Accessorise Your Race Day Outfit | Blog | SageBrown

As race season approaches, excitement builds not just for the races themselves but also for the fashion parade that accompanies them. The perfect race day outfit is a blend of style, comfort, and statement-making flair. And once your outfit choice is settled, the next big decision is selecting the ideal handbag to complement your look. Anita Pekdemir, co-founder of SageBrown, lends her expertise in guiding you to choose the perfect accessory for your race day ensemble.

According to Anita, "The key is opting for handbags that are both stylish and sophisticated, yet lightweight and comfortable for a day of standing and socialising. It's all about balance - ensuring your handbag enhances, rather than overshadows, your outfit."
Let's explore SageBrown's elegant and versatile selections for some of the most anticipated race events of the year.

What to Wear to Aintree Races - Grand National

(Thursday 11th - Saturday 13th April)

Sabrina bag, lime croc

At Aintree, where style makes a statement, a standout handbag is a must. The lack of a strict dress code for the Grand National means it's the perfect occasion to experiment with bright, bold colours. SageBrown's Leather Sabrina Bag in Lime Green Croc and the Betty Bag in Yellow Croc are ideal for adding a unique twist to your outfit with their eye-catching hues. Each also includes a longer shoulder strap, offering the convenience of hands-free use, perfect for holding binoculars or champagne!
