The Spring Racing season has well and truly set upon us here in Melbourne, which means it's time to step up the style stakes.
The key to mastering race-wear style is all about incorporating key accessories into an outfit, so I've teamed up with Australian label, and accessory go-to, Olga Berg to bring you my fashion edit for each of the key race events: Derby Day, Melbourne Cup, Oaks Day and Stakes Day.
The first major event on the racing calendar, Derby Day is all about tradition and a strict monochrome dress code.
With this dress code in mind, I've selected this very pretty 'LUCILLE' feather veil as the millinery option, and 'IMOGENE' diamond clutch to complete the look. If you're feeling bold, a red lip is always the perfect accompaniment to black and white.
For me, almost anything goes for Melbourne Cup! You can generally expect to see a lot of colour on Cup day, which is why I've opted for contrast, with eternally chic all black, and a splash of sparkle.
I'm wearing the 'BRIELLA' lace crown and 'ASHTON' sparkle clutch for the ultimate statement accessory.
Also referred to as 'Ladies Day', Oaks Day is all about embracing feminitiy, and nothing screams that more than an oversized bow and crystal embellished clutch.
I'm wearing the 'AUBREE' bow headband and 'IZZY' crystal box clutch.
Play around with lace, pretty pinks and spring-inspired florals to complete the look.
Perhaps the most casual of all race occasions, A boater hat is the perfect way to style a Stakes Day look and this one, with subtle lace detail is perfection! What's better, this hat will take you across any fun-in-the-sun occasion.
I'm wearing the boater hat and 'REESE' metal frame clutch.
Spring Racing is the perfect excuse to dress up and have a lot of fun experimenting with key accessories and millinery. As always when it comes to style, I'm a big believer in expressing your own personality, so be brave and bold!
