The weather down-under has begun to turn and with warmer weekends pulling us out of winter hibernation, it usually means that Spring racing has begun. The Australian Turf Club’s Everest Carnival has kicked off the season, and with top-tier racing, hospitality and entertainment, it stands to reason that your look should match.

Luxury fashion house and Everest Carnival partner, Harrolds is sharing its Spring Racing style advice for winning looks – and its not what you’d think.

“Our sophisticated and ‘anything but ordinary’ approach is represented through multiple Australian exclusives,” says Womenswear Buyer Roshali Kaul. “From the elegance of Erdem and Attico, to the boldness and beauty of Diane Von Furstenburg, Alexander McQueen and Emilio Pucci – ensuring your race day look empowers you to stand out from the crowd”.

Take inspiration from the Everest Carnival Silks Collection by Manning Cartell, which reimagines the jockey uniform. Bring fashion from the field and incorporate bold style into your race-day kit.

More is more

Ditch your go-to suit for something more bold. Opt for bright colours, prints, patterns and textures, and wear it with confidence for a stand-out look. If you’re feeling adventurous, mix and match for a unique style.

Embrace the ’90s

It is no secret that the runways are looking back to the ’90s for style inspiration and with the likes of pastels and soft hues making its way back into our kits, the time is now to revive the look. An easy way to incorporate colour into your look, pastels are fail-safe to make a statement this racing season.
