The Melbourne Cup is the pinnacle of the Spring Racing Carnival.
The style stakes are high on Melbourne Cup day, and making a fashion statement is simple to do with the help of Be Uplifted Inc’s Op Shops.
Try these three fashionable styling techniques to look and feel fabulous this racing season.
While black and white are traditionally reserved for Derby Day, but at Be Uplited Inc we think monotone is never monotonous.
A monotone colour palette is always fashionable, and this selection shows how simply stunning a classic cut black and white dress from your favourite Be Uplifted Inc Op Shop can create a complete Raceday look.
Our Op Shops have a wonderful variety of jewellery and headpieces to complement your personal style.
Pink it up!
Our breast cancer charity loves pink, and this if you are going to stay with one colour palette and wear it well, why not let it be pink?!
Play around with different prints, patterns and textures to design a striking, individual outfit.
Clashing is okay, just so long as stick to the one colour tone. Fearing you are overplaying your colour? Tone it down with your shoes and accessories, to keep your outfit the focal point.
Up the fashion stakes with extreme colour. Bright prints and bold colour choices worn in a classic cut are what contemporary race fashion is all about. Experiment with contrasting colours or colour block for a vibrant colour statement.
We love this colourful look because it makes a strong fashion statement using a simple, well-cut print dress and complementary accessories without being overpowering. Plus the neutral, low wedge heel means comfort the entire day!
Anyone on a budget can achieve a stylish Raceday look at Be Uplifted Inc Op Shops.
Our helpful volunteer staff are on hand to assist you to create your perfect Raceday look with our fabulous variety of ladies fashion in all sizes.
