We Like Big Hats and We Cannot Lie

Looking for something smashing to wear to the horse racing hat wearing event of the season? (Racetrack, runway: potato, po-tah-toe). Embrace your inner Southern belle and consider closeting one of these show-stealing styles.

Not planning to head to Louisville for the big weekend? We recommend throwing a Kentucky Derby party at home, complete with fabulous frippery and mint juleps aplenty.

The Derby is Kentucky’s see and be seen event of the year. To ensure the latter, opt for punchy, eye-catching brights, like one of these looks from Taylor Dresses. Stripe-y texture and alternating mesh panels add interest and a skinny belt pulls the look together.

Taylor Dresses Printed Sleeveless Dress with Side Panels

This of-the-moment print is a ultra-cool alternative to classic polka dots; a Kentucky Derby style staple. Black detailing elongates while figure-flattering colorblock panels create a killer hourglass shape.  A fab Kate Middleton-inspired fascinator will take this look to the next level.

London Times Sleeveless V-Neck Fit and Flare Dress 

You can never go wrong with a flirty floral on Derby Day and we’re loving this sweet print from London Times. Nude accessories—heels or a clutch—perfectly complement the dress’ khaki undertones and keep the look daytime-appropriate.

London Times Sleeveless Printed Blouson Dress

We love a cute blouson cut in a fun, splashy print, and this dress is no exception.  Pair with a long knotted pearl necklace for added class, or a vibrant carryall for a little extra panache.
