I went to school in the South, so the Kentucky Derby (and all other events where one gets to dress up to drink in the sun all day) holds a special place in my heart. Southern or not, The Derby’s a perfect excuse to make yourself a mint julep, grab your girlfriends, and pretend to understand horse races while really knowing…you’re just in it for the sundresses, (those hats!) and the bourbon.


Have a Derby party to attend? Check out our to slideshow for outfit ideas that include patterned sundresses, huge floppy hats, and wedges–because you’ll probably forget if Seabiscuit came in second or third, but if you make the mistake of wearing uncomfortable shoes for a day of Derby-style libations, you’ll never forgive yourself.

Don’t see anything you love? Shop our guide to floral dresses, summer dresses and skirts here, and most importantly–start practicing your “ya”ll”s (Try “Don’t ya’ll look cute?” and/or “Will ya’ll pass me another beer?”)
