Fashions Inspired by the Field

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:

Corporate Luncheon

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.

Bottomless Brunch

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.  



Drinks at the Local

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.
