We've Got You Covered: What to Wear to the Kentucky Derby
If you're heading to the Kentucky Derby this year, the question of what to wear is probably at the forefront of your mind.
- No one does boho like Rachel Zoe, and we think this maxi dress look is bananas. Go heavy on the jewelry with a statement necklace and chunky cuff, but don't forget the most important part of the outfit - a pair of '70s-inspired shades.
- Kim Kardashian definitely had the right idea with this all chic, monochromatic look. Pair wide leg linen pants with an airy blouse, top with a floppy white hat, and finish with a beaded clutch for texture. We suggest going for a more vibrant clutch to add a pop of color.
- There's never a shortage of floral sundresses at the Derby, which makes this maxi skirt option even cooler. Pair with a lightweight crew-neck sweater and, of course, a hat, for a casual glam look like Beyonce's.
A quick Google search of previous styles seen at the annual horse race yields a few unsavory snapshots like Heidi Montag in a big ol' pink sun hat. Uh...not quite the look we had in mind.
Luckily, some of our favorite stylish celebs easily served as the perfect style inspiration for this year's Derby. Beyonce, Kim Kardashian, and star stylist and designer Rachel Zoe all prove that you can do the Derby without the same floral sundress and ginormous hat everyone else will be wearing.
