The Spring Racing Carnival has well and truly kicked off, but don’t worry if you’ve missed the mark or just running a little behind, we’ve got you sorted for the top three days of the season! From Derby Day, the iconic Melbourne Cup, to Oaks day – here is a little last minute inspiration.
Saturday marks the beginning of cup week, welcomed in traditional Derby Day style and a monochrome palette of course! Derby Day is the day of elegance and sophistication for women – what easier way to create a fresh, modern and “lady like look” then wearing a white dress? Thankfully, Zimmermann has answered our prayers! The Winsome Cinch Vine Dress is your one-stop-shop, ticking all the Derby Day boxes. With such a statement dress, one should style it back with something simple and elegant and The Blissful Hour Hair Crown from Molten Store is the perfect addition.
Cup day… This is this day to make a bold move. Inject some colour, don a spring print or make a statement with your headpiece. The goal is to make your strongest fashion statement, yet keep it sophisticated. Camargue has got the goods! The Isa Arfen trousers as seen at Paris Fashion Week are the perfectly daring, and tasteful focal point of your outfit. Team with a crisp shirt and a wide brim hat for a sleek cup day look.
Ladies this is your day! Oaks Day is all about expressing your own personal style. Being traditionally known as ladies day it is important to embody all things feminine and stylish, individually suited to your personality! Exciting I know – it’s a free rein on your behalf. We suggest keeping it elegant in Aje.’s Otranto Top and Marino Skirt in Nude. Jewellery wise, think minimalism and stick to the golden tones with Natasha Schweitzer’s Alex Earrings.
