It’s nearly that time of the year. With only a few weeks left to prepare for the week-long event, we are here to help you nail your next look. Whether you’re new to the Spring Carnival or a seasoned regular, we have all the style advice you need to get you looking chic and sophisticated this spring racing season.

A few helpful tips from seasoned race goers:

  1. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes. You’ll be standing and walking for most of the day so leave the stilettos at home. Instead try a more comfortable block heel or wedge. If you can’t make it through the day in your heels, pack some ballet flats for the walk home. Shoes on ladies!
  2. Head-wear is essential for the races. Whether you got for a hat or a fascinator, match it back to your shoes of dress or even play with contrasting colours. Pop into our Melbourne Boutique to see our range of fascinators. If you can’t make it to our boutique, your local Myer will have a great selection.
  3. Remember your sun (and rain!) protection. Pace your drinking, you don’t want to end up on one of those news articles do you?
