Style; an abused, but still beautiful term. Once a word which represented individualism, now gets thrown around like an old pair of socks.
If there’s ever a time to showcase the true meaning of style in Australia, it’s Melbourne Cup day! Don’t lose your individualism, but do
follow etiquette. Here’s our 5-point guide to getting it spot on, this Melbourne Cup day.
Spring/summer is a time for vibrant colours, light fabric suits and straw hats. Fabrics like linen and cotton will prevent you from perspiring, and prevent you from looking like you just went for a 12km run.
–Would you wear white shorts on a cold, rainy winter day? Didn’t think so. Stick to colours and fabrics that compliment your surroundings/season.
Simply because, you’ll take off your jacket… and a shirt with trousers just doesn’t cut it. Have fun with your selection of vest and tie, ensure it compliments your whole outfit.
This goes out to the gents, that only have blue or black in their wardrobe. There’s no need to freak out over a touch of colour, and don’t worry… people have better things to do than talk about how you’re wearing a pink shirt on Melbourne Cup day.
Nothing says spring/summer like a pair of great loafers! Be sure to choose a colour that compliments what you’re wearing, and stick to leather. Remember, You’re still wearing a suit, so choose a loafer that fits the stylish occasion.
