COLOUR stole the show at this year's fashions in the field at the Murwillumbah Races.

Most women stepped away from traditional black and sported everything from neon to pastels.

The Tweed City Shopping Centre sponsored fashions had more than 200 people line the race course showing off their frocks and suits.

The most fashionable woman Prue Montgomery said she did not expect to take out the No.1 spot.

She wore a royal blue and white slim fit dress matched with a pink belt and hat with black heels.

"I actually didn't think mixing the colours would go together," she said.

"But it did."

The 23-year-old Kingscliff fashionista said her outfit had "a bit of an eclectic pop."

Second place went to Chantal Turro Martinez and third to Rebecca Woods.

The best dressed male, Eric Turro, showed off in a white suit compete with a top hat, pipe and cane.

Best dressed couple Currumbin pair Daniel and Renarta Azzopardi chose to mix classic black and gold with splashes of teal.

"Teal is a nice fresh colour," Mrs Azzopardi said.

"It's a very hard colour to find, especially the fascinators."

Mrs Azzopardi actually wanted to sport pink but Mr Azzopardi was unconvinced.

The best dressed child went to Beau Gustafson.

The tiny tot showed everyone how to wear a tuxedo t-shirt in style at just eight months old.

Tweed City marketing manager Magan Connellan said it was hard work picking the winners.

"Today was a lot of fun," she said.

"There was so much colour,

"Headwear has really been an important part."

Judges for the event were former mayor Lyn Beck, Tweed City centre manager Kathryn Mills and Miss Connellan.
