The spring race events are fast approaching, with all the excitement and pomp that accompany them. Spring race events require bold colours, beautiful florals and mind-blowing prints. There are a number of rules, traditions and dress codes to adhere to, such as black and white for Derby Day and a feminine touch for Oaks Day. All of these coupled with the challenge of making a unique fashion statement can make picking what to wear ahead of the big day feel somewhat overwhelming and challenging. With just few weeks to the Australian spring race events, it’s important and wise to prepare yourself and plan ahead for your race day outfits.

Melbourne Cup Day

Melbourne Cup Day is one of the most prestigious spring race events in history and definitely the biggest day of the Spring Racing Carnival. While there’s no colour restriction as on Derby Day, you need to look appropriately dressed in your stunning fashionable outfit.

Melbourne Cup Day is the perfect day to choose vibrant hues of red, yellow, green, pink or purple. To make an instant fashion statement on this peculiar day of the spring race events, it’s best to avoid strapless styles and choose a dress with unique design details while also ensuring that your hemline isn’t too far above the knee. As for your headdress, it’s more fashionable to be creative.
