It’s the night before Melbourne Cup and you’re frantically searching through your wardrobe trying to decide what to wear.

Add to that the complexity of venue; a bar, the office or the racecourse and it becomes all too overwhelming, instead of walking out feeling fabulous of one of the biggest days of the year you chuck on whatever you can find and just hope you blend in….

This year will be different, this year Melbourne Cup is a day for you to look and feel fabulous and to stand out in a good way!

To make the process easier we’ve come up with some top looks for Melbourne Cup 2018 for every venue to suit your body shape.

Racewear Ideas #1: For the Office

The Races can be a chance to show off your off-duty style. Be bolder with vivid colours or patterns. Not sure about how bold style will be received at work? Go ultra boss-chic with tailored summer suit in white.

Racewear Ideas #2: At the Bar

A fabulous but often overlooked way to enjoy the Races is the chill afternoon or evening with close ones at the bar. Keep it comfortable with some pants or a jumpsuit, in a colour you feel comfortable and fun in. Feeling the dress vibes? A wrap dress will be the perfect trendy and easy racewear piece for you.

Racewear Ideas #3: At the Racecourse

This is the real deal. No pattern, shape or colour is “too much” at the Racecourse. Go all out and experiment outside of your comfort zone to surprise others but most importantly, yourself. Spoil yourself with one-of-a-kind pieces from designers such as THE FIFTH, Diane Von Furstenberg or Veronika Maine, or mix-and-match affordable pieces to keep things interesting. Happy Shopping!
