We all know that accessories elevate your outfit and this could not be truer than when you are thinking about your Spring Racing outfit. Special attention to your accessories is essential if you want to nail your races look. I can’t look past one of my favourite brands The Daily Edited. Their rich burgundy and navy hues along with their extensive range of pastel pinks, taupes and baby blue have me drooling. And that’s not the only reason I love them; everything can be personalised with your monogrammed name (woo hoo) you have probably noticed I have been sporting their iPhone cover for years.
Each race day has a different theme, so it gives you more reason to play up with your accessories. Here are my tips to nail each day.
1.Derby Day is the day to keep it classic and sophisticated. I love getting dressed up for the day as it means I can wear my favourite hues of black and white. There is something special about seeing everyone rock it out in their favourite monochrome styles. This Twist Bow Clutch is the perfect addition to any Derby Day look as it is structured (which I love) but also features a beautiful bow which will elevate your look. It is the perfect touch for me as I like to keep my outfit simple, so this clutch gives my look a little edge.

2.Cup Day now we all know that Melbourne Cup is the day to go all out. It is the time you can be bold with your outfit choice and go for something that you usually wouldn’t wear. Think colour, prints, and a unique shape. You still need to pick which part of your outfit is the focus. So if you are are going to go all out with statement accessories, then I would tone down your outfit or headpiece. I love this burgundy bag, as it features a long strap which means you can enjoy your champas all day long. You can also bring in some texture with this taupe or nude ostrich clutch which would look great against some of the bold colours you decide to wear on the day.

3. Oaks Day is traditionally known as ladies day, and you know why when you look at the fashion. It’s a little girly and all about florals, pastel tones, and lace. This Oaks Day I will be wearing a sweet pastel hue and The Daily Edited is the perfect place to find your handbag. There are endless soft pastel tones, to pick from and when you get your piece monogrammed in either gold, silver or rose gold it is the perfect finished touch to your outfit on the day

4. Stakes Day. This is the most relaxed day on the racing schedule. The dress code is also a little more casual and you can let your hair down. It’s definitely the day to be a little more adventurous with your accessories. You could opt for a larger bag or even an off the shoulder bag. The Burgundy bucket bag or the Pale Pink off the shoulder bag is my pick as it’s big enough to pack all those handbag essentials like eye drops, party feet etc
