The Melbourne Cup seems to creep up on me every year. It probably has something to do with my travel schedule being at its busiest in October/November but thankfully being back in Australia there is an online solution to my unorganised wardrobe. The Iconic Spring Racing collection is full of beautiful pieces that will make it to your door with plenty of time to prep ahead of next Tuesday. I’ve put together a selection of my favourite pieces that cover every price range, with accessories to pull together your current wardrobe staples. Head this way for last minute saviours…
THE ICONIC SPRING RACING FASHION
Four of my favourite Atmos & Here dresses that are all under $80! Click to shop:
This look is inspired by my love of culottes and the fact that you will rarely find me in a dress. The blush tone of these TY-LR culottes makes them less severe than a pant-suit and works beautifully with Spring colours. Pair with a tucked in top to make sure your midriff doesn’t get refused entry and opt for skinnier heels to balance out the wide silhouette.
MIX N MATCH
The selections below are my favourite accessories that will seamlessly work with your current wardrobe. Whether you have a LBD/LWD to style or have a a statement piece that you want to pair back, these selections won’t clash. I’ve included this Talulah dress because its beautiful simplicity is the kind of thing I’d love to slip on when I ditch the denim. The flared shape is also perfectly light for hot days by the track (fingers crossed for good weather this year).
SHOP 1. Talulah Dress, 2. Mania Mania Jupiter Necklace, 3. Mania Mania Neptune Necklace, 4. Grace + Scarper Ring, 5. Windsor Smith Heels, 6. Spurr heels, 7. Aldo Cunnick Bag, 8. BCBGeneration Lana bag, 9. Studio Aniss Nikita Crown, 10. Fallen Broken Street Hat, 11. Morgan & Taylor Lace Ears.
No Spring Racing Carnival is complete without at least one day when you embrace all things feminine. I love the florals in this Cooper St dress because they are more graphic than traditional floral prints and give you a broad colour palette to work with. Here navy makes a beautiful alternative to black, with a headpiece that won’t date.
Do you have a favourite piece from The Iconic Spring Racing collection? There are a few key items here that are also must-haves for the summer ahead. Strappy heels, a white handbag and simple fine jewellery will stand the test of time throughout the hotter months (not that you need another excuse to buy them)!
Have fun getting ready on Tuesday and I hope you pick a winner,
