So as promised, I am continuing to take all of you all step by step on a fashion journey through some of my favourite Melbourne Cup Carnival picks. Hopefully you found some goodies in the Derby Day list, and now we are heating things up on Cup Day. We are not just adding a splash of colour, but maybe a whole paint pot! We will look at experimenting with shapes, structures, textures, and colour blocks. On Melbourne Cup day you can do it all!
Think bright, bold, looks that are real show stoppers. Being the race that stops the nation, we need an equally as nation-stopping outfit for you. Over the years the Spring fashions have obviously evolved, but some things remain the same time and time again. That is class…sophistication…and elegance. All essential factors in a Melbourne Cup do! Of course, a beautiful headpiece to top off the look is but a given.
Cup Day is the main raceday in the four day Melbourne Cup Carnival (raceday number 2), where everyone is buzzing and in high spirits. You want an outfit that reflects that, and one that you can enjoy the day in because let’s be honest, you will be wearing it for more than a few hours! Something fresh, Spring-like, feminine, and easy on the eye.
So take a look at my top picks, and hopefully something tickles your fancy!
