Ladies, it's time to dust off your feathery fascinators and oversized floral headpieces- it's the Spring racing carnival again.

This year's hottest trends include dark blooms in shades of pink and blue; pretty pastels and printed silks; and lovely lady-like silhouettes reminiscent of 1950s with tailored skirts and handkerchief tops.



Spring Racing

Image sources: Glitz Dot Stud from Fossil, $49.00; Estrilada heels from Nine West, $139.95; Fillies Collection ‘Tahlia black pollbox fascinator’ from Myer $269.00; Blue Bloom Dress from Portmans, $119.95

Be forewarned though - the fashion police will be out this year, cracking down on crop tops and midriff exposing ensembles at the Melbourne Cup festivities. Our recommendation? Keep it classy and use your fascinators to give your outfit its eye-opening wow factor.

Spring Sunnies

08 September 2014, by Forrest Chase


The Telstra Perth Fashion Festival is fast approaching and it won’t be long before the Perth fashion community will be joining forces to support Western Australian designers. We can’t wait to watch the amazing local talent strut their stuff down the runway!

Each year, the dedicated team behind Telstra Perth Fashion Festival promise exciting and appealing shows with fresh and innovative faces and this year will be no exception (don’t forget the Forrest Chase show on September 19th at 12pm!). To get you ready for Spring and the Telstra Perth Fashion Festival we have put together a collection of sunglasses that are sure to protect your eyes as well as ensure you are travelling to and from Perth CBD in utmost style.

Our friends at Sunglass Hut have truly delivered this season with a range of different styles to wear on any occasion. The Ray-Ban ‘Clubmaster’ ( bottom left $309.95) are not only on-trend but they may be the most convenient pair of sunglasses we’ve ever seen! Without compromising on quality, the ‘Clubmaster’ is a classic Ray-Ban style that folds at the bridge of the sunglasses to become a neat and compact accessory that will fit anywhere. This particular pair of sunglasses is timeless and is sure to make heads turn.

For an edgy yet laidback look, try the ‘Cubist’ (Top left $39.95) sunglasses from Sportsgirl. A classically structured pair of shades, the ‘Cubist’ are for those cool kids who want to add a bit of sparkle to their outfit. We recommend pairing these sunglasses with a nude piece like this the Self Tie Trench Coat from Witchery ($249.95 see in store at Forrest Chase for details) or let your sunglasses make their own statement by wearing an all-black ensemble. Either way, Sportsgirl have yet again nailed it with their selection of shades and the best part? At only $39.95, they don’t break the bank.

For the brave, we have sourced this amazing pair of Miu Miu sunglasses (Middle right $490.00), also available from Sunglass Hut. Their unique frames are a definite standout piece and even if you have no idea what to wear to the Telstra Perth Fashion Festival, don’t worry because these shades will steal all the limelight anyway! With a choice of five colours, Miu Miu have truly delivered this season and although our credit cards may not, everyone else will be thanking you for rocking such an awesome accessory.

Who doesn’t love a bit of reflective action? Ray-Ban have hit the nail on the head with this pair of rock star aviators that are the epitome of awesome (Bottom right $249.95). The combinations of colours are endless so no matter what your outfit, Sunglass Hut has you covered. Ray-Ban aviators are the ultimate pair of sunglasses for those channelling the current sport-luxe trend that Perth is loving oh so much.

The pick from Portmans is the ‘All Day, All Night’ sunglasses and the name embodies exactly what these sunglasses are – a classic and versatile accessory that can be worn at any time of day (Top right $39.95). If you are heading to a day runway show, the ‘All Day, All Night’ sunglasses are a great extra addition to an outfit and the tortoiseshell is so timeless.

Speaking of international runways, Prada have released a unique cat-eye pair of sunglasses that sunglass lovers all over the world are swooning over (Middle left $390.00). The quality is undeniable and the materials used epitomise Prada’s brand vision. They are completely exclusive which means if you want to be one of a kind at the Telstra Perth Fashion Festival this year, these one of a kind sunglasses are the pair for you. You can snag a pair of these Prada sunglasses from Myer in Forrest Chase.

So no matter the occasion, budget or outfit, Forrest Chase has you covered for sunglasses this season. Sunglasses are the perfect accessory as they are practical yet can also complete an entire look. If you are heading to any shows at the Telstra Perth Fashion Festival, ensure you make the time to pop in to Forrest Chase to view our exclusive selection of sunglasses and sit front row with your shades, à la Anna Wintor.

Here’s to spring!
