Stand out in the style stakes this Spring Racing Carnival.
From the elegance of Derby Day and Ladies Day to the drama of the Melbourne Cup, here’s how to dress for three key dates this spring carnival
Adhering to the race-day call for a monochromatic palette is the perfect opportunity to play with silhouette and sparkle. A jaunty hat gives the look a hint of the glamorous femme fatale.
If ever there was an opportunity to go big or go home, this is it. Opt for some drama with voluminous silhouettes in colour or print, oversized bows and statement accessories.
Ladies Day calls for fun yet chic attire. Think traditional spring looks of pastels and ﬂorals. Try pairing a midi-length dress with a kitten heel for a modern (and more comfortable) approach.
