Six on-trend looks for Spring Carnival season

We all know the thrill of pulling on a brand new outfit for a fancy event. But all too often I’ve looked away as I snapped the pricetag off my new threads, mentally trying to justify the piece in my wardrobe in the long run. 

The glow of the piece fades fast as it hangs in my wardrobe, month after month, without an occasion to wear it. By the time the next big event does roll around, it’s completely out of fashion – or just not my style anymore.

For the savvy girl who wants to stay on-trend without spending a fortune every season, hiring your high fashion for your event is an interesting new option. You get the look for less, and none of the guilts afterwards. 

Get Dressed Hire brings us some on-trend looks for your day at the races. 

Go modern and powerful in a tailored pant suit

Cut an elegant figure in a one-piece jumpsuit or pant suit for the ideal symbiosis of comfort and style. Dress it up with a pair of heels and a statement hat for a modern twist on typical dresses.

Channel some old world glamour in a full-length gown with lots of gorgeous detail to create shape and interest. There’s something that feels so lux about lots of soft fabric hugging your curves.

Flirty and feminine, these dresses channel otherworld magic and look perfect with a paired-back bun and minimal jewellery for a chic statement. Think regal colours like golds, purples and blues, and run some bronzer over those pins for the perfect tan.

Go minimal sleek in neutral, modern cuts

Exude confidence and charisma in a minimalist neutral cut, hugging all the right places and accentuating a few others. A statement arm is perfect for elongating your figure and creating movement. This style is perfect for a statement hat or heels.

Dare to dress in a bold statement design

Go bold with big pattern and shape and make your mark against the crowd. Patterns are ideal for flattering any body shape and are a look all in their own. Leave the accessories at home and let the dress do the talking.

Glam up your look with a crown instead of a fascinator

Stand out from the rest with a little bling atop your look – a crown is cute twist on a fascinator without feeling like you’ll topple over at any stage. Add one to your look for instant bling.
