Victoria Derby Day Fashion Sets Cup Trends

The style for this year’s Flemington Racing Carnival will be showcased this Saturday with the main themes of the season being sophistication and class.

Bringing back the cinched waists and broad shoulders of the 1980s, Victoria Derby Day will flaunt plenty of dresses coming in right at the waist and then going back out at the shoulder for a more corporate look.

The style, set by fashions-on-the-field ambassadors Pia and Brad Miller, will also incorporate bold, contrasting colours such as black and white rather than the soft and feminine look which will be seen later on in the carnival.

For men, sharp suits, wide ties and Cuban hats are all in this season and forget matching your outfit to your partner, this season it’s all about complimenting.

Expect to see lots of strong bright colours at the Melbourne Cup while the soft flowing fabrics with pretty pastel colours will be reserved for the Crown Oaks day.

The last day of the carnival is the Emirates Stakes day and this is the time for fashion forward race-goers to have fun with flowing fabrics.
