There’s no shame in being on a budget, especially when spring racing hits and you have a calendar full or race days to dress for – knowing where to start is hard so I’m going to help point you in the right direction.

Don’t let the name fool you ladies, Nasty Gal have some amazing outfits for the races and the best part they are all a very NICE price! From eye catching dresses to hot shoes, you won’t spend a fortune to feel like a million bucks. If you are on a budget then looking great really just comes down to some clever styling… here’s my Etsy millinery suggestions paired with some of my favourite Nasty Gal items.

The first major Spring Racing Carnival race day is Derby Day where the traditional code of black and white applies for your entire outfit. These options give you the freedom to play with all black, all white or mix and match with textures and prints. You can also have a little bit of fun with your accessories too, how cute are those pearl sunnies!

Melbourne Cup Day is the event to go all out for and ‘make a statement’. I love colour and wow factor for Melbourne Cup so here’s some ways to style yellow, red and bright blue. The floral print maxi was just too beautiful so I had to include it, if you love a dress but it is too long then shorten it and add the fabric to your headpiece! Oh and how much fun is that pom pom headpiece? That paired with a block colour jumpsuit would be a head turner at the track for sure!

Often known as Ladies’ Day, the final major race day on the calendar is Oaks Day. Quite often it is associated with soft floral prints but if that’s not your thing then don’t be afraid to wear what you feel comfortable in. I’ve also thrown in my personal favourite, the stunning matching floral suit!!! If you have a dress which is one colour you can also play around with matching accessories to add some ‘ZING’ to your outfit. Metallic accessories are always a safe option too, they literally work with everything.

Here are some more of my other favourite items with a bit of floral, ruffle and lace thrown in for good measure. I’m sure you will also find plenty to love at Nasty Gal to suit your budget…
