The Kentucky Derby isn’t all about the Mint Juleps and crazy horse names. My favorite part of watching the Derby is seeing all the beautiful spring dresses paired with the most outrageous hats and fascinators! Going to Churchill Downs, to see the race live and enjoy all the fun activities, is definitely on my bucket list. For now, I’ll have to settle on enjoying the race from NYC. Here are the places to find the perfect outfit for the Kentucky Derby.

Vineyard Vines Spring Outfits

As the Official Style of the Kentucky Derby, you absolutely cannot go wrong with one of these dresses from Vineyard Vines. The silk detail in the Racing Horse Sash Dress is spot-on for the event and the colors and fabric of the Multi-Stripe Seersucker Dress can’t be beat.

It was hard narrowing down my top picks from ASOS- there were too many floral and pastel dresses to choose from! (Like that could be such a thing.)

GAP:

I’m a sucker for the color yellow. It instantly puts me in a good mood and you will definitely stand out in a sea of brights and patterns with this sunny hue!

No Spring outfit for the Kentucky Derby is complete without the perfect hat! Here are my top three favorites that will compliment any dress:

 

MONOGRAMMED FLOPPY SUMMER HAT FROM ETSY:

Super cute bright colors AND a monogram? I would wear this for the Derby and all spring and summer long.
