Racing dress code: feminine

We chat to Westfield Queensland Stylist Annabel Falco about the softer colour palette and ladylike glamour that typifies Treasury Brisbane Ladies Oaks Day race day.

What sets Ladies Day apart from other carnival events?

Ladies Day is all about celebrating women and is considered one of the most glamorous race days. Femme, flirty and on-trend florals are always a winning combination where luxe details such as lace, feathers and sophisticated cuts will set you apart from the rest.

Fashion faux pas we should all avoid this carnival:

Uncomfortable heels and dressing for the wrong season.

If you could style anyone for this event, who would you choose and why?

Jesinta Franklin. I love that she takes risks and pushes fashion boundaries.

What advice would you give to Fashions on the Field entrants?

Keep trends in mind but go with what suits you and what you feel most comfortable and confident in.

Fave Westfield Chermside brands for feminine racewear?

Alice McCall, Mimco and Aje.
