréal Best Dressed Lady
  2. L'Oréal Best Dressed Gentleman
  3. L'Oréal Best Dressed Tweeds & Tartan

Whether you are a seasoned racegoer or a first-time attendee, the Winter Best Dressed at RACE Trentham is a can't-miss event that offers something for everyone. So come dressed to impress, enjoy the racing action, and soak up the winter festivities with us!

Here are a few things to keep in mind as you prepare your outfit:

  • The theme of the competition is "Tweeds and Tartan", so be sure to incorporate one or both of these fabrics into your outfit.
  • The judge(s) will be looking for creativity, style, and attention to detail. Consider accessorising your outfit with hats, scarves, gloves, or other winter accessories, and think about how you can make your outfit stand out from the crowd.
  • Don't be afraid to take risks and push the boundaries of traditional tweed and tartan styles. The competition is a great opportunity to showcase your own unique sense of style and personality.

We encourage you to have fun and be creative with your outfit, and we look forward to seeing what you come up with.
