It’s that time of year again, spring racing season! No matter what budget you’re on, there are so many ways you can create an eye-grabbing and unique outfit. With the fashion stakes highest at this time of year, continue below to see how you can stand out this year. 


Elegant Headpiece 

Gone are the days where the only option for a stand-out headpiece, was a towering and uncomfortable fascinator. These days, a simple headband, elegant hat or understated fascinator are all great options to participate in this tradition. 











Sling Bag

A day at the races guarantees a few things – commotion, crowds and quite possibly a few drinks! Clutches are easily lost, often until it’s too late. The solution? Choose a bold sling bag to make sure it only goes where you go.












The Perfect Dress  

Spring is the perfect season to showcase gorgeous florals, lace and colours. It’s important to remember, as of 2014, Victoria Racing Club initiated a no-midriff policy and still enforces other strict outfit guidelines. The best options? Flowing maxi dresses, peplum shaped dresses and high necklines are the real winners.












Comfortable Heels 

Navigating grass and being in your heels all day is never fun. Avoid having to walk home with the dreaded bare feet. When deciding on the best footwear for your outfit, opt for thicker heels, which are not too high. The spring races are also the perfect event for a wedge, bold pattern and bright colour to add an element of surprise.
