It may be the most southern part of the country, but racewear enthusiasts will aim to put Tasmania on the fashion map next week when the next round of  Myer Fashions on the Field state finals takes place at the 2014 Hobart Cup.

As with the Queensland final’s early start, judges will be looking for racewear that is appropriate for the day, but also for trends that are appropriate for next spring. (We suggest partaking in some fashion form study on style.com to see the winning trends for next season.)
