Race Day Fashion Trends
Whatever Spring Racing Carnival dates you’re attending, it’s important to obey the dress code of the day. Longer skirts are always in style and should be your choice if you’re sporting a revealing or low-cut neckline. Flashing too much flesh is a definite no-no. White on white is possibly this year’s hottest runway-to-race-day trend. From sophisticated white dresses to super chic white flared pantsuits, they’ll keep you cool and stylish when you’re relaxing trackside.

Throwback to the 70s
Flared pants, jumpsuits and pantsuits aren’t the only fashion item providing throwbacks to the 70s this season, with fringing and leather also expected to make the switch from runway to race day fashion. Keep flared pants modern by pairing with fitted or cropped tops. High-waisted styles are generally more flattering, with lightweight fabrics providing instant elegance. The block heel is back in trend, so you can enjoy race day fashion in comfort and style whilst not sinking into the turf. Wedges are having their moment too and look great with a pantsuit, also sparing you the foot pain.

Spring Racing Carnival Style Tips
To avoid ending up making a spring carnival fashion faux pas, remember these four tips:
  • Keep your hemline at a respectable height –- it’s a day at the races, not a night at the club
  • If you have Members entry, you’ll need to cover your shoulders, so avoid strapless numbers
  • Spring carnival race events are daytime functions, so leave the sequins at home
  • Let your headpiece and outfit do the talking by keeping your beauty looking simple and fresh
