Spring 2013 Style Inspiration: What to Wear to a NASCAR Race

Happy Tuesday Fashion Bomb readers!
Though we were all about the Met Gala last night, we’re returning to our regularly scheduled program! Today I’m answering a “What to Wear” request for a bombshell who is looking to make a fashionable statement at an upcoming NASCAR event.

Reader Crystal writes, “I’m going to my first NASCAR race in a few weeks with my husband & have no clue what to wear. I mean really I don’t want to look like a fly on the wall! So was curious if you could do a Style Inspiration for that event! What do people even wear to races? Jeans & team t’s? Keep doing what y’all are doing…it’s great!”

Well Crystal to ensure you don’t look like a “fly on the wall” at your first NASCAR race, you want to keep your look casual and comfortable. Jeans and t-shirts will be your best bet to enjoy the race, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have some fun with your wardrobe.

So for your first option, I went for simplicity with a white Zara linen tank top paired with H&M dark denim skinny jeans and added a trendy print with an H&M floral printed bomber jacket. To make the look more stylish, accessorize with a chic pair of Steve Madden cuff flat thong sandals, Max Studio clear framed sunglasses, pink Kate Spade New York Locked In stud earrings, and a MARC BY MARC JACOBS white birch/black leather crossbody handbag.

For the final touch, work in additional shades of color to brighten up the look with a mint green mani and a subtle pink lip gloss.

For your second choice, I opted for a simple print and a few pops of color including an H&M black and white striped baseball tee, ADRIANO GOLDSCHMIED The Stilt poppy red cigarette jeans, a classic denim jacket, and a pair of black suede and gold metallic leather Saint Laurent Classic Janis flat t-strap sandals.

Play up this casual look with a black and yellow color-block Michael Kors medium Selma Saffiano satchel, a pair of Ray-Ban aviator sunglasses, and a chunky gold chain link necklace to complete this second wardrobe option.

For your final look, I mixed a blue TIBI silk cami top with a pair of cuffed denim shorts, and a white denim moto vest. Spruce things up with a few colorful accessories like a pair of printed Steve Madden Xtrime wedges, a green Henri Bendel Milliner crossbody handbag, tribal print bangles, and Vince Camuto Square Stone stud earrings.
