17 Black and White Dresses Perfect For Derby Day and Beyond
Every day on the Spring Racing Carnival comes with a dress code, but none as iconic as Derby Day. This year, Derby Day is scheduled for Nov. 1 and is set to be one of the most prestigious on Melbourne's calendar. It's where all the cool girls (Jennifer Hawkins, we're looking at you) come out dressed head-to-toe in black and white.
Unlike Melbourne Cup, which is famous for fancy headwear and lashings of colour, Derby Day is sleek, simple, refined, and if we're honest, the easiest racing event to frock up for. Because right now stores of the bricks and mortar and virtual kind are bulging at the seams with cute cocktail pieces in black, white, or a combination of both. In fact, current seasons at Camilla and Marc, Maticevski, Cameo and Zimmermann are almost completely dedicated to the colour code.
