Tomorrow officially marks Autumn Racing Season 2017 kicking into full swing, as the best and the brightest 2-year-olds in the country run the Blue Diamond Stakes. Autumn racing may not be as high profile as spring, but the fact that it coincides with New York, London, Milan, and Parish Fashion Week more than makes up for it! Talk about autumn racing fashion options!
The ever-reliable Myer and David Jones, of course, have dutifully presented us with many wonderful choices from their autumn fashion launches. And boy, did they not disappoint. I think the only problem here is that there aren’t enough races to wear all my favourite dresses to.
Along with offerings from the the country’s two biggest fashion department stores, we’ve also combed the international runways for racing fashion inspiration. Below are some of our top picks: some ready to wear, some serving as inspiration. Florals, of course, will always be on point, albeit in darker palettes. Banker pantsuits for women are also happening right now, as are lace and more structured pieces.
