In Search Of: A Kentucky Derby Dress

In Search Of: A Kentucky Derby Dress

Welcome to another edition of “In Search Of” – a new style series where I help you shop for special event outfits or specific pieces you’re looking to add to your closet. My friend is hosting a Kentucky Derby Party in May, and I’m so excited to attend! She’s looking for a little bit of dress inspiration for the occasion, and since I immediately began hunting online for my own dress right after I received her invitation, this was an easy collection of options to put together for her! All of these dresses would also look great for a bridal shower, daytime wedding, or Easter brunch, so if you don’t have a Derby Party to attend, keep these choices in mind for other upcoming events on your spring or summer calendar. Simply click on the links below for specific dress details. Happy Shopping!

Two: Scalloped Hem Floral Print Dress

Three: Floral Keyhole Fit and Flare Dress

Four: Print Stretch Fit and Flare Dress

Five: Floral Printed Fit and Flare Dress

Six: Faux-Wrap Fit and Flare Dress

Seven: Medallion Lace Fit and Flare Dress

Eight: Floral Sheath Dress

Of course, no Kentucky Derby look is complete without a coordinating hat! As a general rule, you can get away with something a little more daring in the hat department if it doesn’t look like the dress is competing with it, and bold, patterned dresses will pair best with a more modest style of hat or fascinator. Keep jewelry and shoes on the simple side, since there will already be a lot going on with the outfit as a whole. Most of all, have fun letting your inner Southern Belle come out and play for awhile!
