A day at the races is a truly fabulous reason to frock up, but along with the hat, heel and horse-related choices there are some rather important dress codes to contend with. To set the record straight on everything from this season's biggest racing trends to what sort-of-hat to wear with what-sort-of-dress, we enlisted the expertise of Westfield's head stylist Ken Thompson. Combined with some of our favourite celebrity looks from the Spring Carnival's biggest race days so far, consider this the only form guide you'll be needing. Ready, set? Go!

What are your hard and fast rules for getting it right at the races?

  • Think Spring! It's all about sorbet colours.
  • To-the-knee outfits and straw or light-weight head-pieces are de rigueur.
  • This is the season of tailoring — a beautifully fitted jacket will be one of the strongest looks this season.
