The highly anticipated Melbourne Cup 2018 event is just around the corner and with so many fashion styles to choose from, we have scoured the Internet and have gathered all the current 2018 trends so that you can look your best for this season’s hottest spring racing event!
1. SIMPLICITY IS KEY
Coco Chanel couldn’t have put it better: “Fashions Fade, but style is eternal”. This season is all about keeping it simple with your choice of attire. We suggest you opt for designs that offer a fresh and tailored look to your spring racing wardrobe. Whether you decide to go for a short or long dress, be sure to opt for a design that has an elegant cut.
2. POPS OF COLOUR
Remember it’s spring; so don’t be afraid to add a little pop of colour to your race day attire. Soft floral prints or bright pops of colour throughout your outfit is just what you need to make that perfect race day statement for the spring season. Alternatively, choosing a bright lipstick colour such as a red or pink is another great way to incorporate the spring look.
3. NATURAL MAKEUP
You don’t want to overdo it with your look, this is an all day event and you are going to be taking a lot of photos. A neutral palette around the eyes and cheeks and a statement lip is that subtle look your outfit needs. Remember to always match your make up to your outfit to complete your look.
4. FASCINATING HEADWEAR
Your look isn’t complete without a fabulous headpiece that complements your outfit. Given that it is spring, keep it light; after all you will be wearing it all day. We suggest a low and simple crown-like headpiece will tie your spring look together perfectly.
5. Classic up-dos. Consider how your hair will sit with your headpiece or hat. Typically, it’s much easier to wear something that makes a statement when your hair is tied back. If you prefer wearing your hair out, pinning the front pieces back can have the same impact.
6. ACCESSORISE YOUR LOOK
Once you have pieced together your outfit, from your clothes, to your shoes and even headpiece, your choice in jewellery should coordinate perfectly as a whole. Our favourite statement is less is more. Rather than stacking all your bracelets and rings, choose a statement piece for the perfect final touch.
