  • Grooming and deportment

Millinery Award:

  • Style and design of the millinery (originality & concept)
  • Quality of workmanship of the milliner
  • Appropriateness of the millinery for Autumn (no straw)
  • Suitability in complementing the individual’s total outfit

Racewear Do's:

  1. Express your own sense of racing style - focus on the appropriateness of the outfit for the race day and the individual
  2. Demonstrate that you understand current fashion trends including winter florals, monochrome or mixing leather with animal prints.
  3. Display attention to detail with accessories and millinery
  4. Focus on your personal presentation - superior grooming and deportment are essential
  5. Consider suitability and appropriateness of the outfit for the climate

Racewear Don’ts:

  1. Don't wear brand new shoes - ensure that shoes have been worn in, even if they have only been worn around the house
  2. Don't wear an outfit that is too revealing. Remember that the races are all about elegance and sophistication.
  3. Don't wear millinery that is so over the top that it gets in the way of other patrons - pointy and oversized millinery can take an eye out when you're standing in the queue at the tote!
  4. Don't forget to be aware of the Club's specific dress regulations – be sure to review before planning your race day outfit.
  5. Don't forget to dress appropriately for the predicted weather forecast on race day. There is no point wearing an amazing dress if you are freezing!

Myer Autumn Winter Racewear Trends

Each season the stable of Myer Australian designers such as Manning Catell, Yeojin Bae, Ellery and Toni Maticevski offer a fantastic range of designs suitable for the races. For a more affordable race day look opt for Jayson Brundson Black label or Wayne by Wayne Cooper which offer on-trend designs at accessible prices.

MONOCHROME

Black and white continues from summer as a strong trend. Whether in stripes, blocks, chevrons or florals, monochrome is your go-to look for instant chic at the races.

LADY IN RED

Add some intensity to your racewear look with sleek tailoring and luxe silhouettes in this season’s leading shade. Red offers a bold statement, and is sure to grab the judges’ attention at Myer Fashions on the Field. Look out for designs by Jane Lamerton and Basque.

WINTER FLORALS

Winter Florals are a key trend this season. Look out for designs by Wayne by Wayne Cooper and Leona by Leona Edmiston. Rather than pretty pastel shades better suited for summer, winter florals offer a darker more dramatic look. Think deep and intense colours paired with oversized floral patterns – black, white, greens, deep reds and blues.

LEATHER LOVE

Add some attitude to your race day look with modern lines and buttery-soft leather. Mixing up textures and patterns creates the perfect mix of punk and princess. Leather detailing works well paired with animal prints for an edgy, yet elegant racewear look.
