On November 1st, all over Australia, people pause to watch the Melbourne Cup. This means fashionistas’ outfits should be equally show-stopping. As there isn’t an official Melbourne Cup Day fashion brief as such, it’s important to dress to your taste and style. And remember the key to a stylish ensemble – keep your look classy, elegant and unique! 🙂

As pastel pink is the it colour of the moment, I thought it would be fitting to include a pink dress in my outfit. I chose an off the shoulder design as the cold shoulder trend, so to speak, has taken over the runways this season and is a wardrobe essential this Spring/Summer.

For accessories, I chose simple and elegant designs as I think the iconic dress speaks for itself. Statement earrings step this classy and feminine outfit up a notch, whilst a barely there rose gold necklace with a diamond pendant adds charm and adds a touch of youth to the ensemble.

Shoes wise I wanted something with impact, and I think these Steve Madden heels tick all the boxes.With delicate fur detailing (trend alert), I found it terribly hard to resist…
