Melbourne Cup 2017 is almost here and it’s like the day before Christmas with everyone racing to get last minute outfits in order. If you’ll be attending both Derby Day and Melbourne Cup, two outfits are most definitely required, but what are the rules?
Here’s a quick run down on the ‘dress code’ for each event.
Derby Day 2017 Dress code
Derby Day calls for a sophisticated monochrome outfit. This can be a little bit restricting when it comes to finding the perfect dress, but you can opt for a tailored jumpsuit as an alternative.
If you’d like a dress option you can’t go past the Gabrielle Spot Mini Dress by Rebecca Vallance. No words are needed for this divine dress.
The Avenger Jumpsuit by Viktoria and Woods is also a beautiful light option if you’re opposed to wearing black.
Team with the Ace of Something Maya Woven Fedora and a Olivia Burton Watch for a tres chic touch.
Melbourne Cup 2017 Dress code
It’s the race that stops the nation so it’s fitting to want to find an outfit that turns heads! Melbourne Cup 2017 dress code is all about a pop of colour.
If you want to literally stand out from the crowd the Capri Mini Dress by Rebecca Vallance is a winner. A beautiful off the shoulder dress with a frill hemline that finishing just above the knee. Made from a figure hugging stretch knit and available in a bright blood orange.
The Rebecca Vallance Baha Strapless Midi Dress in bright saffron is also an elegant choice for Melbourne Cup 2017. With a one shoulder design and waterfall effect ruffle, compliment this dress with gold jewellery and you’re set.
