Spring Racing season is just about here, which means it’s time to dust off the old frock, rummage through the wardrobe to find something bright and fun and head off to all the social events!

If you’ve never been before and you’re wondering what on earth to wear – the fashions on the field celebrate femininity, lady-like ensembles and ooze sophistication.

It’s all about pairing your heels with a frock, carrying the right clutch and topping it all off with the perfect hairpiece and jewels!

We’ve taken note from Fashion Weekly, and have paired their key trends for fashions on the field with some #EtsyAU finds:

Pastels: Have pastels ever gone out of season?!
The sugary sweet pastel trend will be quite popular this year at the Spring Racing Carnival. Get ready to see soft pinks, lilacs, mint greens and baby blues in 1950’s silhouettes.

Renee Miami shows us what’s what with her Lemon Icing Splice Drop earrings.


Print on Print – if it’s bold they want, it’s bold they shall get.
The clashing of prints has never been so popular. This year, fashion lovers will show off their wild side by breaking the rules and mixing patterns together for a brave feast of edgy, quirky and fun fashion.

Bird Skin are the kings of detail with their collection of clashing prints and patterns and textures. If you want to wow the crowd, then take a look at their collection.
Esther Sandler is creating clutches to remember, full of colour and perfect to clash against any gown.

Monochrome is a lady like combination that is forever chic. Black and white is classic and effortless and lends itself to the feel of feminine, understated glamour.
