What to Wear for The Kentucky Derby

Happy May! Who can even believe it’s already May? We certainly can’t.

With the beginning of May comes one of our all time favorite events, The Kentucky Derby.

Whether you are attending the Derby or enjoying it by celebrating at a friend’s party, you’ll want to dress the part.

In terms of what one wears to The Kentucky Derby (or to a Derby party), think feminine dresses, spring frocks, and beautiful colors.

Below you’ll see we pulled together a dose of fashion inspiration for the Derby along with the bags that perfectly complement each look. So, keep on scrolling!
