Held on the 1st weekend in May, the Kentucky Derby is quoted as "the 2 most exciting minutes in sport". Across all America (not only in Louisville), people celebrate the race, attending Parties, dressed in their best Spring fashion and Derby Hats. Planning your outfit in advance is super fun, whether you're going to Churchill Downs, or your local Street Party. Your Derby outfit can be fun and full of character, less matchy matchy than a Mother of the Bride or wedding guest outfit would be. Don’t be afraid to get creative with your color accents, and build a punchy outfit you wouldn’t normally wear for a formal event.
Over 300,00 people attend Royal Ascot each year making it Europe's best attended race meeting. If the actual races don't grab your attention, the fashion sure does. Royal Ascot is an event on most peoples bucket list for many reasons.
More press covers the fashion during Royal Ascot than the races themselves. Some dress well, others not so well, and some just plain ridiculous, and the press finds them all. If you're looking to dress the part for Royal Ascot, then read my post with lots of ideas.
If you're attending a winter wedding, the number of colour combinations are more than you thought. Don’t be restricted to dark neutrals and simple shapes. Flatter the bride and groom, showing them you’ve been creative with your efforts for their big day. Experiment with new shapes and wintry colours, and winter luxury textured fabrics.
