The Two Fashions on the Field Rules That are Stopping You From Being Chosen

The Two Fashions on the Field Rules That are Stopping You From Being Chosen

With the Mekka Races fast approaching, it’s about high time we all thought about those crucial outfit choices. After all, what could be a better way to top off Mekka Wednesday than posting that damn hot outfit pic to Insta and watching the likes roll in? Actually, if you follow my advice and get planning sooner you might just have an even better pic to show off. How does a starring role catwalk snap of yourself in Fashions on the Field sound? Good? Or try a ‘gram of you rocking your outfit centre stage complete with the WINNER’S sash? Hmmnn that does sounds sweet! But beware for there are two rules in the judging criteria that could stop you from even getting a chance to enter the coveted competition.
What to wear to the races

#1 No midriffs

When was the last time you watched a Fashions on the Field competition, admiring all the stunning clothes and accessories, looking up and down the women just to realise that sitting right in between her designer matching top and skirt set was a sparkly little belly button piercing? There’s a reason the answer is NEVER and that’s because it’s one of the rules against being seen as the most fashionable chicka on the race course. You may have a great outfit there’s no denying and we sure know we love a good bit of skin showing but when it comes to this prestigious fashion race, midriffs are a big no-no.

#2 Dress for the season

It may not seem like much of a worry if you’re wearing a chic straw hat in winter or long floaty sleeves in summer but surprisingly, one of the most important rules judges look for in Fashions on the Field is whether you’re dressing appropriately for the season. For Mekka Wednesday this means avoid strappy dresses, bright florals and big floppy hats and instead opt for an outfit with a bit more coverage with heavier fabrics, darker tones and warm accessories. Felt and faux fur are easy materials to finish off your winter look. If you’re wondering how to nail it in summer then think shorter hemlines, light and fun colours and something a little smaller and a lot more fresh on the head.

To save you the hassle of ordering the wrong size for your body, here's a simple way to get accurate measurements of yourself.
Grab a tape measure and stand in front of a full-length mirror. Be sure to take your measurements undressed or in your underwear only. 
Stand straight and pull the tape measure close to your body, but not too tight! 
For best and more accurate results, have a friend take the measurements for you. 
We understand that not being able to physically try on our garments can be hard when making your purchase. If you are unhappy with the size or fit of your purchase you can return or exchange it as long as it meets all our return and exchange policy requirements. 

Please refer to our "RETURNS" section for further information.
Measure the bust line at the fullest part of your chest. Stand naturally with your heels together and arms resting by the side of your body. Position the tape so that it covers the widest part of your back and the fullest part of your chest.
Place your hands at your natural waistline. This is where the tape should be positioned. If you cannot find your natural waist, stand with your feet slightly apart and bend to the side. Where your waist creases is the natural waist.
Stand naturally with your heels together in a relaxed pose. Measure with the tape.
