Spring Racing is well underway, this weekend being the Caulfield Cup. We spoke to David Jones Ambassador, Jesinta Campbell, to find out the hottest fashion trends for this season.
“I love the Spring Racing Carnival, it’s one of the few events on the social calendar where you can make a special effort to dress up and wear a hat – there’s an air of sophistication about it that I really enjoy”, says Jesinta.
“Metallics have had a revival this summer, and we’ll see a lot of shine at the races. Dresses and separates in cool silvers, rich golds, and deep bronzes will make a statement this season. Also beautiful garden florals in floaty silhouettes from Zimmermann, and khaki, military greens in structured skirts and jackets from brands like Dion Lee and Christopher Esber. For headpieces, look to Pretty Woman for inspo for wide brim hats trimmed with ribbons. Veiling is also big this season, try a small headband with a simple black net or lace piece”, explained Jesinta.
The Caulfield Cup is a great way to ease into the season, with a relaxed atmosphere, it’s the perfect the opportunity to play with your fashion and have fun with your styling. Head to the most stylish place at Caulfield, The David Jones Fashion Stable. A new style destination, featuring a run of designer runways in an elegant lounge and bar precinct.
