Races are rolling on and as we eye Flemington, where I start my 2016 races party we need to lock down our trends and styles for arguably the most important factor of your outfit. I stick to traditional race rules in that I abide by the color dress codes for each day, that you should be styling the most polished look you can and make an extra effort with the finishing touches on hair,makeup and accessories. With this I am about always having headwear of some sort on your head. It’s the races, embrace the chance to dress up and play with accessories you may not often do so outside of the carnival.

Top trends I think we will be seeing would be ‘The Boater’ which is a simplified option of a wider brim hat that looks amazing but tends to be hard to navigate on the way to the bar and dance floor and as all good Melbourne girls know if the weather gets wild and windy you are a chance to keep this chic little number on your head.

Pins and clips. As a regular net across the face wearer the addition of these beautiful clips finish the look and make you race ready. If your outfit is quite detailed and making her own statement sometimes all you need is a simple piece to avoid looking over styled. Flourish Pins 

Turban and head scarves. A modern take on headwear and I say if you can make it look chic and elegant then go for it! Be careful not to be too boho and relaxed with a strong makeup look and the hair must be polished and styled. Knot Shy Headband
