What to Wear to Oaks Day

If you are heading to the track this Oaks day, here’s some hints and fashion inspiration for choosing the perfect outfit.

The Crown Oaks is the third day of the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival and is considered the most glamorous due to the beautiful fashion.  Held on the Thursday following Melbourne Cup Day it is known as Ladies Day and features the final of the Myer Fashions on the Field Women’s Racewear.

This is the day ladies traditionally wear their most stylish and romantic outfits.  Choose a dress in a feminine colour or a floral print.  Try a pastel in blue, pink, green or yellow and compliment it with a beautiful hat and accessories in different shades.  If you want to make a more modern statement choose statement accessories to add uniqueness, while still keeping your look modest and sophisticated.
