Choosing what to wear for the races shouldn’t be complicated. That’s why we’ve selected stylish options to have you looking and feeling great, plus a range to help you host pre or post-race festivities at your place.
FASHIONS ON THE FIELD
From strict dress-codes (we’re looking at you, Derby Day) to more casual affairs, black and white is always a winner. Make it monochromatic with black and white dresses or outfits made up entirely of one-tone.
Melbourne Cup Day is all about going over the top. Treat yourself to an outfit that’s bright, bold or abundantly floral like this Jane Lamerton number.
For Oaks Day you might consider something a little more feminine, like dainty prints, pastel and lace; Simply Vera Vera Wang has a Spring/Summer collection just waiting to be snapped on the field.
Stakes Day is considered one of the more casual dress days where a dressy top, skirt and simple headpiece will serve you well.
IN FINE FORM
There are so many fuss-free ways for him to wear that summer feeling this season. Start with a pair of chinos (in camel or cream), topped with a crisp white shirt. Tan accessories elevate the look, while a hat brings a bit of fun (and practical sun protection) to the whole ensemble. Complete his outfit with a light blazer in blue or navy (and please let it be linen).
SET THE SCENE
Taking your festivities to the field? Pack your picnic lunch in Shaynna’s Portsea Picnic Basket. Not only does it look fabulous, it holds all of your tasty treats and white melamine servingware – san glass.
Getting ready for the main event is half the fun. And if you’ve kindly put your hand up to host a pre-races champagne brekky, you’ll want to start with the right accessories. Shaynna Blaze has you covered with her Portsea collection, combining the textures of both marble and wood grain. And RCR crystal glassware is perfect for elevating the humble breakfast Bellini.
