The Melbourne Cup and the Melbourne Cup Carnival are the highlights of the Australian racing calendar. With the Melbourne Cup literally being 'the race that stops a nation', it's a day that I have always enjoyed and have fond memories of, even as a kid growing up in Brisbane who couldn't be farther from the action.

And with different "dress codes" for each day, it can be difficult to keep up! So, if you're planning on heading along to Flemington or attending a raceday function elsewhere around the country, we've got the rundown on the dress codes to make your fashions on the field game, a winning one!
