What to wear on Melbourne cup

Dear pretty Fillies and handsome Fellas,


Kristen here, your Thoroughbred Park Ambassador and spring racing fanatic!

As we head into Melbourne Cup.. I can’t wait to see you at the track AND I have some hot tips on what to wear.


I will be judging Fashions on the Field and this is what we’ll be looking for..

Your head has never been so important. A hat, fascinator or headpiece, make sure you have one and make it pop. We were looking for an original, statement piece. Local milliner Christine Waring is my go-to.

The devil is in the detail. Race days are all about tradition, tradition that should be honoured. Check the rules, follow them but feel free to put your own unique twist on it. Your style needs to flow from head to toe, so think accessories, shoes, bags and gloves as together they make a huge statement.

Mix it up. It’s spring so ditch the heavier fabrics like felts or leather and opt for straw and prints. Experiment with mixing different prints and patterns as long as they all complement each other. Be bold, you have to stand out.

Pretty in pastel. Pastels are on trend; light pink, purple and blue. Also flower crowns and headbands are uber cool too, so feel free to be bold.


Giddy up.. have fun and see you out there!

Love Kristen x
