As the weather warms up we get to see beautiful Melbourne in a whole new light.  The city has been a buzz with the Grand Final celebrations, award ceremonies and of course the beginning of the Spring Racing Carnival. But like with any important celebration there are a million and one things to consider; weather, dress code, comfort? Here are three failsafe tips that we believe will help this season. 

1.  Layering:  Spring time is notorious for its quick changes so you will need to be prepared for a quick change too.  Always check the forecast first and remember to take a jacket with you if it's looking a bit unpredictable.

A cropped blazer such as this Thurley number will do the trick. 
2. A clutch can make or break your outfit:  Each year we see hundreds of women pick out a gorgeous dress, match the perfect headpiece, and then reach for their trusty old handbag. Ensuring that your accessories, especially your clutch compliments your outfit rather than distracts from it is crucial during the Spring Carnival. 
Aim to match your clutch with your dress or millinery - not necessarily both. For example a navy clutch will work back beautifully with navy millinery, but opt for nude shoes so as to not look too matchy matchy. 
We can't go past the 'Lady Luck Clutch' this Spring Carnival. 
3. Alcohol Wipes:  Yes you read that correctly! These alcohol wipes are incredible for tackling any food or makeup mishaps. Unlike a face/baby wipe they won't leave a water mark and they are tiny enough to fit in your purse. 
You will find them at any local chemist. 
Happy Racing!
