PUTTING TOGETHER AN OUTFIT CAN SEEM LIKE AN OVERWHELMING TASK ESPECIALLY IF YOU’VE NEVER BEEN TO THE RACES BEFORE, BUT STARTING WITH ONE ITEM LIKE A BEAUTIFUL HAT OR A UNIQUE CLUTCH AND BUILDING PIECE BY PIECE IS THE SIMPLEST WAY. WHETHER YOU MAKE A BOLD STATEMENT OR OPT FOR AN UNDERSTATED OUTFIT IS AN ENTIRELY INDIVIDUAL CHOICE BUT IF YOU PLAN TO SPEND TIME IN A MEMBERS’ AREAS THE DRESS CODE MUST BE ADHERED TO.

THE EVEREST | OCTOBER 13 | SYDNEY:

FINE FASHION IS SYNONYMOUS WITH HORSE RACING AND THERE’S NO BETTER PLACE TO SHOW OFF YOUR STYLE THAN AT AUSTRALIA’S RICHEST RACE DAY.
OPT FOR AN ELEGANT DRESS, SKIRT AND TOP OR PANTS FOR SOMETHING DIFFERENT. TEAM IT WITH A WIDE BRIMMED HAT, DROP EARRINGS AND KILLER HEELS FOR AN EFFORTLESSLY CHIC LOOK. BAGS IN UNUSUAL SHAPES ARE ALSO ON TREND FOR SPRING.

FOR THE GENTLEMEN IT’S ALL ABOUT SEPARATES, OTHERWISE KNOWN AS THE “BROKEN SUIT.” STAND OUT WITH A UNIQUE POCKET SQUARE OR LAPEL PIN. RACEGOERS ARE ENCOURAGED TO INCORPORATE A SPLASH OF LIGHT BLUE INTO THEIR OUTFITS.
RACE DAY FLOWER: WHTIE ROSE

DERBY DAY | NOVEMBER 3 | MELBOURNE:

DERBY DAY COMES WITH THE MOST WIDELY ADHERED-TO DRESS CODE OF ALL THE RACE DAYS, WITH MOST GUESTS ADOPTING THE BLACK AND WHITE THEME. MONOCHROME MAKES FOR A CHIC STARTING POINT FOR ANY ENSEMBLE, UNEXPECTED HEADWEAR WILL KEEP THE LOOK MODERN.
RACE DAY FLOWER: CORN FLOWER

MELBOURNE CUP | NOVEMBER 6 | MELBOURNE:

UNDOUBTEDLY THE BIGGEST DAY OF THE CARNIVAL, MELBOURNE CUP DAY IS AS MUCH THE FASHIONS ON THE FIELD AS IT IS THE HORSES. BRING YOUR CELEBRATORY BEST IN BOLD COLOURS AND DEFINED SILHOUETTES.
RACE DAY FLOWER: YELLOW ROSE

OAKS DAY | NOVEMBER 8 | MELBOURNE:

OAKS DAY IS TRADITIONALLY ‘LADIES DAY’, SO INDULGE YOUR FEMININE SIDE WITH PASTEL SHADES AND SOFT, FORM- FLATTERING FABRICATIONS. FLORALS ARE A NATURAL CHOICE, BUT IF YOU WANT TO PUT A FRESH SPIN YOUR LOOK - TRY SOLID COLOURS AND ADDING SCULPTURAL HEADWEAR.
RACE DAY FLOWER: PINK ROSE

STAKES DAY | NOVEMBER 10 | MELBOURNE:

STAKES DAY IS THE LEAST FORMAL OF ALL THE DAYS ON THE SPRING RACING CALENDAR, THANKS TO ITS FAMILY- FRIENDLY REPUTATION. LOOK FOR SOPHISTICATED SEPARATES IN LIGHT-HEARTED PRINTS, AND SMALL-SCALE HEADPIECES THAT WON’T OVERWHELM YOUR LOOK. GRAPHIC HAIR SLIDES OR MODERN HEADBANDS ARE A MAJOR TREND THIS SEASON.
RACE DAY FLOWER: RED ROSE
