One of the stand-out events on the Australian Spring Racing Carnival calendar is Derby Day, which this year falls on 2 November. Why is it a stand-out? Because this event has a fashion twist: it’s monochrome only. While this is not an official rule, the black and white tradition for Derby Day dates back to the 1960s.
Since springtime usually means florals, pinks and pastels, Derby Day is a great excuse to pull out those fun LBDs and monochrome printed pieces that you might not get another chance to wear. Just remember to stick to the other fashion codes of the races: nothing too skimpy, no strapless pieces and no midriff-bearing numbers.
If you’re looking to shop for a few pieces ahead of Derby Day 2021, keeping reading because we’ve picked out some of the hottest black and white dresses, shoes and fascinators for the new season.
