Saturday, 12 October is the start of the Ascot Racing Carnival and the onset of spring racing fashion at the Crown Perth Opening Day.

This is a day of high fashion with a highlight of the day being the Myer Fashions on the Field competition. This year you will have the chance to be the lucky winner of a 10-day trip of a lifetime representing Western Australia as part of the 2019 Melbourne Cup Carnival at Flemington.

According to renowned stylist Juvelle Behrendorff, the hottest trends for this year’s Ascot Racing Carnival include:

  • Feminine styling with shades of blush and pearl, as well as, lace textures.
  • Edgy elegance with metallic, sequins and darker florals.
  • Street-style inspired fashion with satin coordinated sets and streamlined suiting.
  • Headpieces are popular this year, think headbands, hair clips and crowns

Golden Rules of Dressing For The Races

A day at the races is a great combination of exciting racing action, good food and beverages, and stylish fashion. It is a good opportunity to enjoy a bit of glamour and dress to impress. If you are going to the Members areas, remember that a dress code applies.

Tips for the ladies

  • Leave the stilettos at home. As much of the racecourse is grass, go for block heels, wedges or flats.
  • Choose silhouettes that are simple with sleek lines.
  • Don’t be afraid to wear colour and textures. Why not try florals, pastels, lace or bight hues?
  • If in doubt, keep it simple.

Tips for the gents

  • Polish your dress shoes.
  • Don’t forget about your accessories, like a watch, rings, floral pins and sunglasses.
  • A tie or a bow tie is a must.
  • Don’t match your pocket square to your tie. Go for complimentary designs or colours; or if you’re brave go for a contrast!
