Keep some style in your home wardrobe


You don't have to be living in Melbourne to make the most of the Spring Racing Carnival season. Even if you happen to be living in Sydney, or anywhere else in the country, it is essential (and less stressful) if you have a few of these key items in your wardrobe to prepare you for a great day out at the races. That way you'll feel fantastic while sipping on some sparkles indeed.

1. Fascinator

If fascinators do not resonate with you, you can opt for alternative headwear to the likes of a hat, a headband, and/or a hair clip or two. Have such items in your home wardrobe that align beautifully with a bun. For some affordable fancy hair clips and headbands, Mimco (owned by Witchery) is a great go to place for such race day items for the home. Otherwise, buying such head pieces (more so fascinators) are easily sought at department stores such as David Jones and Myer.

2. Dresses

Pretty dresses at retailers such as Review are quite affordable, and they're fantastic to wear during the races, and just when Spring has finally sprung in general. Bear in mind that different racing events depict a different dress code. Melbourne Cup is all about your bright and pinky colours, as well as patterned dresses. Derby Day is a black and white dress day, while Oaks Day is all about those floral dresses. Essential to have a bit of each in you home wardrobe for a cool girls day out, or time with your partner at the races.

3. Shoes

You'll be on your feet for quite a while, and therefore practicality is the aim here. Invest in a pair of suitable shoes with a thicker heel as opposed to straight high heels. A given, wear your shoes a few times (as long as you need) to wear them in, in order to avoid blisters on the big day. Remember those band aids too.

4. Other (non-wardrobe) recommended items to have in the home for such events

These are the essentials to have as back ups - apart from band aids:

Bobby pins
Camera
Water bottle
Perfume
Other jewellery pieces such as rings
Make up to the likes of lipstick, and
Sunglasses. Prada all the way, or some other fashionable brand to compliment your wardrobe outfits.
