Crack the Derby Day Dress Code and Dress To Impress
Got your tickets to Derby Day? Then it’s time to plan your outfit for one of the best events of the Spring Racing Carnival season.
Dress codes can be a bit tricky. Some of them can be pretty vague too. But Spring Racing dress codes are a whole ‘nother story.
Derby Day 2023 dress code
Derby Day 2023, slated for 4 November, is undoubtedly a showcase of elegance.
What exactly is the Derby Day dress code? Monochrome, baby. Black and white are the prescribed colours for the day.
While they won’t kick you out if you wear pink or red, we think it doesn’t hurt to stick to tradition. And besides, it’s one of the very few times a year that you get to be asked to get creative with a limited colour palette. That’s a fun challenge, don’t you think?
Here are three tips to help you ace the Derby Day dress code.
Have fun with the black and white palette
Trust us, black and white aren’t boring at all! When choosing a dress or pantsuit, consider those with an interesting cut or a fun texture. Go all out in either colour or a mixture of both in your ensemble. But here's a hot tip: You can get away with wearing cream too!
Leave ‘casual’ out the door
You know the drill: Remember that glam is the name of the game.
Accessorise, accessorise, accessorise
Whether you’re feeling a white headband or a black headband, a white fascinator or a black fascinator, or a white wide-brim hat or a black wide-brim hat, make sure it's one you love and go all out.
Here are some special occasion headwear to pair with your Derby Day outfit.
