The Sydney Autumn Carnival is always a highlight on the racing calendar, with the Golden Slipper and The Championships being two of the biggest days. You can be sure that fashion on the field will be competitive. So to help you get that winning dress we’ve picked some of our favs for each event.

The Golden Slipper

MOS the Label

We recommend the eye-catching Ministry of Style Garden Midi Dress. This dress is sure to turn heads with its bold prints and elegant silhouette. Otherwise if you’re looking for something with a bit more drama (a distraction from all the races)?

Check out the striking Flower Garden Cotton Linen Dress by Leo Lin with its exaggerated puff sleeves, intricate detailing and colourful patterning. It's the perfect dress to make a statement.

The Championships

Ginger and Smart

You can't go wrong with the stunning Ginger & Smart Souvenir Gown. This dress features a flattering draped design and a dramatic floor-length hem. Make sure you’re friends are bringing you the drinks and food. It’s not fun walking around too much with a gown!


Alternatively, the Maticevski Attentive Ruffle Dress. It’s a one-of-a-kind dress with a flattering fit-and-flare silhouette. This would be a standout option for this event. Wearing something a little ‘racey’ (Pun intended) is what’s in at the moment! You’ll feel amazing.

All Aged Stakes


For the All Aged Stakes in Sydney, we recommend the elegant and sophisticated Thurley Enchanted Mini Dress. Its classic silhouette and intricate lace detailing make it the perfect choice for a day at the races.

Rebecca Vallance

Alternatively,  go crazy and pick something colourful (Big colours are in). The stunning Rebecca Vallance Tirana Dress with its bold print and figure-hugging silhouette would be a standout option for this event.

The Doncaster Mile

For the Australian Cup, we love the sophisticated By Johnny Fluer Tie Black Midi Dress. It features a playful floral print and a figure-hugging silhouette.
