We can all relate to that fuzzy feeling we get on the inside at the beginning of spring when the temperature starts to rise a couple of notches. Winter layers are being peeled off, flowers are coming into full bloom and everyone seems a little happier. The best part? Spring Racing Carnival.

It's one of the biggest (and most stylish) events on the fashion calendar, each year attracting A-listers and thousands of race-day goers to dress their best and inspiring us all to make our way trackside.

From striking monochromatic looks to easy ladylike glam, these are the 16 retailers to pay attention to when shopping for your spring races dresses this season. Whether you prefer frocks and fascinators to soft suiting and hats, you're bound to find plenty of eye-catchers here.

      Hi Tash,

      I believe your best bets are:

      Green With Envy
      Cue
      Review
      Kookai
      BNKR

      All those stores have a number of longer sleeved dresses appropriate for the races all within your price range.

      I hope this helps.

      Thanks for your comment.
