Fashion Inspired by Irish Champions Weekend

Events / Travel

Get excited, especially if you’re part of that lucky bunch that will be attending the Longines Irish Champions Weekend this Saturday and Sunday! The two-day event kicks off Saturday at Leopardstown with the QIPCO Irish Champion Stakes, one of five “Win and You're In” qualifying races at the festival for the 2017 Breeders’ Cup at Del Mar on Nov. 3 and 4. The scene moves to the Curragh on Sunday for the second day of Longines Irish Champions weekend. Some of the world’s top Thoroughbreds will be competing against one another. Beyond the racing, several events such as the Longines Prize for Elegance and off-track entertainment highlight the festivities.

Here are some of my favorite fashion pieces inspired by this extraordinary weekend of racing, with links for those interested in securing the ensembles.
