Fashion, What I Wore

What I Wore: 2022 Oaks Day

3rd November, 2022

Oaks Day is traditionally always ladies’ day so the dress code is always quite feminine. I wanted to honour that but also embrace something that wasn’t overly soft, and had a bit more structure so this pink Versace suit fit the brief. I loved the kaleidoscope of pinks and how they provided bold contrast against each other. Also the texture of the tweed allowed the suit to pop. And who doesn’t love a power suit moment? The mini hemline is right on trend, while suiting is definitely one of my go-to event looks.

I opted for a contrasting colour shoe option, so I went with a pair of gold Jimmy Choo heels with a tassel detail. The pointed toe worked well to complement the more structured feel of the suit, while the tassels add a dramatic touch. The crystal top handle bag added another textural element while providing some contrast against the suit. As far as headwear went, I wanted to embrace a hat in this instance so I opted for an oversized black straw hat by Ezara J. As the final finishing touch, a beautiful Jaeger Le Coultre timepiece.
