Melbourne Cup Day Fashion Tips

Tip #1

Cup Day Colour:

This spring season is all about being bold. The colours red, pink, blue, yellow, white, and floral are all in for the race season. Don’t be afraid to mismatch unexpected colours, they will create surprising combinations.

Colour Chart:

  1. Rose Quartz
    This colour has a resemblance to pale pink. Although it is a pastel, it suits every skin tone and can be matched with bold colours. If you are planning on wearing this colour, make sure you match with bold accessories and colour.
  2. Mustard Yellow
    Mustard yellow is a dull/dark yellow colour that resembles culinary mustard. It is a very specific tone of yellow. Be warned this colour doesn’t suit everyone; it looks particularly great on redheads and ash blondes. Pair this colour with a bright red lip and you will kill this look.
  3. Monochrome
    Black and white bold patterns are perfect for this race day. The great thing about bold black and white prints is you can match literally anything with it.
  4. Marsala
    Marsala can be grouped as a type of red. It is the colour of the year. Think slightly muted, not quite burgundy but has a touch of Paprika.
