Cheap and Chic: Spring Racing Fashion

Laura Peppas

Warm weather? Tick. Bubbly at the ready? Tick. Yes, the Spring Racing season is finally here.

But whether you’re hitting the track or just frocking up for the annual office afternoon tea, picking an outfit for race day can be tricky.

Luckily, we’ve got you covered with the latest episode of our Cheap and Chic series, brought to you by the Canberra Outlet Centre, which focuses on all the latest trends for spring racing fashion at prices that won’t make you run for the hills.

Host Nicole Dwight will take you through the must-have looks for the season, visiting stores including Trade Secret, Cue and Diana Ferrari.

Expect to see plenty of textured fabrics, 1970s prints and crisp whites, (if you’re feeling brave!)

And because millinery is a must for racing, we’ve teamed up with Jade Sargent from Canberra label Sovata, who has provided some gorgeous headwear to go with each look. Enjoy!
