The Kentucky Derby is one of the most fashionable events to attend in the spring. Women pull out all the stops and go for elegant outfits and spectacular hats decorated with flowers, bows, ribbons, feathers, etc . A pastel dress or suit or bold separates with a large brimmed hat is the way to go. If you are short a fascinator will be more flattering. With a statement hat or fascinator the focus will be on your face. If you will be doing a lot of walking around Churchill Downs, lower heels,wedges or low heel sandals will be the most comfortable. Your handbag should be large enough to carry your accessories (makeup, a bottle of water, your program, sunglasses, sunscreen, and a poncho in case of a shower). Express your creativity and individuality you’ll see everything. Enjoy!
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.
The Fabulous Headpiece – One of a Kind Style
The fashion statement is the fabulous headpiece. We typically see them at weddings or costume parties and have definitely seen Lady Gaga sport some wildly delicious headwear, but what about the everyday glam queen that just wants a little edge in her look? You know not too much but not too little. A headpiece can transform not only your outfit but your outlook as well. They can be classy, demure, chic, wild and naturalistic. Headpieces are a trend to follow!
