[emphasized type=”emphasized”]The Melbourne Cup Spring Racing Carnival officially concluded on Saturday with the last race day, Emirates Stakes Day. Finishing up in extraordinary style, Stakes Day was a family-fun affair, with adults and children coming together to enjoy a day of racing, entertainment and fashion.[/emphasized]
We were on the ground covering all things street-fashion and managed to snap some last minute fashionistas who were able to turn heads (in a good way).
Stakes day called for relaxed styles, as this was the day to unwind and have some fun! Linen/cotton blazers in pastel blues were a hit for the guys, whilst the double breasted blazer over white chinos also had a solid run. Khaki and beige were seen in plenty, and a touch of red was subtly added to complement outfits.
Women were seen in relaxed blazers, free-flowing dresses and ‘red’ was the centrepiece colour of the day. Yellow and burnt-orange were also a popular choice.
The Birdcage enclosure was loud and vibrant, as marquees entertained their guests for one more day.
A day for families, the Emirates marquee hosted guests of all ages, including Olympia Valance and mum Tania, Billy Brownless and daughters Lucy and Ruby, Brendan Fevola with his clan, and Rachel Griffith with her daughter Adelaide.
All in all, the 2016 Melbourne Cup Spring Racing Carnival was a truly wonderful event. Getting bigger and better every year, the birdcage enclosure was yet again a great spectacle for those lucky enough to witness and enjoy.
On behalf of The Tailored Man team, it was a great pleasure to be apart of the fashionable affair, and we hope you enjoyed our insight into the street style that was seen in this year’s birdcage enclosure.
