It’s Oaks Day today (also known as Ladies’ Day) at Flemington, and you already know what we’re here for—the fashion highlights. As spring racing comes to a close, it’s hard to pick a day that’s been our overall favourite—we love them all for different reasons. Stakes Day was all about the headpiece, Derby Day reignited our love for a classic black dress, and Melbourne Cup showed us how to really stand out in bright colours. What can we learn from today? Every girl needs a pretty, feminine frock in her wardrobe—perfect to pull out for a summer wedding or date night.
Jennifer Hawkins (who’s our pick for best-dressed throughout the whole racing carnival) styled her pastel blue lace Talulah gown slightly off one shoulder, making a classic style dress feel elevated and very 2016. Rachael Finch dressed her baby bump in a mini lace dress by Self-Portrait, and Tessa James proved that Dion Lee is the master at creating structured dresses.
