There are three main race days to con­sider, each with its own style per­sua­sion. Derby Day (Nov 3) is the eas­i­est in a sense, as the dress code is sim­ply black and white. This sea­son that could mean graphic prints or two-tone flo­rals, for ex­am­ple. Mel­bourne Cup Day (Nov 6) is all about colour. Think bold, think bright, per­haps block colour or prints. This is the day to make an im­pact. Oaks Day (Nov 8) is oth­er­wise known as Ladies Day, so the vibe here is pretty and fem­i­nine: pas­tels and flo­ral prints are most pop­u­lar. The main thing to re­mem­ber is to keep it classy – and that in­cludes not stum­bling home with your shoes in your hand.
