It’s the race that stops a nation and without a doubt it’s the perfect reason to get dolled up. Melbourne Cup is the biggest day in the spring racing carnival and it’s always a lot of fun to get dressed up for as the dress code is all about colour and having a lot of fun with your look. This is the day to really take a step into bold territory and wear vibrant shades and prints with statement accessories. So if you’ve yet to lock in your outfit, I’ve got you covered.
Melbourne Cup is the ideal time to embrace a dress that’s got wow factor. Go for lots of colour, interesting prints and embrace texture and striking finishes. Whilst your look still has to be polished it’s also the ideal time to have fun with fashion.
From sky high stilettos to a 60s style block heel and an architectural mule, it’s time to up your shoe game when it comes to Cup Day. Definitely have fun with statement footwear but also make sure to keep comfort in mind—you need something that will stand up to a long day at the races.
Headwear is a must but you don’t have to confine yourself to a hat. Think everything from headbands to a gorgeous turban as the perfect adornment to pair with your outfit at Flemington.
