If you love romantic racewear then Oaks Day is the day for you. It is considered the most glamorous day and features the final of the Myer Fashions on the Field. The day is packed full of beautiful feminine fashion which works perfectly with this year’s pastel Pantone colours Serenity and Rose Quartz. Blue and pink are a match made in heaven!

You can’t go wrong with soft and pretty florals like those available from Cooper St but you can also add some colour to a nude base or experiment with earthy tones with dresses from Acler and C/meo Collective. Choose a headpiece that contrasts with the colours in your dress like the pink Lousie MacDonald headband or go with a soft and subtle brimmed Sophie Beale hat.
Crown Oaks Day’s significance on the fashion calendar is further reinforced with the crowning of the Myer Fashions on the Field Women’s Racewear national winner.
