The Spring Racing Trends That are Going to Be Big in 2016

What do we love most about spring racing? Well, apart from the opportunity to frock up, it's the perfect occasion to test out new-season trends. And following the S/S 17 new-season presentations in New York, London, and Milan, we can also take inspiration straight from the streets and runways. 

We keep a close eye on the fresh looks coming from catwalks then report back to you, so you can be first to wear them. Spring racing is no different. Some of the biggest trends we've spotted, include: The cold-shoulder trend, corset belts, metallic dresses, and lucite heels. 

Our prediction? These trends will be everywhere come summer, so get in first and test them out this spring.
