The Caulfield Cup is not just one of the biggest fashion events during Spring Racing, it’s one of the biggest fashion events of the year. Celebrities, Influencers and the fashion crowd are all out wearing their race-day best on the day of the Caulfield Cup – which takes place on Saturday 19 October 2018.

Unlike events like Derby Day, there is no strict dress code for the Caulfield Cup. But over the years a fashion trend has definitely emerged. This is the day that many choose to wear bold colours and statement-making pieces – while remembering the no bare midriff and no strapless dress tradition. Think striking jewel-tones, colour-pop shoes and colour-block dresses.

If you’re looking for some pieces to wear to the Caulfield Cup this year, scroll through to see the top fashion picks for 2021.
