Spring Racing Styling Tips October 22 2015

Spring racing season is almost upon us - it’s the perfect time to get out and about and enjoy a well earned day out with your favourite people. Whether you are attending one day, or all of them, be inspired by these foolproof styling tips and then all you have to do is back a winner!

 

Derby Day

Derby Day's traditional black and white palette inspires this elegant affair. This season, fashion editor Kate Waterhouse suggests that we move away from the traditional monochrome attire, and instead opt for a chic white-on-white combo. It's a bold move, but one that is strikingly elegant and one that will make you stand out against the sea of black. Do not underestimate the power of accessories! Check out our timeless range of bracelets, necklaces, earrings and rings for an added touch of elegance and class.

 

Melbourne Cup

The race that stops the nation. The horse racing enthusiasts and fashionistas of the world are equally as motivated for this event. It’s all about basking in the glory –whether that glory is born from a stack of wins or the tick of approval from the fashion gurus. Steal the fashion spotlight with vibrant colours, exotic prints and statement jewellery. 70’s floral prints and Japanese inspired prints are some of the winning styles this season, so If you are eager to stand out from the crowd, don’t be afraid to experiment with bold patterns that are rich in colour and texture. Own it!

Crown Oaks Day

Crown Oaks Day, also known as ladies day, is an opportunity to express your signature style. Flemington becomes a striking canvas of colour, featuring delicate fabrics, soft tones, floral prints and frills. It’s a wonderful day to soak up the glamour amid the racing buzz. A-line dresses and skirts are receiving plenty of attention this season! Complete your look with small, delicate accessories that will add subtle detail to your attire.

Emirates Stakes Day

Emirates Stakes Day is traditionally known as family day. But don't let that stop you from flaunting your best race day outfit yet. We recommend more relaxed and comfortable styles. According to fashion stylist Lana Wilkinson, the over-the-knee full skirt is set to be one of the hottest trends this season!
