Accessories & Head Wear
Remember to accessorise minimally if you have an extravagant dress or if you’re wearing something simple and classic, this is where you can play with statement shoes and an eye-catching headpiece.
Make sure your shoes are not only fabulous but are flattering to your legs, that they extend the leg and don’t cut your legs short visually.
The great thing about this spring racing season and Melbourne Cup fashion is that any colour you can think of will be acceptable as colour-blocking leads the racing trends. So don’t worry about matching everything, have fun with colour provided it is complementary to your skin complexion.
When it comes to dressing for Spring Racing we’re all looking to make a statement, as fashion is a leading component of the sport.
Making a statement isn’t necessarily wearing what magazines and retailers are showcasing, you need to dress for your shape and skin tone. When dressing you should aim to enhance your best features and primarily feel comfortable and feel confident in what you are wearing.
