Spring Racing Carnival has a whole day dedicated towards a black-and-white dress theme. Derby Day is this Saturday and demand for monochrome frocks is off the charts.

For those not wanting to spend exorbitant amounts on their look, we’ve found some stunning frocks that will nail the theme without breaking the bank.

Mono Halter Mini Dress, Sportsgirl, $109.95.

We love a good print – not least of all because it will hide any accidental champagne spills during the day.

Alanis Strappy Jumpsuit, Portmans, $99.

A jumpsuit is a glamorous alternative to the usual dress options. Pair with a wide-brim hat and over-sized shades to channel Amal Clooney (because who doesn't want to do that at least once in their life).

Dannii Minogue Petites Rib Bodycon Dress, Target, $39.

For less than the cost of most fascinators, what's not to like?

 RSVP Spliced Dress, Portmans, $119.95.

It's black. It's white. It has a saucy split. It's comfortable and can definitely be worn to work on Monday.

Madeline Off The Shoulder Mini Dress, Forever New, $139.99.

It's short, cute, and those flared sleeves and heavy brocade fabric are the finishing touch.

 Blossom Lace Off-the-Shoulder Dress, Atmos & Here on The Iconic, $119.95.

This Atmos & Here frock looks like it should be costing a heck of a lot more than just $119.95. Steal.

With a soft V-neckline and super-femme lacy detailing, this pretty white dress is going to be a major staple for summer cocktail parties.

No More Time Midi Dress, Cooper St at Myer, $149.95

Black and white florals are so Betty Draper, right? We love the interesting cross-over design on the top.

 Cupid Lace Jumpsuit, Sheike, $59.00.

If Nadia Bartel and Jesinta Campbell showed us anything from this year's Brownlows, it's that a beautiful jumpsuit can outshine a fancy frock any day.
