Derby Dress of the Day: For the Paddock

Apr 15, 2014

Only 19 days til Derby! So crazy.

Today the Shopbop Friends & Family sale started. This is especially good timing for anyone still looking for a Derby dress since all their full-price dresses (and all other goodies) are 25% off. So if you’ve had your eye on something, it’s time to take the plunge.

I’ve talked before about some pointers for picking out a dress if you’re going to be in the Paddock or anywhere else where you won’t have a seat the entire day. But just as a reminder, I suggest picking a dress you won’t have to adjust every few minutes so steer clear of strapless numbers. The options below are great because you’ll look totally chic and put together but comfortable. Also, the yellow one in the middle (my fav) has pockets. Pockets are key for Derby cause you can put your race tickets and cash or your cell phone in them.

And since you’ll be on your feet most of the day – pick wedges or a pretty pair of espadrilles (the pair below are under $50 + 25% off today). Happy Shopping!
