Derby Day style with Lana Wilkinson
Start the racing season with the most prestigious of race days, Derby Day.
Get prepped for action both on and off the track with the elite Myer Fashions on the Fields – a showcase of the most impressive race day looks to kick-start the racing season.
The dress code is monochrome, with both men and women embracing a sophisticated black, white and soft grey colour palette. The absence of colour demands a think-outside-the-box approach to style, but how best to make a statement while maintaining the sophisticated dress code.
We partnered with celebrity stylist Lana Wilkinson who created a unique Derby Day look with pieces from some of her favourite Westfield brands.
Using clever textural plays, dazzling embellishment and a hint of quirky eclecticism, Lana demonstrates her take on Derby Day flair while sticking to dress code rules.
Ebony wears: Thurley dress, Jo Mercer shoes, Country Road bag, Lovisa earrings, Mimco hat.
Wearing white doesn’t mean your silhouette needs to be overly tailored. This stunning white lace, Thurley dress featuring ruffles throughout, paired with a black embellished cap adds girlish playfulness to a race day that is often approached with more mature looks.
The cane bag is this season’s must have and is a great bag choice if you’re keen to choose accessories that have longevity well after race season.
For shoes, Lana kept the look practical with elegant strappy details and a sturdy block heel.
