The Best of Melbourne Cup Fashion 2016

Almandin may have taken home the Melbourne Cup trophy (Heartbreak City came second, what irony!), but the real winners in my book are the racegoers. What a feast for the eyes it was! The unofficial Cup Day dress code has always been bold and show-stopping, and Melbourne Cup Fashion 2016 did not disappoint. Red ruled the day, as well as solid colour-blocking, capes, and cape-like sleeves. Without further ado, here is the best of Melbourne Cup Fashion 2016. See you tomorrow at Oaks Day (check out my fashion edit here if you’re still looking for an outfit)!
