Formula 1 Fashion: Race day dressing

Formula 1 Fashion: Race day dressing

If you’re as excited as I am about the race at BIC tomorrow, you will either be at the circuit, glued to your TV set, or chilling at a sports bar with friends. Either ways, you gotta dress for the part of a Formula One fan!

So here are my top fashion tips for race day.

What NOT to wear

  • Your favourite LBD (the race is the afternoon, and it’s in Noida not Paris!)

 

  • The office shirt- it’s the weekend, it’s a sporting event, and you gotta chill. 🙂

 

  • Casual shorts- The race is usually attended by the who’s who, and “beautiful people” from across India and the world. So keep your beach bermudas for your next Goa trip, please.

 

  • Rock star tee- The Metallica tshirt, really? After last year’s debacle?

 

  • Tottering heels- Those are for the after party, dahling!

 

What you could wear

  • Your favourite team or driver tshirt, paired with chinos or jeans (skinny ones for women). Or this classy Delhi Formula 1 polo from Lecoanet Hemant. It’s got the route map traced on it and will take you to the next season as well.

  • Accessorise with sensible shoes (loafers, moccasins, slip-ons) and sunglasses to beat the mid-afternoon sun. Fendi or Fastrack- it’s your choice!
