What to wear to Melbourne Cup 2020

Strike a pose in these statement-making shoes, dresses and fascinators for Melbourne Cup day 2020.

If you’re into fashion, Melbourne Cup isn’t about the horses. It’s the day when all eyes are glued to the fashion on the fields. It’s a glamorous, star-studded event and everyone is invited to dress up and pull out their fanciest frocks. Out of all the events on the Spring Racing calendar, this is the big one. And if you’re dressing to impress, this is the day you’ll want to bring out the real showstoppers and high-fashion pieces in your closet.

Sequins, chiffon, embroidery and silks are all welcome at this fashion event – whatever makes the biggest impact. Just remember to factor in the “no midriffs” and “no strapless dress” traditions of racing fashion.

Even if you’re not celebrating on the field – perhaps you’re having a party at home or in the office – there’s no reason not to dress up! Scroll through to see the hottest, statement-making fascinators, dresses and shoes we’ve found for Melbourne Cup day 2020 on Tuesday 5 November.
