Derby Day Inspiration

Derby Day Inspiration

Derby Day kick starts the Melbourne Cup carnival this Saturday the 29th of October and it is traditional for the ladies to wear a black and white outfit. Derby Day is the perfect example of classic elegance. When choosing an outfit for Derby Day consider all over white, all over black or monochrome. Make sure your outfit has texture, a stylish silhouette or some sort of gorgeous detailing if you want to make a statement.

If you are wearing all over white consider adding a black shoe, bag and head piece. If you are wearing all over black try adding a white bag.

I have chosen to keep my outfit simple and elegant. I am wearing my favourite little black dress that I purchased many seasons ago. It is Dolce and Gabbana and the style is classic and elegant. My shoes are  Gianvito Rossi Versilia Suede block heel so I will be comfortable on the grass, my fascinator is from a local milliner many seasons ago and I have added a white Edie Parker box clutch to create interest within the theme.

It is important when attending race days to dress in an outfit that you feel amazing in as well as being comfortable because they are long days, quite often a lot of standing involved.  If you stick with this rule you will really enjoy the day.
