What To Wear To The Races: Casual Outfit Ideas For Big Guys


back to blog

It’s racing season again. You’re not sure whether it’ll be the horses that’ll let you down or the weather (or both) — but one thing that shouldn’t let you down is your outfit.

Luckily, that’s where we can help. While we can’t predict who’ll cross the finishing line first, we can make sure that you’re channelling your inner stallion from head to toe regardless of your physique — and feeling comfortable all day long.

With The Jockey Club dropping all the rules around dress codes, it’s now the perfect opportunity to wear whatever outfit you would like, opt for an outfit to will make you feel your best! Whether you’re looking for casual outfits with comfort in mind or still want to dress up to the nines, we’ve picked a variety of options that would adhere to both, all in sizes L-8XL.

Outfit 1: “Sun’s Out” Casual Combo

This casual vibe is great if you’re lucky enough to enjoy warmer weather on race day, working well at smaller, less formal race events.

We’re big fans of the essential black Oxford shirt since it’s super versatile, working with loads of different outfit options. Complete the look with some no-fuss tapered jeans that flatter big-thigh body shapes, and seal the deal with classic canvas high-tops from one of our favourite designers, Jack & Jones.

Outfit 2: Sweater Smart-Casual

The right jumper can be a godsend when it comes to crafting a flattering shape for your torso, all while bringing the smart-casual feel that you’re after.

This black and white mock-shirt sweater is perfect to exaggerate your arms and shoulders while slimming down your stomach, thanks to its shade and streamlined tailoring.

Balance things out with our beige stretch chinos for some faux-monochrome goodness. And don’t forget the shades — the perfect finishing touch with a dash of UV protection for when the sun finally rears its head.

Outfit 3: Trailblazing With Jeans

You don’t have to get dressed up for the races. Combine with a simple short-sleeve shirt and these black straight-leg jeans from KAM for a stylish look that’s comfortable enough to enjoy the whole day. Finish with a large-buckle belt and you’re on for a winner.

Outfit 4: Playing Polo

Polo shirts can seriously carry a great outfit.

We can’t get enough of this showstopper knitted polo with its roaring-twenties colour palette and vertical stripe print. It’s guaranteed to make a statement and make you look good without having to worry about a stiff collar or awkward fit.

We’d pair it up with on-trend jeans and comfy canvas trainers from Jack & Jones. If you’re ready to embrace this look, you’ll feel like the crowd’s roaring for you.

Outfit 5: Rainy-Day Refined

When the British weather is against you, this outfit guarantees you’ll come out on top.

Monochrome is a slimming look that always impresses, so we’re going for a black-and-white one-two with some textured greys thrown into the mix. Kick things off with classic white trainers from Jack & Jones that stand out against subtle black jeans.

Layering this relaxed-fit BadRhino hoodie with our gilet might seem a little out-there, but it’s a great way to stand out — and have an emergency layer for a chilly day. Let’s face it: that’s what British summertime is all about!
