Inside Portside – October 2018 – Six Melbourne Cup Essentials You Need From Portside Wharf
Racing season is around the corner! Here are the six style essentials you need from Portside Wharf.
Wedges are the way
When choosing race day footwear always consider comfort over style. A wedge, from Cassardi Shoe Studio, is a wardrobe classic that adds to your outfit while allowing you to walk trackside without your heel sinking in the grass and avoid aching feet (just a suggestion)
A dress that can go from trackside to after-party should be an addition to every woman’s wardrobe. A unique silhouette can instantly add interest to any outfit. For a head-turning race day look visit Lieve Boutique or Costa Moda and find yourself the perfect outfit!
Bringing the Bling
For those who wish to forgo a headpiece, statement earrings from Co Design can be the next best option. They still look glamourous and add a little flair. Add a statement earring and mix with fine bracelets or rings to complete the look. After all who doesn’t love a little something extra?
A good race day shirt needs to be crisp, well-pressed and perfectly tailored. You’ll find all three traits at Urbbana for men. A white shirt is a classic go-to and will always look smart, but if you’re feeling bold play around with different patterns, colours and textures as Urbbana is known for their bold style (again just a suggestion).
Don’t forget the details! Vibrant hues on a fresh manicure are essential for a day by the track. Greenery and floral designs are perfect for bold spring nails. KC Nails specialise in creating bespoke nail looks that will stand out on the field.
Don’t forget to book in a blow dry from Tigerlamb or a fresh cut and shave from Bou’s for Men to ensure that you are looking your best on race day!
