How to own your style for The Deighton Cup next month

Jun 22 2017, 12:24 pm

Vancouver’s most stylish racing event, The Deighton Cup, is taking over Hastings Racecourse next month.

On Saturday, July 22, you can attend the highly-anticipated event, dressed up and ready to have an amazing time race-watching, mingling, and dancing to DJ beats.

But first, you must ask yourself this very important question: What will you wear?

The style standards for The Deighton Cup are high because there aren’t that many places you can wear fascinators, bow ties, and ultra glam outfits in Vancouver.

And this racing event is one amazing reason to do so.

Plus, your ticket for the event gives you the chance to be named The Style Stakes ‘Best Dressed’ and this means you get your name engraved on The Deighton Cup if you win.

Seriously. So it’s worth your while to dress and impress.

Over the last few years, fashion at the event has been heavily influenced by The Royal Ascot and the Kentucky Derby. So plenty of traditional hats, sky high fascinators, bow-ties, and suspenders flocked the races.

But the Melbourne Cup has seen an increase in geometric shapes and patterns, paired with statement head pieces rather than the traditional fascinator.

So if you want to wear a crown or headband, go for it. Show them who’s a style boss.

All you have to do is stop by the Style Stakes area at the track to enter yourself into the fashion race. Alternatively, you can look out for the roaming judges in the crowds.

Oh, there will also be ‘People’s Choice’ awards this year as part of The Style Stakes competition, hosted via Deighton Cup’s social platforms immediately after the event finishes.

Now, happy outfit shopping.
