You deserve more than blending in with the Cup Day crowd

You don’t always get the chance to push the limits with your look, which is why we love the Melbourne Cup. Sure, it’s the race that stops the nation, but it’s also your chance to embrace your inner style icon. Forget everything you thought you knew about what you like to wear, the Cup is your opportunity for a complete sartorial reinvention.

Be whoever you want to be, dress however you want to dress, and do it with abandon.

This year, Cup Day is all about bold and bright ensembles – think colour, print and timeless, textured lace.

Wearing lace to the races works pretty much every time. No matter what the colour or shape, it immediately puts you in the mood for sipping champagne, mingling on the lawns, and placing your race day bets. This season we’ve fallen hard for Red Valentino’s breathtaking black lace maxi – did someone say divine? Keep reading to shop a few of our other favourite pieces…

Opt for an architectural aesthetic on Cup Day by wearing a striking silhouette. Classic pencil cuts and playful A-line styles are joined this season by a variety of diverse styles, from one-shoulder to trapeze, asymmetric to empire, and pretty much every other shape you can imagine in between.
