YOUR OUT­FIT FOR THE RACES SHOULD RE­FLECT THE FACT THAT IT IS SPRING AND IS A RA­DI­ANT TIME OF YEAR

Mel­bourne Cup time means you need the right out­fit — one that looks fab­u­lous yet is com­fort­able, so once you have your out­fit on, you can for­get about it and en­joy the day!

As al­ways, the fash­ion is one of the ma­jor el­e­ments and at­trac­tions of the races, so it is im­por­tant to dress to im­press and have fun choos­ing what to wear.

In terms of sea­son’s trends, ex­pect to see fring­ing, leather, bold colours and fem­i­nine flo­rals.

A hat is a must, fas­ci­na­tor or head­piece, it’s not a race out­fit with­out one. Choose your footwear wisely. As you will be on your feet all day, wear shoes that you know you can go the dis­tance in.

Bright shoes are trend­ing this spring so keep an eye out for some vi­brant ones, but make sure they’re also com­fort­able.

Ac­ces­sorise to the max, and if you can’t find ac­ces­sories to match your out­fit, go for blacks and metallics as they are very ‘in’ this sea­son.

If you are look­ing for a dress/out­fit that is fem­i­nine and flowy, bou­tiques in town such NB Style and Sy­bil’s have some won­der­ful op­tions.

If you are look­ing for a dress that is fem­i­nine but slightly more struc­tured, try some of the Grand Cen­tral stores, such as Ally or Blue Il­lu­sions, as well.

There is also a wide va­ri­ety of su­perb men’s fash­ion to choose from at Peter Jack­son and Ox­ford.

These lo­cal stores have some of Toowoomba’s best event fash­ion.

So en­joy dress­ing up and look­ing fab­u­lous, but choose wisely so that you will be com­fort­able all day long.
