Don't stress with style inspiration from Derby day through to Stakes day and beyond, we have you covered. We have listed a few of the "Spring racing Fashion rules" to help you with inspiration, but at the end of the day, remember that rules are meant to be broken, if you wear what you love and what makes you feel amazing, you cant go wrong.
Not a fan of the horse racing myself, but what I do love about the Spring racing carnival, is seeing Melbourne come alive, with everyone taking the opportunity to dress to the nines and go all out.The races are the perfect time to people watch with so many gorgeous outfits in one place.
A few extra tips for keeping yourself comfortable through the day:
- Consider your shoes carefully, especially if you will be standing all day, also If you will be on the grass day all day, we suggest a wedge or block heel or alternatively try a cap for your stiletto heel, our little secret have a huge range.
- Pace yourself, drink plenty of water through out the day, a great tip is to match a water for every champagne, not only will it keep you hydrated but will also have you feeling fresh for longer.
- If your wear support wear, make sure its comfortable, there's nothing worse then feeling like your being strangled all day, its important to not only look good, but be comfortable too. Both Bella Bodies & Miss Scarlett did it have a great range.
- Opt for a bigger clutch that will fit all your essentials and has either a chain to hook over your shoulder or a wrist strap, for ease, juggling your champagne, your clutch & your form guide while trying to Instagram, isn't easy...
