Derby Day this year saw Melbourne pulling out all the stops: amazing sunshine, a great atmosphere, and absolutely killer style. The monochromatic rules of the day mean that the style is all in the details. This year the biggest trends were ruffles, lace overlays, and subtle cutouts. I also saw a lot of full-brim hats over crowns and traditional millinery (and fascinators are SO out!).
