Spring Racing Carnival, what to wear?

It’s September and that can only mean one thing, Spring Racing Carnival is back for another year.

So what are you going to wear?

The great thing about the Spring Racing Carnival is it’s a fantastic opportunity to try something new and bold.

This season’s trend is all about the 70’s! Think fringed skirts, bell sleeves and 70’s floral prints.

If you’re not feeling adventurous with a race day outfit, then choose an outfit which is classic and elegant. A dress or outfit which makes you feel good and suits you will work better than going current trend and missing the mark.

We love a classy knee-length hemline, capped sleeves and a feminine silhouette.

Our red dress and ivory dress both create a chic, elegant and comfortable look, which can be accessorised with an amazing hat or fascinator.







Derby day is traditionally a black and white affair, and some traditions just shouldn’t be broken. Look at styling a white-on-white outfit, as it is still the most on trend option.

If you’re heading to a Melbourne Cup event this year, thenit’s all about colour. You could choose a bold colour but 2015 sees a lot of pastel as well. The Luxe hippie 70’s floral prints and Japanese inspired floral prints, are a great choice for Melbourne Cup 2015.

Our teal dress creates pretty pastel spring look, while our Japanese Garden dress and Iris Hibiscus dress will have you dressed in this season’s hottest trend.
