Spring is here, which means we are on the countdown to one of our favourite events… The Spring Racing Carnival! We here at Stella love any excuse to dress up and whilst this year we probably won’t be trackside, we’ll still take it!! So pop on your fascinator or your fancy hat and call your friends… we’ll help you plan the perfect picnic.

Country Chic.

Think Oaks Day (ladies’ day), with its feminine dress code. Frock up in the Ella Dot Dress, which features a timeless spot print in new season earthy tones and a flattering silhouette. The flowing midi length also makes it perfect for relaxing on a picnic blanket. If separates are more your style, the Earth Blooms Top and Skirt are also a feminine choice… as well as a more casual option (no strict dress codes here!). Featuring a tonal paisley print, this top and skirt combo is made for wearing together – or each piece alone! Add some low heels and a wicker hat.

Style your picnic with earthy and dusty toned table cloths, napkins and flowers. Create or order grazing boards with all your favourites. And don’t forget the champagne!

Pretty in Print.

Spring Racing is all about having fun with fashion, so stand out in bold prints or soft abstracts. The Calypso Midi Dress features a bold tropical inspired print, in a flattering and easy to wear silhouette. It can easily be dressed up or down with heels or slides. Or the Bellflower Dress (coming soon!) is a soft, feminine choice with it’s abstract print and short, frilly hem. Add some neutral block heels and a simple claw clip to complete the look.

Style your picnic to match your outfit with different shades of red and pink. Bring in a hint of the racecourse with beautiful roses as centre pieces.
