As a southern girl, there are certain traditions I would be remiss not to embrace — and participating in the Kentucky Derby is one of them. The 144-year-old horse racing event wears two hats: It’s a sporting event and a fashion event. From elegant to flamboyant, Derby attire can be just as much a spectacle as the race itself. As a fashion blogger, I dream of donning a big hat or fascinator at Churchill Downs, but for now I will enjoy this American tradition at local party right here in Tampa Bay. I’ve created a Derby wardrobe checklist video to help you get ready for festivities with peace of mind.
Style Tip: Check out my website Strut.Fashion and create your own derby outfit. I’ve selected great dresses, hats and fascinators for you to order with ease.
