What to wear to Stakes Day 2019

Here are the prettiest shoes, dresses and fascinators for this year’s Stakes Day event.

Closing out the major events in the Spring Racing Carnival is Stakes Day. It’s the last major event during the Spring Racing season and has been dubbed “family day”. The high fashion events like Oaks Day and Melbourne Cup are over and all the fashionistas have already worn their striking showpieces. So Stakes Day, while still a fashion event, is a lot more relaxed and a great time for the whole family to dress up and enjoy.

Stakes Day - on 10 November - is a day to fully embrace spring fashion and dress in your favourite florals. Since the high-fashion pressure is off, you can enjoy a shorter hemline and a looser fit. This year, most of the major Australian brands have dubbed pink as the trending colour this season, and this is the perfect breezy day to go girly and clad yourself in blush and rose.

Scroll through our top picks for shoes, fascinators and dresses for “family day” or Stakes Day 2019 at the races.
