How lucky you are to be going to the Kentucky Derby. An essential is a statement hat so you are good to go. Women attending the Kentucky Derby favor colorful summer dresses. However you should always wear outfits that flatter you. If you look better in pants they are very appropriate and stylish also. The average weather in Louisville is in the low 70’s in May. Check the weather forecast and dress accordingly. Wear shoes that you can stand and walk in and don’t forget the sunscreen.
Pulling Off the Hat Trend
Pulling off the hat trend has to do with color, proportion, your hair style and confidence. The color of hat you wear should flatter your skintone (warm or cool) color. Choose hat colors that work with most of your wardrobe. Proportion has to do with the size of the hat and/or brim. Tall women can pull off larger size hats and hats with larger brims but shorter females are best to go with smaller size hats and no more than a 3 inch brim.
