Styling a Classic Look for Spring Racing

Throughout the spring racing period, I get so many emails asking for advice on how to select a headpiece for a particular outfit. So, in this Spring Styling series, I'll be delving into some beautiful Australian designed outfits, and explaining how I would go about styling them.


Today I'm working with the gorgeous 'Rhiannon' dress in colour 'sorbet' by Significant Other.

I'm a big fan of a sleeve for spring racing - especially if you're attending the Melbourne Cup Carnival, where the weather is notoriously unpredictable! This beautiful subtle pink also feels like the perfect springtime shade.


When working with a block colour outfit like this one, there's plenty of room for creative flair when selecting your headpiece!



PICK ONE - 'PARBURY' IN LILAC


This dress definitely gives me an Oaks Day feel, so my first suggestion is 'Parbury' in lilac. The varying shades of purple offer a slight contrast to the dress, with pink tones also present to complement. As an added bonus, I love how the smooth sheen of the pink petals picks up on the texture of the dress fabric.


PICK TWO - 'DANEDREAM'
