Giddy up ladies! Last-minute Spring Racing Looks For Less
Don’t get saddled with debt this racing season – we’ve got fashions for the field from just $15! Or, it’s not to late to rent a designer look!
From Derby Day to Stakes Day, if you’re heading to the track or a racing function, Hussh is here to help you spend less on your look.
Keep it classic for Derby Day with a crisp white or strong black dress.
The frocks at this week’s Cup Weekend Fashion Sale will have you lengths ahead of the field when it comes to the monochrome dress code! And all dresses are just $15, in all sizes from 8 – 24!
These fitted bodice designs below have flattering sweetheart neckline and a pretty lace overlay. If you prefer to go for two pieces, this sheer ruffled top (just $10 down from over $100!) is a showstopper!
Team it with tailored trousers for an ultra-glam look. Slip a cami underneath for a bit more coverage.
Ladies in lace
Romantic and ultra-feminine, lace is a winning fabric for race day outfits. Show off your décolletage with a shoulder showing knee-length number.
Long sleeves and a knee-length skirt keep it classy.
(All dresses just $15)
Want to cover-up your legs? How about combing a maxi-skirt with a sheer lace top? This soft lilac look is very on trend for spring and the full-length skirt balances out the look while oozing Angelina Jolie glam.
The white drop-waist style flapper dress is great is you’re short. The waistline lengthens the body and the higher neckline flatters a smaller bust.
(Rachel Finch opted for a green dress with a floral print last season)
Show off your girlie side at Oaks Day with pretty florals. Soft dove grey and navy fabrics are great alternatives to white and black.
(All dresses just $15 at this week’s Cup Weekend Fashion Sale)
Choose an elbow length sleeve if you’re conscious about your upper arms while a higher neckline elongates the torso.
A short, printed shift dress is smart and easy to wear. Look for one with interesting elements, like this one’s black trim, which draws the eye and adds shape to the silhouette.
Melbourne Cup is the time for your colours to shine! Bright reds, blues and pinks all make a statement while being fun. There’s styles to suit all shapes, including sleeves for upper arms and bright patterns which divert the eye to your best assets.
While the bold blue dress might be on the short side for some, it can also be dressed down for casual events by pairing with some plain tights and flats.
Rent it! Elliatt Theatre Dress, sizes 8 – 14, $59.
Putting on the glitz
Love a bit of bling? We’ve got sequins for days! This long-sleeved gold glitzy number is insta-worthy, perfect for showing off your legs and only $15!
If subtle glam is more your style, look for bursts of glitter rather than all-over sparkle. A sash is perfect for cinching your waist and this black dress can also be worn on or off the shoulders – two looks for the price of one! Winning!
A modern twist on race day fashion, the playsuit is a fun and great for something different for Stakes Day. Jen Hawkins recently rocked a full-length version to the races and looked fab. Go for a block colour and look for interesting details like lace panels, sashes or bodice necklines.
Emma Freedman rocks a white dress with statement lace sleeves – nailing three trends in one for a recent magazine shoot!
Let your arms make a fashion statement with powerful sleeves! They add a modern twist to any look and mean you can keep accessories to a minimum if you choose.
All in the details
All these looks can easily be styled up after racing season for wedding parties, engagement dos, lunch with the girls… Just remember to steer clear of white for weddings – that’s reserved for the bride!
