The most popular event is The Kentucky Derby, which is held annually in Louisville, Kentucky. For those who are not familiar with what the Kentucky Derby is, it is one of the biggest horse races in the United States. This event is usually the first Saturday in May. There are other events in the area leading up to the Derby like the Kentucky Oaks, which is another horse race where everyone is required to incorporate pink in their outfit. The pink signifies breast cancer awareness and proceeds go to the Susan G. Komen foundation. There are thousands of people that come to the Kentucky Derby. There are also a lot of celebrities that attend the event. They even go as far as shutting down the whole town when the races start.
One of the most exciting things about Derby is the fashions that men and women wear to these events. It is encouraged that everyone is in “Sunday’s best” attire. There are many fun, spring pastel colors that are popular. Floral and paisley prints are also seen. Many women shop as early as February for their outfit. Women always start with the hat, first; then the dress, jewelry, and accessories. We actually offer hats at our Louisville, Kentucky store so here are a few hats that Windsor has to offer!
Remember, hat first then the outfit!
