Del Mar Race Track Opening Day is nearly here! The only thing on our mind this week is what we will be we wearing and what hat or headpiece/fascinator will compliment our look. This weekend, Carol Bader Design is offering a weekend of trunk shows to get you, your friends, and your significant other ready for Opening Day. Yes, men need a quality hat too! For male attire style tips see our Del Mar Race Track Opening Day Men’s Style Guide.
The trunk shows will offer hair and makeup ideas to go with your hat and of course show you the perfect way to wear a hat (there is a right and a wrong way to wear a hat!). Wondering if the decorative part goes in the front, back or side? Which side?! Not to worry, Carol Bader will be on site herself to help you with all of your hat questions so that you are oozing style and confidence on the Del Mar Race Track Opening Day.
Now, don’t think that you can go to a local hat shop the day before and get a Del Mar appropriate hat! You won’t find the quality you are looking for, believe us. We know you paid a lot for your outfit, so don’t let your hat let you down! Del Mar Race Track Opening Day only comes once per year. To get Opening Day outfit inspiration or hat ideas, see our Women’s Style Guide for Opening Day, which features Carol Bader Design hats and fascinators throughout.
Editor’s Note: Carol Bader is a custom hat designer who outfits clients for Ascot, Kentucky Derby, Belmont Stakes and the most prestigious races in the country.
