The race that stops the world
Caulfield Cup Day
The Caulfield Cup has no strict dress code, yet over the last few years, a trend has developed. Matching sets, thick strong colors, and color blocking. Bold fashion statements will be chosen during this particular day on the racing carnival calendar.
Victoria Derby Day
Ditching your colors and pulling out your most striking white and black grab. This day is a strictly monochrome affair so go all white, all black or a mix of both!
Melbourne Cup Day
Time to bring out the big guns for the Melbourne Cup since it is one of the biggest events of the year, it's "the race that stops the nation." This event is your opportunity to be experimental and try those glamorous outfits you've always wanted to. You'll see striking headpieces, sparkles, gowns, and sequins.
The day to let your feminine side show is during "Ladies Day," or better known as Oaks Day at the races. Pastels and florals are the day's mood so leave your blacks and navy tones behind. Think lavender, lace, baby blue, pinks, frills, yellow, volume, and prints are welcomed.
Shakes Day or "Family Day," as it has been coined, is more relaxed and an opportunity to embrace spring and dress fun and flirty. It is the last major event of carnival season so have fun!
