Spring races are upon us. And if you can nail the fashion side of things, you're bound to have all eyes on you. MH Stylist Jeff Lack talks all things spring racing fashion and how to make the right kind of statement.
A black suit on Derby Day can look a little morbid. Push the boundaries on the black and white themed day with grey, off-white and accents of chocolate brown. "Consider ditching the full suit and mixing up separate jackets and pants," says MH Style Editor Jeff Lack. "Remember - contrast is king. For a change, try mixing checks, stripes and block colours in black, white and grey tones.
Oak's or Ladies Day is all about flamboyance and colour. But you don't have to go overboard to add a touch of fun to your look. Try a floral shirt combination or an outfit featuring a floral tie," suggests Lack.

The Races are all about statement dressing so elevate your suit game with a three-piece number. Keep the fit precise with the hem of the vest hitting just below the waistline of your pants.

The final raceday of the Melbourne Cup Carnival tends to be a little more low-key. A classic two-button suit in a cotton/wool blend is ideal." Try some dark green or tone-on-tone shirt and tie options in simple block colours," says Lack.
