Derby Style: For the Fillies


When we think warm weather in Saratoga Springs, we think Lilly Pulitzer. After all, Lilly herself used to come up here and watch the races in the summer! This season as always there are oodles of Lilly choices perfect for Derby Day, a little bit fun, a lot of pep, and 100% prep. We've paired all this lovely Lilly with the chicest sun hat we've seen this year so far from Bungalow LA. Wear it for the Derby and keep wearing it all summer long. Grab some local Lilly at The Pink Paddock on Broadway.

Vineyard Vines always has a place in style for Derby Day, and we are particularly loving their Derby Day accessories this year.

The sweetest seersucker bow gives this simply pretty hat the prettiest touch. Want to go fascinator? We are in love with this pink ribbon one, just fun enough without being over the top.

Derby Day is the unofficial start to seersucker weather, and if you want to give a nod to sweet southern style this race day look at these absolutely sweet seersucker dresses from Lauren James. The oversized bow details add that little bit of flair you need for drinking juleps and cheering on ponies in the Racing Hall of Fame.
