Having trouble deciding on the perfect headpiece to complement your spring racing outfit?

You wouldn’t be the only girl who has had the issue – there’s so many things to take into account!

Milliner Penelope D’Alton, who has had her beautiful designs place in many Fashion on the Field competitions over the years, shared five tips for choosing the perfect piece.


1) At the races, your millinery piece should be the statement of your outfit in an elegant but not overpowering way.

2) Your millinery piece should be both comfortable and secure as you’ll be wearing it all day.

3) The colour of the millinery piece should suit your skin tone as well as your outfit.

4) You need to talk to your milliner about what works with your height, head size and face shape.

5) Finally, the millinery piece should make you feel great and exude confidence. It should be something that you want to wear again!

Penelope, among others, will be launching her Spring collection at MAArvelous Millinery 2015, held by the Millinery Association of Australia at the Arts Centre Melbourne on Thursday 17 September.
