With the Melbourne Cup Carnival now in full swing, it’s time to sort out your outfits! This year I am going to two events, my local cup in Geelong and Oaks Day in Melbourne. I have never been to a Melbourne racing event before, so I’m really excited to get all dressed up and hit the track!
In celebration of the racing season, I’ve put together a little style guide for three of the main events. Hopefully, you can find some inspiration, as it can be a really difficult thing to shop for!
First up is The Melbourne Cup, which is all about bright colours, bold prints and statement-making silhouettes. Experiment with fun accessories and don’t be afraid to try something a little out of your comfort zone! Check out these dresses at Beginning Boutique.
The Derby Day dress code may be traditional black and white, but that doesn’t mean your outfit has to fall short! White lace is a great option for this event as well as quirky prints and unique shapes. Go for something chic over classic, Dissh have a great selection.
Oaks Day – otherwise known as Ladies Day – is all about embracing your femininity. Midi dresses and skirts are an on-trend MUST for keeping it classy, try a block colour or fun print. Florals are also great for keeping to the theme and anything that you can twirl in gets my tick of approval! Check out Showpony for more ideas.
