October means one thing for fashion-enthusiasts: Spring Races. A day spent trackside is the perfect excuse to get experimental with your outfit and put a unique spin on current trends. The horses won’t be the only things turning heads this season – we’ve curated an edit of our favourite looks so you can frock up to the races in style.
Free Flowing Florals:
The floral print trend is in full bloom in 2017. Update a races classic by selecting a dress with sheer layers and an irregular hemline. Keep it demure with a pair of Ankle Strap Heels or add some edge in a pair of Cut Out heels. Leave the fascinator at home and style these gowns with a headband or crown.
Where to Wear? This feminine style is perfect for ladies heading to Kennedy Oaks Day.
Select a single-tone dress and let your silhouette do the talking. This style is all about statement sleeves, flared waists and asymmetrical necklines. Exude elegance from top to toe by matching your heels to your headpiece.
Where to Wear? Nail Derby Day’s monochromatic dress code with sass & bide’s Grand Legacy Dress or AQ/AQ’s Rising Midi Dress. Attending Moet & Chandon Spring Champion Stakes Day? Keep all eyes on you with Keepsake’s Shooting Star Dress.
Mini dresses are having a moment this Spring. Celebrate the warmer weather with a playful above-the-knee hemline, accentuated by embroidery, lace or ruffles. Ensure you’re not too racy for the races by pairing your shorter hem with a conservative neckline and a longer sleeve. Want to tip your hat to tradition? Match your mini with a sculpted fascinator.
Where to Wear? Show off your pins at City Tattersall’s Club Cup Day.
Bold to Behold:
Vibrant colour blocking makes an instant style statement. Enhance an understated silhouette with bright hues of orange, yellow, pink, or purple. Buck tradition in a bold suit and stilettos or show off your shape in an on-trend midi. This is your chance to go millinery-mad so pop on a patterned headpiece or a multi-coloured fascinator.
Where to Wear? The race that stops a nation deserves a show stopping outfit; show off Petar Petrov’s Magenta Suit at the Melbourne Cup Carnival. Heading to Schweppes Girls Day Out? Feel pretty in pink with Rebecca Vallance’s Cortona Midi Dress.
