Spring Races. Melbourne Cup Outfits.


It’s that fabulous time of spring races and the Melbourne cup is here! One of the most exciting events for Australians. Every lady must have a nice hat and a dress in her wardrobe here. On the Melbourne Cup day, the city is changing and women look like beautiful fairies. Almost everyone is wearing a hat or some hair accessories and dress up. If you are still unsure what to wear for a Melbourne cup day or just want to find the inspiration – here are some ideas for you.

This is the occasion when you have to look like a real lady and you must have a dress, heels or elegant shoes and, of course, a hat. I would describe the outfit style as an elegant, but funky – with some touch of a creativity. I personally do not like so much the idea of wearing middle-eastern-inspired-style chains in the hairs, or turbans, or, one of the hipster hats, but it is still an option if you do not have anything else.

To me personally, it looks like you came to a wrong party. I think various feminine hats or hairbands with flowers look much better and more suitable for this event. Initially, it is a royal event, so the idea is to try to match the Royals with some of your own ideas, of course.

Usually, it is very hot on this day and you might need to stay dressed up on the hot and burning sun.  So think of wearing natural and like fabrics, such as cotton, silk and so on (no polyester).

Some ladies may assume, any head accessorize can be good, does not matter what it is. However, any kinds of turban, flower crowns, fedora hats and chain headbands are not really suitable for the races.  Probably there are some rare exceptions. In general  – it is a NO. NO
