Oaks Day style with Lana Wilkinson

The tradition of Oaks Day is celebrated with a soft take on feminine dressing.

Informally known as Ladies Day, Oaks Day lets women take the fashion stakes up a notch, encouraging a heightened appreciation for old world glamour.

Oaks Day is highlighted as a key race day for the faces of fashion with the crowning of Myer Fashions on the Field Women’s Race Wear National Winner.

To give you a modern approach to Oaks Day fashion, we partnered with celebrity stylist Lana Wilkinson who created this dramatic race day look with pieces from some of her favourite Westfield brands.

The dress code for Oaks Day is floaty, spring-like and everything and anything that embodies femininity.


Ebony Wears: Aje from David Jones dress, Country Road Shoes, Furla bag, Mimco earrings, Morgan & Tyler from Myer or David Jones hat*

Lana centred her Oaks Day look around this Aje maxi dress with its bold plunging back. Retro-inspired print, and girly bow. Showing hints of skin allow this look to stay classy but still playful.

This exaggerated maxi is paired with a structured boater hat, contrasting the floaty fabric beneath.

Boater hats make the perfect hat this season, with their elegant, feminine shape, appropriate for all race days.

The Furla mini is a race day must, making the perfect clutch to hold all your race day necessities while adding a touch of luxury to any outfit.
