Derby Day Style Guide
The first day of the Melbourne Cup Carnival sees the crowd come out in their black and white best. Derby Day, known as the day for racing purists, traditionally sees a monochromatic dress code, encouraging race goers to keep it simple and chic in either black or white or a combination of both. If the simple colour palette leaves you wanting more from your look, try experimenting with textures and fabrics to bring something special to your outfit.
Who doesn't love the chance to dress up, have some French champagne with friends and maybe win a bet?
Here is your style guide for the 3 day event.. Giddy up!

Emirates Stakes Day Saturday 8th November 2014
Dress code: While the day is more relaxed, (family day) it doesn’t mean you shouldn't go in your best dressed. Think classy floral day dresses, fabulous clutches and chic heels.
Always remember individuality and style is key. Be creative, be inventive, be authentic and exude elegance.
