The Kentucky Derby is this weekend; two days of sipping on mint juleps, style, and good old fashioned fun. A place where what the men are wearing is just as important as what the women are. Here are our recommendations for what you should be rocking to the races.
For the jacket, either go classic or bold. A chalk stripe, windowpane or seersucker will not only look cool, but keep you cool in the summer heat. In addition, now is the best time to go for the double breasted jacket, for an elegant finished look.
Pair your suitor blazer with a crisp linen or cotton button down. If you choose a bold jacket, keep it simple with a white or light blue linen shirt. If you are feeling more daring, you can’t go wrong with a classic gingham or striped pattern. Adding a custom monogram to your mid-section or cuffs adds that final touch.
Finally, complete the look with colorful and preppy accessories, like a fun pocket square or pastel tie to complete the theme.
