The Melbourne Cup is one of the biggest days in the racing and social calendar. Celebrities often spend weeks prepping looks in advance with their stylist (follow @Jess_Pecoraro for proof!) and from what we've spotted so far, all the prep work has been well worth it.
We stopped in our tracks when we spotted Pip Edwards' outfit on Instagram. While there are countless dress code rules for race day, we love that Pip has stepped away from what we'd normally see, and worn something so original and unexpected.
P.E Nation's co-founder arrived at the Melbourne Cup this year sporting a tan suit from Dion Lee's S/S 19 collection that featured a tailored blazer and, wait for it, bermuda shorts. She paired the look with a Gucci straw hat, Fendi mini bucket bag, Balenciaga heels and two Cartier Juste un Clou bangles.
It's looking very likely that we'll be shunning dresses in favour of short suits this summer.
