We’re heading to the races this spring for a day of drinking mint juleps, watching horses and more importantly, checking out all the lovely hats the women will be wearing. In Virginia, the annual Gold Cup Steeplechase is a big draw for residents in the District. The big spenders head to Kentucky for the Kentucky Derby. Regardless of where you go to watch the steeplechase, looking your best is a must. Finding the perfect outfit can sometimes be as daunting as picking the right hat to compliment.
We’ve put together ten perfect outfits from which you can draw inspiration for your perfect Gold Cup or Kentucky Derby ensemble. There are several elements for each outfit, including something colorful, a comfortable shoe, a bag you can carry all day long, a hat or fascinator and sunglasses. Don’t forget your sunscreen and make sure to have fun.
