One of the best things about spring racing is that it’s the perfect excuse to get dolled up in a gorgeous outfit. However with so many different race days on the Spring Racing calendar it’s not just about picking something that ticks all the style boxes, it’s also important to make sure your outfit adheres to each day’s specific dress code. So whether you’re heading to Melbourne Cup or Oaks Day, here’s how to make sure you get your outfit right.
Derby day is traditionally a black and white dress code. You can either go for an all black ensemble with a few key white pieces to accent your outfit or go for a full monochrome look.
MELBOURNE CUP DAY
Cup Day is all about colour! It’s all about having fun with your outfit so opt for colour or a vibrant print. Melbourne Cup is the craziest day as far as dress codes go in the spring racing calendar so dare to go bold.
Oaks Day is ladies’ day so its all really pretty and feminine. You can’t go wrong with pastels and florals but this year, why not pack a punch by mixing maroon and blush pink, but work it back with floral accents to keep it soft and pretty.
