Dressing Up for the Triple Crown

The chase for the Triple Crown begins this weekend with the annual running of the Kentucky Derby. Taking place at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky, the Derby is the most prestigious in the series, which also includes the Preakness in Baltimore, Maryland and the Belmont Stakes in Elmont, NY. But whether you are heading to one of these races yourself, or celebrating with a Mint Julep at a watch party in your own city, you’re going to want to dress to impress. Because even in these days of ultra casual dressing, tradition on race day reigns supreme and that means pulling out your fashionable best. Here are some outfit ideas to inspire you for this year’s Triple Crown and beyond.
