Preakness is less than a week away and come next Saturday the Party in the Infield will be shown also in the fashion on the day.
Make sure you’ve got your outfit together for this fun in the sun (hopefully) day! Do you remember the Triple Crown Trends?? Preakness is all about the Infield and the party that it brings, so this day isn’t about florals, southern belles, or mint juleps, this day is about ‘Gettin your ‘Preak’ on!’
We are looking for bold prints, patterns, and modern textures. Polka Dot, Aztec, stripes, and colors galore. Feel free to pair up to contradicting patterns, polka dot top, and striped skirt etc. Have fun with Maryland colors: Red, Black, White, and Yellow…very Mod style! You can absolutely incorporate more black into your outfit (compared to the Kentucky Derby) but make sure its balanced with other colors, and not just white, leave that for the Belmont Stakes!
The Black Eyed Susan is the flower of the day, a yellow petal with a black center…so of course you can pick black and yellow for your outfit colors! Black Eyed Susan Day is dedicated to breast cancer survivors with a portion of the profits benefitting Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Although the Kentucky Oaks Day is dedicated to the color pink, Black Eyed Susan Day does a bit of the same so feel free to incorporate a little bit of pink into your outfit but don’t go all out in pink like you did for Oaks. If you want to go all out in a color…YELLOW is the color to do so! Check out this outfit for inspiration:
Little bit of yellow, little bit of black, little bit of pink….PERFECT outfit for Black Eyed Susan Day!
Heading into the big day, the second leg of the Triple Crown, Preakness Stakes day, the Infield festivities and action only get bigger and you know that means we all have to step up our fashion game too. Again for this fantastic day you want bright fun colours, fun patterns and feel free to mix and NOT MATCH!
Now, when we say ‘NOT MATCH’, we want you to throw some caution to the wind and pair up patterns and styles that may not normally be considered best friends. Throw together stripes and polka dots, pair up a striking pattern with a single block downstairs…oh, and whatever you do, don’t forget your hat which is always necessary for race days!
All of these millinery (hats/fascinators) pieces and more can be found at the Fashion at the Races website.
