Current Favourite Trends to Draw Race Day Inspiration From

Ahead of Karaka Million and Auckland Cup Week at Ellerslie you may need some inspiration for your race day outfits. I’ve put together some of my favourite current trends that are gracing the runways that could be amazing incorporated into race day fashion.

Oversized Gold Jewellery and Tortoise Shell Accessories

Gold jewellery is still a huge trend, with oversized gold earrings everywhere you look. I’m especially loving gold hoops, gold stacks (if you have multiple piercings) and tortoise shell jewellery and pieces with a combo of both.


The Glitter Trend

Fabric textures and detailing can really make an outfit interesting – think sequins, diamantes and beading. This trend is no longer just reserved for evenings out and has been seen all over the international runways for 2018/2019. I am obsessed with this Alberta Ferretti outfit and this Gucci skirt which would give you endless options for playing with colour.


Statement Hair Clips

Statement hair clips are having a moment, try mixing up your millinery and choose a stack of them on one side of your head with a side-part in your hair, or on both sides with a middle part as seen on the Versace runway.



Fringed fabric adds movement and texture and it is definitely being spotted everywhere. I love it in this gorgeous pink, Herve Leger Dress (pictured left).


See you at Karaka Million!
