Whether or not you are a fashionista yourself, dressing up for derby often requires a certain sense of propriety and style. With all the heritage and panache that comes with the race day, the rules tend to be extremely strict, especially for members. Race day is not the time you should be messing around with suiting conventions. With the Signature Derby just around the corner, we need to ensure that you don’t end up feeling frumpish, and have come with a guide to help you don that debonair derby look.
Let's look at some ‘Dos and Don’ts’ for Men:
Always show a little shirt beneath your suit cuffs.
Wear a dress shirt with cuff links.
Add a buttonhole flower for each day.
Forget to consider matching your socks with your overall looks.
Fasten the bottom button on your jacket or waist coast.
Wear a rain jacket, but carry an umbrella if it rains.
Dos and Don’ts for women:
Classic coloured straw hat with flower or feather. Just make sure you coordinate your dress well.
Pearls and Polka dots.
Patterned dress, understated accessories and a pretty fascinator on the head.
Don't wear something so tight that it will make you look Barbie-ish.
Never wear hat and gloves, etc of the same shiny fabric.
Cowboy boots. Never.
