Spring Racing: Derby Day Edit

With Spring Racing season fast approaching, it’s time to start planning those outfits! As always, we’ll be bringing you our fashion and millinery edits for the main race days over the next few weeks, kicking off with the oh so chic Derby Day!

Derby Day is all about classic and elegant dressing, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make a statement! This season, one of the most popular trends trackside will be the 80’s! We’re talking exaggerated silhouettes (hello puffed sleeves!), belted jumpsuits and dresses and padded head bands, to name a few. Expect to see plenty of tailored pant suits and jumpsuits too, always a chic option! To get the lowdown on all things millinery this Derby Day, we caught up with Adelaide milliner Sylvy Earl to get her thoughts on what’ll be trending trackside!

Sylvy: With the black and white dress code already taken care of, Derby Day is the perfect chance to play with shape and texture, and celebrate the little details that can make your outfit special. Depending on your direction, you can keep your headwear understated with a sleek headband or bow, or make a statement with a sculptural headpiece or beautiful brimmed hat. Some chic Derby Day details to look out for include sleek and sculptural mesh headpieces, wide brimmed straw hats, flowing ribbons and bows and metallics with pearl accents that provide just enough sparkle.

If you haven’t even thought about what you’ll be wearing come race day – don’t fret! We’ve got loads of Derby Day inspo below to help kick start your search! Oh, and be sure to stop by next week for our Melbourne Cup day edit!
