Ladies, start your engines! For the first time in 27 years, the North Wilkesboro Speedway is back on the premiere schedule to host the 2023 NASCAR All-Star Race! We are so excited for what this means for our town! This race falls within NASCAR's 75th anniversary season, so it's going to be BIG! Featuring a 100-lap open race, a 200-lap main event, and a pit crew challenge, the all-star race is going to be full of thrills and exciting entertainment that'll keep you on the edge of your seat. In light of race week, we've put together a collection of "race-ready" essentials so you can attend this historic event in both comfort and style. Make a pit-stop at Fruit of the Vine Boutique to get race-ready!
First, let's talk about essentials you'll want to bring to the race track. The forecast is looking warm and Sunday for race week, which means you'll want to dress accordingly. But as we all know, sometimes you need a little something extra to stay cool. Beat the heat with one of our Dock & Bay cooling towels! These genius little cooling towels feature dual layered cooling technology to keep you cool for up to 6 hours! Simply wet the towel in cold water, squeeze out the excess, give the fabric a snap, and enjoy a cooling temperature down to 59°F. Whether you're headed to a theme park, ball park, or race track, clear bags are essential to pass through security checkpoints with ease. Our Clear Crossbody Bag with Tassel is a great option! Available in gold, these bags are compact, yet spacious enough to fit all your necessities and smaller items.
Now that we've talked essentials, let's talk about the base: your outfit! We LOVE motorsports reporter and host, Monica Palumbo! Her style is immaculate and she always looks stylish and chic for every NASCAR event. We had the privilege of seeing her at Martinsville Speedway where she wore this adorable outfit! We thought she modeled fantastic race outfit inspiration and wanted to recreate her look. She wore this super cute puff sleeve spotted top with white jeans and sandals. Both our Embroidered Sleeve Pattern Top has a similar design that easily replicates Monica's look. Our Flower Print Embroidered Top also has a similar style with a more lightweight feel. Our Breezy Smocked Waist Top features more of a similar print with a unique design that is sure to bring on the compliments! Any of these tops pair so well with our White Skinny Mini Fray Hem jeans and our White Rolled Up Cuff Shorts! Pair the outfit with your favorite white sneakers or a comfortable pair of sandals for a race-ready look that is chic, yet comfy!
Another great outfit idea for race week is a simple sundress and sandal combo. Our Hyatt Maxi Dress is an option that you'll love! The lightweight cotton blend fabric and laid back pastel tie dye print make this dress perfect for heading to the race track. Whether you're out on the bleachers or up in the box, this dress is sure to keep you cool and comfortable all race day. If you prefer more neutral tones, our Sleeveless Tie Dye Maxi is another super cute option. This dress is super soft and comfortable with pockets that keep your hands free! Lightweight, flowy, and stylish, there are a million reasons to love this dress! Pair it with your favorite pair of white sneakers or sandals for all-day comfort and style.
Now let's talk accessories. We all know that accessories have the ability to bring an outfit together and really make it pop. Here are some race inspired accessories that are perfect for race week! The checkered flag is a staple in any NASCAR race. Checkered print has become such a trend in recent years, so it's only fitting that it makes an appearance in our lineup of adorable accessories! Our checkered headbands and checkered claw clips are just what you need to top off your outfits this race week! Claw clips are an essential when it comes to keeping your hair up to stay cool during hot days. Available in two styles and sizes, these claw clips feature a strong grip that is perfect for half up styles on thicker hair and updos on thinner hair! Our checkered headbands are also a great option! Also available in two styles of checkered print, these headbands work great to keep your hair out of your face while being super cute all the while. Wear these headbands with a black and white outfit, or pair it with a solid green or red top for a race-ready look.
That's a wrap for race week essentials that you won't want to miss out on! Want more race outfit inspiration? Visit us online or make a pit-stop in store to see our full range of products and find just what you need to take on race week in style!
