Spring Racing Carnival Fashion Edit 2017

 

This year's Spring Racing Season is around the corner and now is the time to search for your perfect Spring Racing outfit. If you are looking at saving the dollar your best way to find the perfect outfit is to look inside your wardrobe. You may find some key pieces like a top, a skirt or a dressy pant and only need to purchase the remaining parts to complete the entire look. Alternatively choose to buy a piece that can be worn again without the added bling of Spring Racing accessories.   

THIS YEAR'S TRENDS

This year is without limits. Florals play a big part in this season trend, but so do monochromes (one block colour) and lace. Ruffles and feminine frill sleeves add a touch of dressy and soft feel to the finished look. The choice is yours! Big, bold & bright colours are in, metallics are also appearing to be a big hit this season. In terms of accessories lace or metallic headband or a crown are the winners. Another hit are also bold statement pieces and jewelled earrings. Finish the look with understated black or nude sandals, depending on the colour of your outfit and a small clutch with some metallic accents in the same tones.

TIPS ON CREATING YOUR OUTFITS

If you own a nice dress, it's easy. All you need to do is purchase accessories.  Buy any dress from our selection of racing outfits, add a metallic belt and you have instantly created a perfect Spring Racing Carnival outfit. When it comes to tops the rule is simple. Go for floral or bold coloured prints and combine them with plain, monochrome (one block colour) skirt or a dressy pant. If you already own a printed or floral skirt, combine it with monochrome (one block colour) top, preferably one that has a frill or a ruffled sleeve to create a statement.  Then add your matching accessories and you are done!

We have created a special Spring Racing Edit from all our current Spring/Summer 2017 collections on our website that will help you choose the garments appropriate to wear during this year's Spring Racing season, as well as being able to wear them again for other occasions. For more ideas head to 'Spring Racing 2017' collection located under 'Shop Styles' section on our website.

If you are purely looking to wear a dress for one of the race days, head to our 'Dresses' section under 'Shop Styles'.  We have grouped all dresses in one area to help find the best one for you.

Finding the perfect outfit doesn't have to be hard or expensive this season. Just be creative and think to yourself, can I wear this piece again and dress it up or down when needed? We hope you find our tips helpful. The Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival is the  most colourful time of the year. Enjoy it and good luck with the horse betting!
