What To Wear to the Kentucky Derby (or a Derby Party)

There are definitely rites of spring and the Kentucky Derby is tops on the list!  Tradition abounds at the Derby…where else do you “dress” for a horse race?  The fashion, the mint juleps, the hats…oh, those hats!  The Derby has its own particular culture and although we are not in Kentucky the DMV has plenty of Derby parties to attend.  Wear the traditional dress or the not-so-traditional romper…pick the style best for you as the winning ticket to watch the excitement of the horses run for the roses!
