Spring Racing Style

Giddy Up, Spring Racing is here!

Spring is one of the busiest times for a stylist. Fashion week, new season launches and of course, racing season.

This month I thought I would give you a few simple ideas for how to put together your trackside look.

Modern Romance.

Inspired by all things old worldly and romantic, this look is all about layering lace and ruffles and finishing with decadent accessories. Choose pieces that are lightweight and not too figure hugging. Stick to a colour palette of black, white and soft pastels, missing with floral print works great. I love gold accessories for this look but it would also work really well with a boater and big earrings. More is more here!

Classic Derby

I opted for a classic look for this Darby Day outfit. A key point to keeping a look like this simple but not boring is in the detail. A great print like this polka dot teamed with solid black accessories balances out the look. Alternatively you could try a plain black or white dress with a print on the bag and shoes.

 Tip: If you like your legs to look longer, try a nude heel that blends in to your skin tone.

Unexpected Accessories

I love that belts are making a comeback. I use them a lot to cover up elastic waistbands on dresses and skirts. The key to wearing the thick banded styles is to make sure you keep the fabric underneath light and loose, anything too bulky or skin tight and the look becomes a bit frumpy. These lace bunny ears from Dotti are really cute and a great option for someone who isn’t into really into the headwear thing as it still respects the dress code.

Dressed Down

Some of us have Cup Day plans that call for a hint of track-side flair but in a far less formal way. A boater is such a great style that relaxes a formal look. I have also chosen this western style belt and fun embellished clutch, the colours all compliment the tonal outfit.
