Dressing for the Spring Racing Carnival comes with a few rules, but it doesn’t have to be complicated. An elegant sheath dress or stylish jumpsuit paired with a sophisticated cashmere topper is perfect. Of course, don’t forget a statement fascinator or hat to complete your look.
But what about colour?
For Derby Day, the traditional colour palette is black and white. Try an Esperance & Co cashmere topper in snow or ebony. For Melbourne Cup day, it’s colour all the way. Opt for crimson, salsa or sunflower to stand out in the crowd. Oaks Day is known as Ladies Day, and the occasion calls for floaty, feminine colours such as blush, candy or cupid.
Our cashmere toppers can be worn six ways, ideal for changeable spring weather and your day at the races.
