MELBOURNE CUP DRESS CODE 2018
One of the most anticipated races of the year is almost here, which means it's time to put your fashion foot forward in your Spring Racing best. While the focus is the horse race, the real fun is in watching the fashion on the field.
Getting ready is just half the fun! Melbourne Cup is all about maximum impact - stay modern by wearing unexpected colour combinations and brave prints. There are, however, some strict do's and don'ts, so keep tuned while we take you through the racing day dress code.
WHAT TO WEAR
Melbourne Cup hues are key! The colours of the season are candy pink and tangerine, so make sure to keep your outfit on trend and pack a punch with colour. On the other hand, don't be afraid to mix it up by colour blocking, pattern play and matching co-ord sets.
Not ready for head-to-toe brights? Nod to the trend with a statement earring, fascinator or bag.
MELBOURNE CUP DO'S + DON'TS
ONE. BE BRAVE, DO YOU
Be brave in colour and clashing prints this Melbourne Cup day.
TWO. DRESSING UP DOESN'T HAVE TO MEAN A DRESS
Suits don't have to be serious. Mix it up and try the biggest trend of the season - the power suit.
THREE. OVERDRESSED? NO SUCH THING
Make a statement and step out in exaggerated tones and patterns.
FOUR. HATS AREN'T JUST FOR BAD HAIR DAYS
Finish off your look with a classic boater or wide brim hat.
WHAT WE LOVE
Perfect for Melbourne Cup, our newest arrivals are all about clashing prints mixed with relaxed PJ dressing. Be bold and make a statement in bright pops of colour (hello Tangerine), silky patterns and pastel perfect headbands.
Mix and match our latest co-ord sets this race day with the PJ suit set and tangerine top + skirt combination. The Amalfi Knit Top is your absolute go-to pairing.
