Hands up if you’re heading to the races for the Autumn Racing Carnival. Yes? Okay, then have you picked out a frock, chic yet comfy kicks, plus a statement-making headpiece to wear to the track?
If your answer is yes, then props to you for planning ahead! If, however, you’re shaking your head, we suggest you get your ensemble sorted out quick smart, because we predict there’ll soon be a rush on all things race-day related when other punters, like you, also realise they’re cutting it fine if they want to pull together a winning trackside look for the last events on the autumn racing calendar.
