Stakes Day style with Lana Wilkinson
Stakes Day marks the finale of the Melbourne Cup Carnival with celebration at its core!
Fun takes the front seat in the fashion stakes with race goers letting their hair (and heels) down for a family friendly day out.
Stakes Day calls for playful brights and a more relaxed race day look. Stakes Day Fashions on the Field invites little trendsetters and their families to flaunt their style.
With a fun and friendly atmosphere, Stakes Day brings an abundance of activity and excitement to the track, so opt for a more relaxed, playful ensemble.
To show you how to inject personality into your Stakes Day outfit, we partnered with celebrity stylist Lana Wilkinson who created this unique race day look with pieces from some of her favourite Westfield brands
Ebony Wears: Forever New jumpsuit, Country Road shoes, Marc Jacobs from David Jones bag, Mimco earrings, Greogory Ladner from David Jones headscarf
The headscarf is a must have this racing season.
Try tying a printed scarf to your clutch, wrapping around your waist as a quirky belt, or integrating into your hairstyle as Lana has done with this chic topknot and scarf up do.
A headscarf is a great way to inject more colour and personality into an outfit, and provides an alternative to pricier headwear that can be worn year-round.
A bright jumpsuit is practical, but playful, making it a great choice for Stakes Day fashion. Elevate the outfit with an additional pop of colour in the way of this luxurious Marc Jacobs bag to complete the look.
