Whether it’s Epsom Derby Day, Victoria Derby or The Championships at Royal Randwick this Saturday, the racing rulebook decrees black and white is the proper attire.
Female racegoers embrace monochromatic hues on the day that the Derby is raced. Stylish men don mid grey morning suits with tidy vests and a cornflower blue accent in the tie, lapel flower or pocket square.
Chic it up to date with some inspiration from the Ready To Wear Fall 2015 shows. Keep the lines clean, hemlines 3/4+, cocoon the silhouette and channel an androgynous vibe.
