Here at Who What Wear Australia, we're dishing out style advice every day. Wear this, try that—it's our job to keep you informed and on trend. Whilst style commandments exist for a reason—it's not to say the so-called "rules" shouldn't be challenged, pushed, and sometimes broken.
As Jean Shrimpton proved when she famously snubbed the racing style rules in 1965, taking a risk can certainly pay off—you too could pave the way for generations to come! (Too far?) From frocks to fascinators, keep scrolling to see the five fashion rules we’ll be breaking this spring racing season, then find your spirit animal at ASOS Style Punters.
Ditch the cocktail dress and opt for a flirty jumpsuit or separates. A boxy crop worn with a flouncy skirt or pair of palazzo pants is unique, fun and shows serious style game.
We’d be lying if we said we weren’t hardcore heel devotees, but this season’s lower options can be just as chic! A mid-height platform, block heel or flat might just save you on race day… Repeat after us: Removing shoes is never an option.
Felt for autumn, straw for spring? Ignore this age-old headwear rule and you’ll reap the sartorial rewards—think chic crowns and fine-jewellery inspired fascinators worn with perfectly imperfect hair. So understated, so chic.
We’re not suggesting you head to the races in your sports bra, but hear us out. A sliver of skin can be oh-so sexy when styled correctly—the key word is subtle. A flash of flesh made visible through cut-out lace or the tiniest of tummy poking through? Genius.
