The Kentucky Derby is the Southern equivalent of the Met Gala in terms of being the place to see and be seen. Everyone breaks out their best outfits for the Derby, but to really wow the crowds, you have to know the rules for creating a killer ensemble. Here are a few things to consider when putting together your Derby best for 2019. MATCHING HATS AND DRESSES Some people will tell you that you should choose your Derby hat based on the dress you plan to wear. Others will say that the hat should inform the rest of your outfit. Honestly, either way can work. What’s most important is understanding how the two go together. If you’re going for a massive, exaggerated hat that’s designed to garner most of the attention, it’s probably best paired with an elegant, understated dress. These two outfit essentials shouldn’t feel like they’re competing against one another. THE IMPORTANCE OF EXTRA SHOES I totally get that you want to wear that perfect heel to match your outfit and up the glamour factor, but if you’ve ever been to a muddy Derby, you know how quickly those super cute shoes can become a royal pain in the butt. It’s a great idea to pack along an extra pair of flats just in case the weather turns sour. If you don’t need ‘em, great, but if you do, you’ll be very thankful you brought some along. AN APPROPRIATE DERBY SUIT Gentleman attending the Derby may not usually go all-out the way the ladies do, but it’s a great occasion to dress your dapper best. While seersucker is a classic choice, you can also combine a more understated blazer with some pastel-toned pants for a striking look. Men’s headwear is also a growing trend at the Derby, with many fellows looking back to the 1920s for inspiration. Just make sure you tie that tie correctly. PREPARATION IS ALWAYS STYLISH Don’t forget the little things that make your day at the Derby more pleasant. Bring along sunglasses, sunscreen, a rain poncho, and other essentials just in case you need them. Believe me, having to pay Churchill Downs prices for some sunglasses is nobody’s idea of a good time.
