I have a few friends who spend months strategizing their Kentucky Derby hat. Does this sound like you too? Well, after a crazy amount of days planning the chicest Derby hat, I’m assuming you procrastinated the ensemble planning. If you’re nodding “YES” or raising that guilty hand, don’t sweat it.  I’ve got you covered with 5 styles that’ll inspire your Kentucky Derby get-up!

From belted silhouettes to jumpsuits, enjoy the scroll below.

Belted Print Dress

Why I love it: This look is a lucky bet with polka dots or any soft patterns. The belt add-on helps pull whimsical prints in from ranging too far.


Wrap Dress

Why I love it: It’s flirty and fun – ingredients you’ll definitely need with a one-of-a-kind Derby hat.


Ruffle Embellished Dress

Why I love it: Celebrating the Kentucky Derby is a perfect reasoning for a ruffle rendezvous! For this occasion, ruffle embellishments stand out best with bold colors or patterns (like red or polka dots).


Sleek Jumpsuit

Why I love it: It’s a breath of fresh air and an effortless crowd pleaser. Opt for a wide-leg jumpsuit so you can smoothly glide among guests at your Derby party.


Off the Shoulder Maxi Florals

Why I love it: When two classics come to play (off the shoulder and maxi), a style statement is a definite. This look pairs well with any type of wide-brimmed Kentucky Derby hat – just make sure to coordinate the colors.



Twirl-Worthy Dress

Why I love it: Who wouldn’t want to twirl around when their horse pick is winning? Be prepared – wear a twirl-worthy dress to celebrate in style!
