Spring Racing Carnival is all about tradition. This means adhering to ladylike sophistication. But don’t let that deter you, ladies! There are some amazing frocks with clean lines, beautiful tailoring and beautiful creativity. We’re always going to suggest something fresh, new and different.
Femininity is back this season with ruffles, florals and mesh overlays. A one-shouldered dress in a flattering fabric such as crepe or jacquard will stand out in any crowd. Could also opt for a midi-skirt look with a bodice top in seasoned patterns. For a more masculine spin (it’s 2018, ladies!) the power suit is back in action. Why not try a beautiful tailored suit with a wide legged pant and killer heels.
Don’t feel you need to fork out a fortune though to get that killer outfit. There are plenty of places locally to hire an amazing frock. Hire your dress. Hire your jewellery!
Accessories are a must have to complete any outfit. The races see accessories like head crowns, fascinators, clutches, and eye catching jewellery. Big statement earrings continue to feature this heavily in Spring. (Pic of Lauren in “Racing” outfit)
A dainty yet sophisticated necklace will give that finishing touch your outfit needs, one of our classic pendants will be sure to do the trick.
Sunglasses are important for the warmer days and cross body bag will also be handy to keep a hand free for some champagne!
Oaks Day dress code: Also known as Ladies’s day, it’s the perfect excuse to play up with your feminine side with pretty pastes, floras and lace. However there is no official dress code for Oaks Day!
Stakes Day dress code: Stakes Day has turned into a family friendly event so this allows guest to go for more casual vibe. (Ditch those heels!)
Derby Day dress code: Derby Day instructs guests with a strictly black and white dress code. Make sure to play with prints and separates instead of just sticking to just black, be creative!
Caulfield Cup dress code: Again this is no official dress code for this day. Guests normally go for the more classic and refined styles to embrace the more sophisticated tone.
Melbourne Cup dress code: This is one of the biggest events in the racing calendar, meaning you should go all out! Bold colours, shapes and styles—power suits, lines, and stamen through your accessories
We look forward to seeing you in your spring racing attire throughout the season. Don’t forget to tag #SpringCarnival and #Jirejewellery in your instagram pics!
