Fashions on the Field has a birthday and you’re invited
We don’t want to jinx it, but being prepared for a wetter-than-usual spring racing carnival might not be a terrible idea. And, given it’s the 60th anniversary of Myer Fashions on the Field, celebrations will be bigger than ever this November, rain hail or shine. So, for pieces that pair perfectly with boots, jackets and rain-ready outerwear of all kinds, we’ve got you covered at Collins234.
For a classic little black dress that will never let you down, and can be layered up for warmth, look no further than the Little Lies Faye dress at Indigo Boutique. The light, textured fabric has an airy, playful feel and is right at home paired with gumboots or your favourite heels. The Faye dress also comes in a soft baby blue, if you’re feeling a little more spring-ish come race day.
SABA has their own little black dress if a higher hemline and a little more glamour is more your thing. Made from 100% recycled materials, the Perle mini dress is also helping you do your bit for the planet while looking fabulous.
Another classic style that the team at Indigo knows inside and out is the shirt dress. The intricate pattern and light viscose fabric of their Poppy shirt dress can be worn with or without the waist tie, and the gorgeous tapered sleeves make for a comfortable yet elegant day out at Flemington no matter the weather.
Everyone loves a classic pantsuit, and no one has a more race-ready version than SABA’s Dharma wide leg jumpsuit in beautiful ‘blush’. It’s a colour that flatters everyone and makes the perfect partner for a statement millinery piece.
For a totally unique outfit, you can mix and match your own skirts, pants and tops, and even make multiple outfits if you happen to be attending more than one special day during the carnival. For the ultimate mix-it-up outfit, we love the timeless, playful style of these Elsie skirts. They come in a range of electric colours as well as black, and are just the right hint of disco for the day time.
For more pleated loveliness you can’t go past SABA’s Perle sleeveless tops for mixing and matching with skirts, shorts or pants. The high neckline brings some serious elegance to your look, and shows itself off even under a jacket.
We also love the refined, old Hollywood style celebrated in SABA’s gorgeous Lillian blouses. They come in several colours, and look spectacular with long tailored pencil skirts and suits of all cuts.
