Spring Racing Dress Guide: 12 dresses under $90

Last week shopping blog Shop to Shop asked me to share my Spring Racing fasion tips with them. Enjoy my article below as first seen on Shop to Shop Melbourne. 

The Spring racing season is here! For the next couple of weeks the levels of excitement in Melbourne will rise to all new heights. Melbourne is in the middle of a fashion, filly, fascinator, finger-food, french champagne frenzy!

To help lessen the stress of finding the perfect outfit I’ve put together a little guide  (with dress options all under $100!) of what to wear each day to help steer you in the right fashion direction:

 

Derby Day

Derby Day is all about black and white. Wear together in every possible combination. The look is sleek and refined. With the exception of a bold lip or eye, no extra colour is needed.

The Melbourne Cup

The Melbourne Cup is a huge celebration, so think party brights. Wear big, bold colours and experiment with patterns. The more colourful the outfit the better.

Oaks Day

Oaks Day is all about the ladies fashion. It can go one of two ways- think soft, feminine and floral, or think super high fashion. This is the day to bring your A-game with the latest silhouette or your flirtiest frock.

Stakes Day

Stakes Day is family day and, as a result, it’s appropriate to be a bit more relaxed and fun with your dress. This is a day where anything goes, so wear a relaxed loose dress, don your sandals and you’ll take out the 4th day in style and comfort. Think shift dresses and jumpsuits.
