Chilled champagne, men in suits, lady-like fashion and an excuse to wear hats: in our opinion, Spring Racing Carnival is Christmas come (6 weeks) early.
Whether you observe the traditional colour codes or you prefer to stand out from the style set, take your style cues from the fashion A-list, where class is essential and elegance reigns supreme.
With this in mind, we have rounded up some of our favourite trackside glamour moments for a little lesson in what we like to call our “Style Commandments: Spring Racing Edition”.
Thou Shalt Wear Colour.
Pastels are a sure fire way to land yourself on the best-dressed list. Drawing sartorial inspiration from the likes of Bec, Nadia and Jen, play with soft shades of pink, ice blue and pale violet for a fresh and feminine trackside look.
Our style pick: The Zillah Dress in Rose Quartz
Thou shalt wear Monochrome
Monochrome has long cemented itself as style MVP due to its ability to make you look extra chic on minimum effort. Banish boring from your black and white vocabulary and play with tonal dressing ( à la racing royalty Kate Waterhouse), dramatic silhouettes and bold prints.
Out style pick: The Lucille Dress
Thou shalt play with texture
Nothing says lady-like elegance quite like lace. Much chicer than your Nanna’s doilies, this season sees lace reinvented in fresh cuts, colours and textures. Opt for a head to toe tonal ensemble with the gorgeous Lisa Hamilton as your style inspiration, for an outfit that is anything but old fashioned.
Our style pick: The Constance Dress in White
