Alex Perry’s Top 5 Tips For The Spring Racing Carnival

October 28, 2011

With Melbourne Cup upon us, Electrolux Fabric Care Ambassador and Australia’s most glamorous fashion designer, Alex Perry, shares his expert fashion advice to ensure you are the talk of the field, for all the right reasons. To make sure you’re on the best-dressed list, Alex has prepared his top five fashion tips for this year’s Spring Racing Carnival:

1. The little block dress

This season is all about the gorgeous little block-coloured dress! Whether you are packing a punch of high voltage colour or choosing to mix pastels, make sure you are oozing with confidence and have fun owning the limelight.

2. Don’t over accessorise

One spectacular headpiece, preferably in lace for that added sophistication, is all you need.

3. Dare to go bare

A perfect pair of high platform nude slingbacks is the ultimate shoe that will go with everything you own.

4. It’s the little things that count

Splash out at your favourite salon and be impeccably groomed. That means a beautiful manicure and pedicure, preferably with a classic French finish.

5. Add some glitz to your garb

Indulge in a stunning jewelled over-sized clutch which is not only a fabulous way to complete your look but perfect for storing your make-up essentials.
