As the Melbourne Cup quickly creeps upon us all, it’s time for all those last-minute people to get organised and get an outfit for the big day.
Before buying anything, all ladies must remember that bold and bright are in.
Think pinks, purples, orange and aqua however there are still some fashionistas sporting last year’s colours of apricot and lime.
Due to the early heat this year, ladies should stick to frocks rather than a suit combo and incorporate patterns and florals into the design.
Although some women will be brave enough to wear shoulder pads, the majority of racing spectators will be seen with pleated dresses and rouched fabrics.
One shoulder dresses are making a comeback this year and can be accessorised with large pieces of jewellery such as cuffs and floral rings and bags.
Keep the headwear delicate this year or wear a headband with some bling and an oversized silk rose.
