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!


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.
