The Kentucky Derby is a beautiful sporting event known for its iconic moments, roses, mint juleps, and photo finishes. It is a place not only to see and be seen, but also to make a splash.
When I think of the Derby, I immediately think of hats and vintage Cartier cigar cutters; I think of tradition, which makes me think “old.” While I am a firm believer in the saying, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it," I believe that everyone attending the Derby should shake things up, have fun, and wear what they love, the same mantras we should live by in our everyday lives.
With that said, my fashion must-haves for the Kentucky Derby nod to tradition, but also have bold touches that create memorable moments and celebrate the season and Southern hospitality. Bring on the fried green tomatoes.
