How to Take Your Look From Day to Night
When the race is over, the celebrations and fun have only begun...
Keep these style tips in mind to keep you looking and feeling chic for the evening's festivities.
Carry a bag that is just big enough for all your essentials. Small clutch bags are strictly for after 5 only, whilst large totes are reserved for work or shopping. Head to Saba, Alannah Hill, Mimco and Tony Bianco for the best range that is chic enough for race day, but big enough to stock anything you need to freshen up with for the evening.
Add some bling
Minimal fuss-free clothing is the perfect backdrop for precious pieces. Introduce pearls or a touch of bling to add pops of colour to your look.
Do not take your shoes off. Pack some bandaids or wear a lower heel. Wittner has a good selection of pretty flats and mid-heels begging for a day at the races.
Remove your headwear
Finally, the key thing to remember when taking your look from day to night is to remove your head piece. That's why a chignon or ponytail works best as a hairstyle for Melbourne Cup - chic by day, and sexy and sleek come night.
