Picking your race day outfit isn’t easy. So we thought we would give you a hand and make it easier to pick the most appropriate shoes for your race day look, as well as give you some tips and trends for this season.

We chatted with Diana Ferrari‘s Designer, Sharon Teuma about the latest tips and trends for picking the perfect pair of shoes for the races.

Diana Ferrari is the Official Footwear Event Partner for Styles on the Straight 2018, and Diana Ferrari Representative Polly Morris, Marketing Coordinator, will feature on the judging panel on Kennedy Oaks Day.

How would you describe the best pair of shoes for the races?

Wear a style that you can walk in and suits your foot shape!

We often talk about heel heights and fit, we all have different shape feet, so go with a style that suits your feet and shows off your best and hides the not so great bits.

Wedges and block heels are always a good option for grass! They can help you avoid any embarrassing “Bridget Jones” face planting scenes in the wet grass!

Best tip, take your heels in a bag and put them on just before you arrive and have a pair of dressy flat slides as a backup plan for the trip home.

 What are the biggest footwear trends this season?

Dad sneakers are definitely the biggest footwear trend for the season, but not for race attire!

Metallic 70’s platform sandals with a block heels, perspex pointed pumps or heeled slides in blush tones.

What are your styling tips for our first time race goers?

Big brimmed hats are on and so is animal print.

What styles are you hoping to see this racing season?

Eclectic mixes of Gucci Garden florals and bold Versace inspired outlandish type prints.

What celebrities have the best style to you?

Meghan Markel is definitely the lady of the moment with her elegance and grace. She hasn’t put a foot wrong so far.

What is the inspiration behind your collection?

Femininity but with a practical edge, we want to inspire woman to look and feel great.
