A TOUCH OF FRENCH FLAIR, THE SPRING RACING EDITION

As the weather warms Melbourne readies with anticipation for the Spring Racing Carnival.  Ahhh, but what to wear?!  

In a time of logo-embellished finery we're instead looking back to the simple elegance and 'très chic' dressing codes from the days of the Longchamp race track, Paris' premiere racing event.  Fashion-forward at the time, the new codes embraced by the race-goers still apply today, cut in perfect silhouettes by Victoria Beckham, Petar Petrov and Proenza Schouler for example.  Read on to discover our favourite looks, whether you'll be trackside or not.


Women started to wear 
Pant Suits earlier than you think. Women caused quite the stir in 1908 at “Les Nouvelles Meirveilleuses” in tailored outfits which would probably make today's Race Day best dressed.  

THE PANT SUIT



An accentuated waistline creates that feminine silhouette which has been a staple look in racing fashion for years. 

THE ACCENTUATED WAISTLINE 

Whether sipping champagne or track side, pleated skirts add another level of dimension and style to any race day outfit.
