Go feminine and floral for Ladies Day, with tones of pink, blush, gold and maroon. A modest length dress is always a winner, as well as closed-toe shoes and a dainty clutch.
Seasoned race-goer and Fashions on the Field maven Milano Imai explains how easy it is to nail your outfit this winter racing carnival. DOS AND DON’TS Abide by the seasonal rules and wear felt, leather, wool or trans seasonal millinery. Wear closed toe shoes, and ensure you dress for the day and the weather. Don’t wear sinamay or straw, avoid thin straps or overexposed shoulders, and don’t forget to have fun! STYLING ADVICE Never underestimate what a fabulous piece of millinery can do; invest in your millinery and make sure it complements your overall look and doesn’t overpower it. Consider your accessories – they can really give your outfit an on-trend vibe.

FASHIONS ON THE FIELD Enjoy the process of planning and creating your outfit. When you get on stage, have fun and be proud of what you’ve put together. Take your time on the catwalk so the judges can see all the elements of your outfit, always remember to smile. Go with friends so you can enjoy the day, give others compliments, take a photo of your outfit (so I can repost it later) and if the judges don’t choose you, don’t let it ruin your day! FOR THE MEN Don’t wear pants that are too tight, and aim to match your colours – don’t have a brown belt and black shoes. It’s also just as important for you to consider your accessories; would a pocket square, lapel flower, tie pin, or a hat suit your outfit?
