The 2022 Grand National is well and truly underway with racing fans celebrating being allowed to visit the Aintree Festival for the first time since 2019.

Every year, women spend a tremendous amount of time planning their jaw-dropping outfits for the big day, with trends changing from year to year. The last few days have seen some very impressive outfits, and people seem to have tried so hard today.

As the weather got off to a bad start with rain and hail, it quickly turned around and cleared up. Still, no matter the weather, Aintree racing fans were ready for a big day.

Today, many racing fans have opted for glamorous dresses and jumpsuits, in bright colors like red, blue and white. Already this year, Aintree racing fans have started new trends such as flamboyant headgear neon outfits and fedora style hats .

For Grand National Day, the ladies of Aintree seem to have decided to bring a vintage vibe to today’s racing. Many women came in corset dresses that feature a boned bodice – or design that gives the illusion of one – leading into a midi skirt.
