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

DERBY DAY

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.

CUP DAY

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.

OAKS DAY

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.
