We may be a little biased, but Melbourne really is one of the best cities in the world! On the back of the Australian Open, we jump straight into the Formula One. In truth it's so bloody cool they're both in our backyard.
The dress code for the F1 is ultimately quite dependent on your tickets. The event itself is quite similar to the Australian Open; general admin entry is fairly relaxed, whilst corporate (or Paddock Club) ticket will leans towards the smart-casual/dressy attire.
The Grand Prix is slightly less formal than the tennis, so don't forget to flex your yellow Daniel Ricciardo Renault cap.
What Do I Wear If I've Been Invited?
Melbourne is the first stop on the F1 calendar; and being the first race of the season, people from all over the globe will be in attendance. If you've been invited, chances are that you'll be in a corporate suite rubbing shoulders with the who's who. These guys will be dressed to the nines, so we recommend a smart-casual style at the very least.
Whilst a blazer isn't necessarily 'required', it'll be a fantastic addition to your outfit, and can be worn with tailored chinos & a tailored shirt that's left open collar. Finish the look off with a pocket square.
The weather tends to still be a little warmer this time of year, so think summer styles (soft pastel colours).
Not feeling the jacket? At the very least wear a collared top such as a polo or casual shirt with a nicely fitting pair of trousers & dress sneakers or loafers.
Whatever tickets you have, a day at the F1 is a fun day out. With so many different cars on show, expect to do a bit of walking. Assuming you're attending with general admin tickets, we'd suggest a slim chino pant or skinny jeans, and your favourite t-shirt or polo shirt. Make sure to wear a comfortable sneaker, that will keep you going all day.
Finally whichever way you're going, be sure to grab your yellow number 3 Renault cap.
