Whilst it’s customary to wear something atop your head throughout the Spring Racing carnival, there are more than a few ways you can mix things up when it comes to trackside styling. Crowns and fascinators are striking in their own right, but what about the minimalist among us? Or those who prefer to break the mould?

Stylist Erin Maxwell has stepped in to show us how to wear some of the more unexpected statement pieces with this season’s must-have race-day trends.


An ultimate hair “quick fix”, this season we step up the humble headband game, detailing it with a padded leather knot designed to replicate the dramatic look of a turban or headscarf…with almost no effort – win!

Style our Knot Shy Aliceband with loosely tousled tresses, positioning it atop your hairline. A silk slip dress and classic blazer is the perfect apparel counterpart for such a simple and elegant choice of headwear.


There’s a reason why this classic style is back on top. Coco Chanel brought the man-style boater into new territory, and we’re not ones to argue with a legend.

Whilst it may seem simple, wearing our Gusto Boater to the track is the perfect opportunity to show off an enviable hairstyle and a truly statement-making dress. Tip yours towards the front of your head and style it with a chic low bun.


There is perhaps no greater signal that it’s spring than the presence of florals – they might be cliché but they never fail to add a feminine touch.

Fresh florals (pun intended) are the perfect antidote to tradition, and our silicon hairpins are designed to be anything but fussy. Slide our Flourish Pins into the top of a ponytail or bun or pin them behind your ears, on one side or two.
