Melbourne Cup Day Fashion Trends

Melbourne Cup Day is one of the most prestigious events in horse racing history and the biggest day of the Spring Racing Carnival. A real one-of-a-kind type of day, Cup Day is a must-attend event for every fashion-loving woman. Planning your outfit is essential for Melbourne Cup as the day calls for your style A-game. This day is your chance to go bold and show off your sartorial flair. After all, Cup Day is as much about Fashions on the Field as it is about the races.

For the race that stops the nation, you want an outfit that will do the same. Melbourne Cup Day is the perfect day to inject some colour into your outfit and accessories. Don’t be afraid to go bold with it and choose vibrant block hues of red, yellow, green, pink, or purple. Your outfit should make an instant style statement when you walk into Flemington, so get a little creative. Keep your silhouette defined but choose a dress with unique design details. Ruffles, flounces, statement sleeves and laser cut details are all winning look. As mentioned, also watch that your hemline doesn’t fall too far above your knee and avoid strapless styles and anything with glitter or sequins. You want to look festive and fashionable, not like you’re headed to a nightclub. When it comes to your headdress for Cup Day, it pays to be brave and get creative. Choose a unique fascinator that’s more artwork than hairpiece.
