Great Gatsby casts influence on race day fashions
THE Great Gatsby is not only entertaining crowds, it's influencing fashions.
While Gladstone's effervescent sunshine ensures winter races are never too cold, those looking for a dress style outside of the usual can take note.
Gatsby is 1920s style, so think tunic dresses, feather boas and tassels.
Men's fashion is a gentleman's style.
Lighter coloured clothing such as powder blue go down a treat, especially if they're matched with a classy bowtie.
A strapping tweed or pinstripe jacket will ensure a dashing appearance, matched with cream coloured or white pants.
And to top it off, a Homburg hat or slouch cap is perfect for tipping your hat to sweep the ladies off their feet.
