What to Wear to Spring Racing Carnival

2nd September 2022

With the season of celebration continuing into Spring Racing Carnival around Australia, the opportunity to create exciting looks for events is the passion at Wil Valor. Working with the dress codes of racing fashion is a balance between appreciating tradition and embracing modernity, along with the elements of personal style. The carnival events each are unique in theme and importance, making the distinction in fashion an essential focus.

For men and women, Wil Valor Tailored Suits Brisbane create standout suits for each client by incorporating the themes of racing season. Start creating your bespoke look by booking a consultation and fitting with our design team, who will collaborate on ideas for your garments and accessories.


For men's suits, suiting up for racing events is classically expected, but not the only option. A jacket and tie can be matched with chinos and dress pants, while some may opt for the full three- piece suit. With many styles available to women, it could be a full tailored look, signature jacket or feminine short suit. Thereon, it is a choice of colours and finished to reflect the theme, code and individual.



It is all in the details - shirt, tie, bowtie, cufflinks, shoes, pocket chief, belt, socks and most importantly, hat. It is not uncommon for males to add a charming hat, whereas ladies place full attention on millinery as the statement piece of their outfit. Firstly, the fit and form of the suit itself begins with either a relaxed or precise cut. Looking at sleek tapered pants or double-breasted jackets, collar style and sleeve length, we find more suiting versions emerge. To colours - try shades of olive, beige or mahogany over the black or grey classics. In Spring, empower bold brights and pastels with sage, teal, rose and tangerine hues. Patterned fabrics are truly unique - pop in exotic, floral or geometric prints or classic houndstooth, pinstripes and tweed. Wil Valor Men's Suits Brisbane can help you create a racing outfit that is perfectly tailored to you, making you look and feel amazing.

Accessorising is the magic on top, at Wil Valor we admire an interesting silk Italian scarf, handmade artisan pocket-hank or vibrant leather loafers as our favourites. Working with your milliner or choice of headpiece, our design team will showcase a portfolio of special details for your bespoke look.



Derby Day is traditional, starting with classic style with the colours of black and white as the base. A pop of red, shades of grey and contrasting prints are accepted as thematic.
