Personally, I love a themed race day. Although the dress code can pose a challenge by narrowing down your choices, the element of restriction can really get the creative juices flowing.
It’s fun having to find new ways to incorporate colours or shapes into an outfit and you just have to take a look around to realise that a dress code does not mean everyone will arrive wearing the same thing. Far from it!
Take Stradbroke Cup for example, the theme was black and white with a touch of red. Not one fashionable lady looked alike.
Let’s take a look at some popular race day themes and how women have incorporated it into their outfits.
The Ever Popular Black and White (e.g. Derby Day)
Derby Day in Melbourne is such a fantastic day for people watching. The diverse and creative ways in which women interpret the theme of black and white, showing up in such beautiful ensembles is a joy to see.
