Fash­ions look­ing hot

Wangaratta Chronicle - - Front Page - By STEVE KELLY

GUYS and gals will be all glammed up for tomorrow’s rac­ing at the Wangaratta Turf Club’s cup day fes­tiv­i­ties with a large co­hort ex­pected to en­ter the 2018 Mel­bourne Parkview Ho­tel Fash­ions on the Field.

Fash­ions com­men­ta­tor Stacey Thayer from Wangaratta’s Re­al­ity Fine Cloth­ing is ex­pe­ri­enced with the event and she said judges will have a keen eye for cer­tain el­e­ments of at­tire.

“For the ladies lots of frills are the big thing at the mo­ment with the lace and the frilly hem­lines and sleeves,” she said.

“Boater hats have come in again this year for the ladies and I’m hop­ing there is lots of colour with florals and pat­terns.

“Nice, neat mid-calf length hem­lines have come back in as well.”

With the men, Ms Thayer said the re­ally big tex­tured suits, bright ties and pat­terned shirts are also a big thing.

“We’ve sold a lot of dresses this year, more than I can re­call in the last few years so there are go­ing to be a lot down there.

“We’ve got the lit­tle kids which are al­ways cute but there are a lot of the ma­ture ladies who are go­ing to go in the fash­ions on the field this year.”

Those who have en­tered be­fore might have ideas about what the judges are look for and Ms Theyer said they look at the whole out­fit.

“It’s the hair, the makeup, the shoes and even down to the toe­nails,” she said.

“The toe­nails have to be lovely as well be­cause I have gone to pick some­one in the past and I’ve looked at their shoes and they’re scuffed.

“It gets that close you re­ally have to look into that nitty gritty stuff as well.

“Some­times there are too many colours with the ac­ces­sories and it doesn’t re­ally go with the out­fit, so we look at what flows and goes to­gether.”

A six-race card at Wangaratta starts at 12.30pm and with all the ac­tion from Flem­ing­ton there is bound to be en­ter­tain­ment for ev­ery­one.
