Spring Racing Carnival Trends - What's Hot For Mebourne Cup

Melbournes' Spring racing carnival is hitting fever pitch. There are still a number of race days ahead and of course the big one, Melbourne Cup Day. If you haven't put an outfit together yet let's look at what's trending on the green carpet for the race fashionista.

Myer fashion on the fields state finalists stepped out in what's hot right now. 

The 3 P's are a must if you want to be on trend for the season. Peplums are all the rage and super flattering & feminine. From L - R we have a pretty peplum  in the perfect length for the races at just $85. For the modern woman who wants to take herself from the race fields to the after party look for bold patterns like this lace overlay dress that features a peplum as well for a tiny $85. Keep it sweet and romantic in perfect pastels for Spring at $136.


If you already have something in your wardrobe or don't feel bold enough to dress head to toe in these strong trends add amazing accessories like these Fluro heels from Windsor Smith $99.95. They also come in fluro yellow! A great bag is a must and this Olga Berg clutch fits the bill perfectly at $80.  Add a flourish of floral with this Ted Baker clutch at $66.


If you're still unsure about what's trending think COLOR! Add some color to your look with pretty jewelry pieces that won't cost the earth but will make a statement. In colors of the rainbow from L-R we have this vintage globe necklace a steal at $25. Add your pop of pastel without committing completely to the trend with this handmade necklace $49. Get noticed in this multicolor statement necklace $79.

And ladies, don't forget your hat!! Good luck at the races....
