Derby Dresses of the Day: Lust vs Must to Wear Anywhere!

Apr 27, 2013

I know I missed yesterday’s Derby dress of the day, so today I’ve got two!

I love cobalt blue and the color has been popping up a bunch the last couple of seasons. I think the color is so perfectly clean, cool, bold and fresh for Derby. Make it girly with a bright pink hat, go more subtle and subdued with a pale yellow or creamy white {floral} fascinator, you could go monochromatic for a modern look or do something bright and colorful with bright green, a neon or orange.

I had a reader ask me about the Milly number below but since I know that price point isn’t for everyone so when I found this more casual but equally gorgeous number, I thought it would make for a great Derby lust vs. must.
