Cover story: She's all class and elegance

The key to the right raceday outfit is to keep it classic and elegant and dress like a lady. This advice comes from Ooby Ryn designer Robyn Brooks, who is well known for her stunning raceday outfits and dresses people around the country for racing events.

"The races are a traditional event, you should dress lady-like - not like you're going to the nightclub. Dresses should finish at the knee or a bit below and a classic silhouette is important, as is headwear.

"Hats are bigger this season, rather than fascinators. You pick the right hat to fit in with your outfit and colours. Accessorising is about paying attention to detail, with gloves and perhaps stockings if they work in with your outfit, matching bag, shoes and belt."
