Derby Day looks for the sophisticated mama

So you’re going to Derby Day, but you’re not the kind of lady who is partial to larger than life millinery, and you prefer your looks to epitomise your personality- Chic and Considered. Derby day is the perfect day to showcase New Zealand designers, they scream cool, and our tendency to lean towards monochromatic looks in our everyday dress means there are a ton of options to choose from, no matter what your preference is.
