As the richest race on turf, The Everest is always one of the biggest events in the racing calendar. I was there on hosting duties with 7 Racing over the weekend and it’s the kind of event that requires something big and bold. Enter this colour blocked dress by Rebecca Vallance. Pastel blue and green is always such an impactful colour combination and in this instance its vibrancy was perfect for a gorgeous spring day in Sydney. It’s also a design that embraces one of spring racing’s biggest trends. Hot tip: bows are going to be having a major fashion moment over the coming months.
I wanted to provide some contrast with my accessories and pastel pink was the ideal complementary colour. It adds a feminine touch and lifts the pastel tones in the dress. Continuing the bow theme I opted to wear this headpiece by Somewhere Here, the oversized bow paired with the pink veil added a classic touch to such a playful look. Weaving some more pink into this outfit (if Barbie taught us anything there’s no such thing as too much pink), I opted for a Rabanne bag. With its intricate disk design, it added some texture to my look while tying into the pink hue of my headwear. Spring racing is definitely licence to have a little fun with your outfit, and this look at Everest certainly set the right tone for the coming weeks!
