Derby Dress of the Day: For The Paddock

Apr 10, 2013

Next up on the Derby Dress of the Day, a fun little shift to wear to the paddock. This navy cut-out dress would work for lots of areas but here’s why I think it’s perfect for the paddock. In the paddock, there’s no place to sit (unless you get there at like 6 am) so you’re going to be carrying your purse, a drink, your betting tickets and program. When you’ve got all that stuff in your hands, the last thing you want to worry about is pulling up a strapless dress or messing with thin straps falling down.

And since you’re going to be on your feet all day, you’re going to want to wear flats or wedges. These have a little sliver of a wedge with the gold details that stand out. Add to that a statement necklace that compliments your hat. And speaking of hats, you’ll be free to go bold and colorful against the neutral navy.

    That cut out dress is fantastic! It would look great with those shoes and that beautiful necklace. The only thing I would add is a cute and small crossbody for the exact reasons you listed – lots to hold/carry!
