Melbourne Cup in 2021 is looking a bit different for the location you’ll be at but race day fashion has always drawn just as much attention than the race itself. Whether you’re off to a work luncheon, bottomless brunch with the girls or just to your local pub with friends, we have you covered.
Melbourne Cup is well-known for its exciting and vibrant spectrum of colour used throughout fashion accessories and we have used this as inspiration for 3 inspirational looks for you this year.
We love this year’s trend of bright colours anchored with a neutral. Think versatile and easily wear-again dresses contrasted with (mandatory) elegant hats or fascinators providing an elegant and calm look for a relaxed atmosphere.
We’ve curated 3 different looks for your distinctive and exciting race day:
The Aerin in Ivory is a perfect Race Day workplace luncheon dress, made with 3% elastane you will look good and the outfit is a fun and fanciful play on colours but also conservative for a workplace setting. We paired the Aerin Ivory as it is easily paired with any colour and we’ve chosen a pop of trendy green to add a subtle elegant excitement to tie your outfit together. This dress is a versatile piece to purchase as it can be easily be worn again after this event.
One of our most popular dresses, the Chance dress in Navy is accessorized with a fun burst of orange. Pairing Navy and orange is a perfect match as these colours are complementary/opposites on the colour wheel, they really bounce off each other whilst presenting a fun play on the vibrant colours of day.

You can’t go wrong with a little black dress; the Lucia in Black is perfect for your race day fashion with friends. Featuring a draped back cape with V-back detail, this dress is flattering for all. Pair this dress with a bright blue accessory that we think you’ll see everywhere this race season.
