Oaks Day fashion is about feminine cuts and pretty pastels, it’s elegant and feminine. Venus & Mars has all the latest trends in chic and pretty race dresses, headwear, shoes and accessories. With over 80 fashion labels including Bec & Bridge, Ginger & Smart, Manning Cartell, Blessed are the Meek, we have an Oaks Day outfit that is perfect for your style.
Feminine Race Day Fashion
Spring time florals, romantic lace and voluminous silhouettes will all be on show at Oaks Day 2015. Hemlines should still sit below the knee to ensure a sophisticated look, so the A-line dresses and skirt trend sees the over-the-knee full skirt
set to be a huge hit. It’s all about pretty pastels and nudes. Figure hugging neutrals and lace
make a killer combination, while flowing blush-pink silk maxis bring some grace to the occasion. The current 70s trend continues into Oaks Day fashion with pairings of these soft flowing dresses with pretty halos or floppy hats. White on white is hot for Oaks Day, so add some volume to your outfit with a chic and pretty white bustier
Don’t forget your headwear
Oaks Day is usually all about the hat first and the outfit comes second, so choose your headwear wisely and make sure that your hat and outfit complement each other. Understated millinery is popular this season, moving away from the large sculptural fascinators of past Oaks Days for a simpler, more elegant look. Metallic, grecian inspired headbands are the perfect addition to a romantic, feminine look and complement pastel shades like pink and lilac perfectly. If you’re looking for something a little edgier, black lace ears will still be a major trend and are super easy to wear. Browse through our range of headbands and fascinators online.
