What To Wear: Spring Racing Carnival Trends

By  | 

The most fashion forward event of the year is finally here. It’s time to plan your pieces so that your outfit is on point.

I’ve put together the ultimate guide on what to wear on the field.  Its all about floral prints, lace and feminine colours this season.


Pastels are my go to colour for Spring.  It is a practical colour that you can wear to many spring/summer events.

I love this fitted midi dress by Bec and Bridge

and this classic Flare Hem Knit Dress from Witchery


This is a bargain at the moment from Sheike



Black & White

I love black and white and have a tendency to opt for these colours most of the time. These picks are timeless and elegant and would be perfect for Derby Day.

Bianca and Bridget have this stunning number (also available in White)


This White Polka Dot Fishtail Midaxi Dress by Pretty Little Thing makes a statement and is only $70


This is a gorgeous one shoulder neckline and asymmetrical hem dress by Fashion Bunker

and of course, this feminine, silhouette dress by Mossman 

Dare to be Bold

If you’re a lover of bold colours then these are the dresses for you. They are fresh, fun and flirty and will definitely stand out in a crowd.

The Hamptons Bow Dress in lemon yellow is a perfect event dress

Florals & Lace

A floral or lace print is absolutely perfect for the races this season.

The Unbridled Elixir Short Dress, in Spliced Floral prints by Zimmermann is also a great choice


and this cute, laced, tiered mini dress from Shopbop



Accessories! I love this element of the Spring Racing Carnival. It’s the fun part of piecing your outfit together. Choose a fascinator and clutch that is in the same colour tones as your dress so everything flows together.
