Giddy up: Get dressed for Spring Racing
Spring Racing season is upon us and while we will be celebrating the event differently this year, there’s no better excuse to get glammed up whilst cheering on the crowd favourite. We’ve pulled together three must-have trends you can rock whilst indulging in a divine cheese platter with your nearest and dearest (don’t worry, we won’t have you locked down in a gown!).
The statement sleeve
This trend returns season after season and we aren’t mad about it. Nothing claims the title of “understated drama” quite like a puff shoulder. Roll with a stunning maxi with statement sleeves or an asymmetrical bell sleeve top with jeans. With an abundance of styles to choose from, you can decide on the appropriate amount of pizzazz needed to brighten your day. As you get ready to take your bet, retire those good ol' matching lounge sets or the oversized tee and bike shorts combo, and get primed and prepped! We’re certain it’ll boost your mood. Easily paired with any type of heel, it’s the ultimate all-rounder. Shop statement sleeves at Seed Heritage, Country Road or Myer.

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, pastel colours are what dreams are made of. From lemons to mints and baby pinks, we’re all aboard the colour train this season. The best thing about this trend is that you can ultimately tie it into any outfit or accessory. Whether you’re planning to rock a flowy pastel frock or super cute, blue kitten heels, we suggest heading to Betts, Seed Heritage, Country Road, Portmans, Wittner, Jo Mercer.

Whether you choose to don an elaborate fascinator (for traditions sake) or a subtle set of pearl encrusted hair pins, accessories are a must for Spring Racing, no matter how casual the event. From Blair Waldorf inspired, padded headbands to timeless, oversized earrings, nothing pulls a look together better than a couple of coordinated embellishments. While a hat is the perfect way to stay oh-so-chic whilst being sun-smart, a silk scarf or hair clip is an equally effortless way to tame the mane whilst waiting for that well overdue haircut! Find our top picks at Seed Heritage, Portmans, Lovisa, Target, Country Road, Myer, Glue Store.
