Carena West: Deciphering the dress code for OMF Melbourne Cup Day

Sorting your outfit for a raceday should be fun, not daunting. But, if you're feeling a little more daunted than you are excited, don't fret! We've enlisted the help of our fashion ambassador, Carena West, to give her tips on what to expect and where to start for Tuesday's OMF Melbourne Cup Day here at Ellerslie.

Carena Says...

The Melbourne Cup is called a carnival day, but that doesn't mean you should dress like a clown and arrive with your face painted!

The day is a celebration of the end of winter and is often met with outfits that are bright, bold and daring.

Ladies - OMF Melbourne Cup Day at Ellerslie is the perfect opportunity to try a fashion forward outfit, and experiment with new colour combinations or print mixing.

Gents - Mix up that suit wardrobe by pairing unlikely shirt and tie combinations, or take a leaf from the ladies' book and experiment with clashing prints.

Check out a few ideas below....
