Melbourne cup is one of the biggest and most fashionable days in the Australian calendar and if you’re heading to the famous races then no doubt your outfit planning is well underway. Still a little unsure of what to wear to celebrate in style? Don’t panic, we’ve got your back. Whether you’re in the mood for feminine lace or want to go bold in a striking suit, these looks are fashion forward, memorable and hopefully, a little lucky. 

Suits You

Powerful and in control, rocking a fabulous suit to the races is not only a top trend for 2018 but also a sassy way to show those bookies who’s boss. Whether you double up on pretty florals or go bold with colour block, a suit is a race day look with a twist.
