Oaks Day Fashion Edit 2016

Oaks Day fashion is all about flying your feminine flag: romantic silhouettes, sweet florals, and lace, lace, and more lace! It’s also known as Ladies’ Day, when even the gentlemen make a point of adding feminine touches to their apparel, whether it’s a floral print tie or a purple pocket square. Milliners are given special recognition on this day, and it also marks the culmination of MYER’s Fashions on the Field Competition.

The racing highlight of the day is the Group 1 Crown Oaks, run by three-year-old fillies over 2,500 metres at the Flemington Racecourse. Total prize money is $1,000,000.
