From the Stylist: Spring Racing Style; Getting it Bright

Stylist Sally McKinnon
This year’s Spring Racing Carnival has kicked off and fashionista’s will be taking the opportunity to show off this season’s trends trackside.

One trend that is sure to get you noticed is wearing bright or neon colours. Not quite as fluorescent as the 80s, this season’s brights are a great way to inject some fun and colour into your race day outfit. The key is to mix and compliment your colour combinations with accessories, but you don’t have to be too matchy-matchy. Stick to the three colour rule when choosing your race day accessories; match either your shoes and hat, shoes and bag, or bag and hat (i.e. not all three) The third accessory can match or compliment a third colour in your outfit.  

How to wear it-
If the idea of wearing a bright colour head to toe is a little daunting, then choose pops of colour in your accessories. Classic colours like black, navy and white work well with brighter shades like yellow, pink, red and orange.
