20 Oct ITS RACE SEASON

It’s that exciting time of the year where we have to get used to wearing more skin-revealing clothing and apply fake tan to bring back our lost summer glow, as well as prepare for race day events. Lost of ideas of what to wear? Don’t know where to begin to search for some inspiration? Well, this season of spring summer 2016/2017 fashion has moved on to the pastel trend. Say goodbye to bright, bold colours and floral prints and hello to adorable pastel colours! Think shades of: mint green, light lavender, peachy orange and baby pink.

Wearing pastels creates a sophisticated, classy and girly look. Topped off with matching accessories, heels of your colour choice and soft wavy hair you will be looking as dashing as these female celebrities come Melbourne Cup.
