Spring Racing: Melbourne Cup Edit

After some Melbourne Cup Day inspo? We’ve got you covered! Cup Day is all about having fun with your outfit, think bold, bright colours and statement silhouettes and headpieces!

For a fashion forward look, make tonal dressing your go-to! Go head to toe in the same hue or wear multiple shades of the same colour at once. It’s the perfect way to look effortless yet polished all at the same time! Did we mention Victoria Beckham is a fan of tonal dressing? Need we say more!

When it comes to finding the perfect headpiece, Melbourne based milliner Lisa Leverington of Lady of Leisure Millinery was kind enough to share her Cup Day insights!

“Melbourne Cup is the race that stops the nation, and if you’re going to any celebrations around Australia, you must go all out! It is a great day to let your personality shine through your fashion decisions, wear something that makes you smile with confidence. This season I am feeling a little bit ‘extra’ incorporating lots of sparkles in the form of sequins and metallic textures in the Lady of Leisure Millinery collection, and making use of ALL the colours of the RAINBOW on our crystal JYJewels collaboration. These pieces make me happy just looking at them and even more so when I see them light up client’s faces as they try them on. So I think that feeling of joy should be sparked in whatever you choose to wear! Forget the rules and trends and start getting creative with your styling or contact your local milliner for advice!”

Without further ado, keep scrolling for our Melbourne Cup Day edit folks! Giddy-up!
