Hats fashion: What to wear to the Oakbank Easter Racing Carnival on Saturday

IF you’re serious about looking the part on Saturday, you’ll wear your smartest casual outfit to the 139th Oakbank Easter Racing Carnival.

Oakbank Racing Club chairman John Glatz said about 60,000 people were expected to attend the two-day event, which is the world’s biggest picnic race meeting, concluding on Monday.

Saturday is traditionally “family day”, with groups waiting for the gates to open at 7am to set up camp and cook barbecue breakfasts.

Monday, meanwhile, is popular with social clubs and hotel patrons travelling to Oakbank to make a day of it.

With the Bureau of Meteorology predicting a maximum of 25C, today’s racegoers will look the part in new season fashions in autumnal colours such as those worn by Tanya Powell Model Agency’s Crystal and Jannis.

While not traditional racewear, their smart casual outfits and felt hats from Zara at Burnside Village are perfect for Oakbank’s family day.

Monday, which will be windy with a shower or two and a top of 18C, is the day to dress up in winter racewear.

Those who want to be in the running to win the Fashion at the Races Oakbank Final should follow guidelines, which for women include hemlines on or below the knee and must-have millinery.

Introduced last year to appeal to “sophisticated racegoers”, The Paddock precinct will be back with a DJ playing laid-back tunes on vinyl. Local fare will be on offer too.

“We wanted to bring Oakbank back to its roots — reviving the grandeur of racing in a unique country setting and The Paddock proved a great way to do this,” Mr Glatz said.
