Spring Racewear Guide 2012


Emma is owner of Headonism Millinery and today shares some of her favourite Spring racewear with us. Headonism recently designed headpieces for Ange Lang for Perth Fashion Festival.

The Spring Racing Carnival kicks off here in Perth at Ascot this coming Saturday, 20th October. There are so many trends to choose from this season.  Pastels, floral, neon, nude and classic black and white.  There’s so much fun to be had and I can’t wait to see the creations the stylish ladies of Perth come up with at the Myer Fashions on the Field competition!

If you haven’t found an outfit yet there is still time to find something.  Here are a few accessible choices ranging from high street to designer.

Don’t forget the most important part that will make or break your outfit – your headwear. There are a number of milliners in Perth each with their own unique style that can make you a bespoke piece to go with your outfit.

This floaty, feminine David Lawrence floral dress is so ‘spring’ like.  It would look lovely with a headpiece that focuses on the pink in the dress.

David Lawrence Oriental Floral Silk Dress $249

This Cue dress is in such a pretty, minty shade and is easy to accessorise with a statement headpiece with neutral bag and shoes.

Simple nude tones are always a winner.  I love the peplum detail on this Nicola Finetti dress.
This Saba dress is also a fantastic choice.
You could match this dress with this beautifully detailed tonal Headonism Millinery headpiece.

Myer stylist AndAndrea picked this Nicola Finetti number as one of her spring racing choices and I have to agree it is this seasons racing perfection in it’s ladylike hue.
Lemon is a gorgeous, fresh springtime colour and this feminine dress would be perfectly teamed with this headpiece.

Classic Black and White elegance – I absolutely love this clean understated Saba dress, the silky back detail makes it super elegant.  Also available in a nude which is also beautiful.
Finally for something quite different I really like the idea of silver and navy, you could accessorise the dress with a navy belt to tie in the headpiece.
