MIXING up the traditional suit is a fresh take on racewear for men this Melbourne Cup Carnival.

The carnival officially launched at Flemington Racecourse on Monday. More than 330,000 racegoers are expected to attend the four days, which begin with Derby Day on Saturday.

Menswear designer Jeff Banks will be the master of ceremonies for the Myer Fashions on the Field competition.

He encourages men to break away from strict suits and try a jacket and trousers that roughly go together, but don't exactly match, perhaps in different checks.

"It doesn't have to be a suit anymore, it can be a mixture of the two," Banks told AAP.

"You don't have to have everything co-ordinated but it's a difficult one to pull off and you've got to get it absolutely right otherwise it can look like a dog's dinner."

Banks says ties are getting wider and more flamboyant, while having shoes in pristine condition is always in style.

"Men that have great shoes — women tend to focus on that," he said. "I don't know why but I think that maybe it's an indication that they're well heeled and they've got some money and maybe that's the guy you should go after."

Banks said men should avoid wearing a hat and visit the hairdresser instead.

"There are very few men these days that can carry off a hat and what tends to happen is they start off looking fine and then gradually, after they have had a few drinks, the hat goes on the back of the head and they kind of look like bookies' runners. So for me I avoid it, I think a great haircut is better than a good hat.

"And gentlemen, please avoid white shoes."

Myer Fashions on the Field ambassador Rebeccah Panozza said for women, it's important to select a dress that flatters your figure so you feel comfortable.

She said monochrome would be big, as well as structured headwear and fun pieces like cats ears on headbands and crowns.

"They add a little bit of funk to a really feminine dress," Panozza said.

Milliner Natalie Bikicki said metal ears on headbands were on trend and easy to wear with your hair down.

"It's a little bit of a variation compared to the regular lace pieces that most people are donning right now," she said.

She said the added the advantage with headpieces is even if you wear them the 'wrong' way you can still look chic.

"I've had photographs of my beautiful clients and they send it to me and I'm like 'do I tell them you're wearing it back-to-front?'," she said. "At this point, no. It's too late and they're happy so I'm happy."
