Cargo Crew Blog | The Modern Uniform | Spring Accessories

The Spring Racing Carnival is around the corner and with it a race to curate the best in catering and hospitality. Naturally, staff uniforms are front and centre in this stylish affair, making August the perfect time to sharpen new or existing uniform pieces with fresh accessories that echo current style notes. We’ve rounded up the best Cargo Crew accessories fit for carnival, including 5 new spring accessories. See you at the finish line!

Step it up with a Customised Carnival Uniform

Australia’s biggest carnival event is no time to dither in last years’ look, or scrape through with a last minute uniform pulled together from bits and pieces. Instead, make 2016 the year uniforms steal the show from fashions on the field with a tailored look brought together in consultation with Cargo Crew’s team of uniform stylists!

Cargo Crew is the only uniform designer in Australia to offer a dedicated styling service. Just as we’ve done for Freedom Australia, Hoyts, and Claus Meyers’, Great Northern Food Hall in NYC, we can bring your brand to life through a customised uniform wardrobe, or help you style existing pieces into a bespoke look tailored for specific events.

Rise to the Occasion with Fresh Accessories

Cargo Crew is known for key design-led uniform pieces like aprons and shirts. But we’re equally passionate about our collection of charming accessories, which allow us to bring the latest styling trends to the Cargo Crew showroom, and on to you, our customers! Our collections spans accessories from head to toe, including neck or hair scarves, ties, bow ties, enamel pins, badges, apron straps, braces and rubber soled sneakers – perfect on the job!

Play with Pattern

The Cargo Crew tie and shirt collections make a beautiful duo, and an effortless way to update your event season uniform. Why not play with pattern to create an energetic event wardrobe that spells confidence and personality? For a classic contrast, we pair our Frankie Check Shirt with a simple City Tie in Black or White. We also reverse the concept with the White or Black Piper Shirt paired with the Max Check Bow Tie. Or step your Carnival pattern game up a notch with a Smith Oxford Shirt in Sky Blue and our stand out Pin Spot Bow Tie.


By choosing a contrasting colour and texture in your shirt, tie, or apron, you’ll instantly lift your event uniform while signalling confidence and originality. Our new Baby Blue and Pale Pink Ascot Bow Ties are made of a luxe linen blend and offer the perfect tonal and textural contrast against our cotton blend Navy and Sky Blue Smith Oxford Shirts or our Black & White Stripe Dixon Shirt, or Otto Bib Apron in Bluestone or Sulphur. Another approach to maximise your contrast game is to pair our Max Check Shirt with a Tan Leather Bow Tie – the epitome of the modern uniform. Our new spring accessories are dropping in soon – pre-order now!

Mix It Up with Coloured Apron Straps

What makes our Henry and Barkly Bib and Waist Aprons ideal for event uniforms? They both allow for interchangeable apron straps, opening each style up to mirror event themes, function palettes, or business branding at the flick of a strap!

Enter our Mix It Up Straps collection! It all starts with the base, either the Henry Bib or Waist Apron in 6 hues including navy, black, mocha and khaki, or the Barkly Bib Apron in indigo and black denim. From here, select a Mix It Up Strap in one of fifteen colours and patterns including herringbone and leopard print! From natural tones in tan, chocolate and black, to colours that pop like yellow, red and green, now your hospitality apron can reflect individual events with a quick change of your apron strap.
