THE STYLIST DIARIES | Winter racing style
Westfield stylist Georgia gives her hot tips to stay fashioanble on the field this racing season.
Winter racing season is here and we’re lucky that it doesn’t get too cold here in Brisbane, so keep that in mind when choosing your outfit.
An all-time favourite racing theme is the classic black and white. When you’re limited to two colour options, a fun way to spice things up is to use different fabrics, silhouettes, prints, textures, embellishments and trims or even some metallic accessories.
Black on black or white on white is a statement and very chic. If you want to wear all black, try choosing different textures to rock this look. A simple jumpsuit or dress with statement earrings and an edgy millinery in fabrics such as leather, velvet or lace. White will look fresh and elegant and will make you stand out from the crowd. Pair your white look with a gold, silver or rose gold accessories and complete your outfit with a classic or mix it up with a stand out black head piece and accessories.
