A fabulous hat is always a must at the Kentucky Derby, from elegant to over the top. Try a bold red colored hat with a wide brim to show your flair.

Think like Princess Kate try a fascinator with a feminine lace dress.
For an event like the Derby a dress is almost as essential as the hat. This season is all about midi lengths, which is a perfectly flattering style.
If you do happen to keep the hat neutral, add a little flavor with a floral print dress, or pastel gingham.
We really can't forget about the shoes, stash the platforms and go for the lady-like pointy toe and skinny high heel. Maybe even a red sole if you dare.
Jewels are the finishing touch, since the hat is the center piece keep it simple. Try studs that sparkle, a stunning emerald cocktail ring or a delicate set of bracelets.
Pearls are a classic accessory think southern belle and wear them with a minty green top and matching skirt for a monochromatic look.

Sunglasses are dramatic and key for a day at the races, go for the glamour in an oversized style.
