The dominant style trend we're already seeing at the Melbourne Cup.

Each year at Melbourne Cup there is a dominant trend. Whether it be tiara-like fascinators or block colours, one trend always comes out on top.

As far as we can tell from the early photos of today’s Melbourne Cup, we know that flower crowns are most definitely a thang this year.

But the classic flower crown has had a 2018 makeover.

Samantha Armytage has reinvented the flower crown with a handmade fabric floral crown by Polka.
