That was the advice to Launceston Cup attendees from Launceston business owner Sharee Marshall.
The racing identity spoke at yesterday's AAMI Launceston Cup barrier draw and fashion preview.
The Cityprom event opened with the official barrier draw in which Richoman, trained by Mark Ganderton, was given barrier1.
Neil's Gold owner and trainer Angela Brakey said drawing barrier4 was "not too bad".
"Maybe wider would have been better for him," Ms Brakey said.
The crowd of about 100 were treated to a parade of suitable cup fashion from nine local retailers, including pieces from Ms Marshall's shop.
"This year it's on the individual flair," Ms Marshall said.
She said racegoers could expect to see "retro dresses, classic black and white and pretty little dresses".
Cityprom executive officer Vanessa Cahoon said events like the Launceston Cup were "fantastic for Launceston", particularly retailers, as they brought people from all over Australia into the state.
