Melbourne Cup Stylist
How do you do this? Hold up clothing from your own wardrobe and see what colour lights up your face the most. It’s great to try new colours while out shopping too, colours you have never tried before as you might just surprise yourself!
With so many options, how do you choose? Where do you even start?
With a mass of clothing already in the shops for spring racing, how do you know what styles are best for your body shape? Pantsuits, pencils, and trapeze dresses played a huge role in last year’s spring racing carnival however different cuts and styles of clothing determine the final silhouette of any women’s body shape. You may be heavier on the top and smaller on the bottom or have a larger bootie and narrow shoulders. Then what size bust do you have? All of these factors are taken into perspective when Bridget is styling you for any event.
Comfort is key, says Melbourne Cup Stylist Bridget Bell. It’s one thing to look amazing however having the right comfort level is key to staying trackside all day. Bridget has knowledge of footwear brands to perfect your look, and be comfortable all day long and the most important part is being able to repurpose your shoes for another occasion so they are not left collecting dust in your wardrobe.
Headwear, where do you even start I hear you say? Each year the spring racing carnival comes to light, and milliners have been working madly behind the scenes to create new and exciting styles often set by the northern hemisphere racing trends. Once upon a time, full-brim hats were part of the traditional racing look, and then came the new trend of fascinators followed by headbands.
- The scale of the headwear to your dress
- The colour of your dress you want to highlight the most should it be multi-coloured
- The shape of your head needs to be flattering. Often diagonal shapes are most flattering.
