Whether you’re watching with friends or heading trackside, we’ve got you covered with our tips on the latest trends for this season’s races!
Derby Day: Black is the new black.
Saturday 29th October
Derby Day has – and always will be – about black and white. This year, why not make the most of this monochromatic contrast with some prints that pop, and a fun little fascinator to match. Gentlemen, your best bet is to top your suit off with something stylish, whether it’s a sharp black tie or even a hat.
Cup Day: Be bright and bold.
Tuesday 1st November
Melbourne Cup Day is racing’s most colourful day, so don’t be afraid to let your true colours show! Dresses in fresh florals, large prints and vivid hues, along with matching fascinators or hats will complete every lady’s look. And why should the girls have all the fun? Guys should go for bold suits, bright shirts and solid colour ties. Don’t be afraid to wear something that will stop people in their tracks. After all, it is the race that stops the nation.
Oaks Day: Find pretty with patterns.
Thursday 3rd November
Traditionally known as Ladies Day, Oaks Day is the perfect occasion to wear something on the more feminine side. Think classic shapes and elegant patterns. For men this Oaks Day, mix it up with some patterns of your own with a colourful check shirt.
Stakes Day: Floral is in full bloom.
Saturday 5th November
Bright pops of colour are always a popular pick at this time of year. So when Stakes Day comes around it’s the perfect time to try something lively, whether it’s a flower inspired fascinator or a floral print dress. Guys should dress a little brighter too, with a coloured check, matched with suits that are on the lighter side.
