Get your Julep cup and wide brimmed Hat out of the closet – the Most Exciting 2 Minutes in Sports is almost here!
For the prep-set, the beginning of May means warmer weather, opening the summer house, and of course, the Kentucky Derby! One day a year, it is perfectly acceptable to wear loads of seersucker, pastels, and big hats as we all become race horse/jockey aficionados and cheer for the top pick.
Our Race Horse, Lucky Mint Julep, Jockey Silks embroideries will have you styling as you belt out “My Old Kentucky Home” with pride and vigor, even if you have never stepped foot in the state. The kick off to the Triple Crown affords us a day drinking event made for prepsters. We hope Castaway will be a staple of your Derby Day!
Here are our Top 5 Derby Party Must Haves:
- Race Horse embroidered Pants. It goes without saying that we encourage embroidered pants for EVERY themed occasion, but our Race Horse embroidery takes the cake.
- Mint Juleps. Bourbon, Mint leaves, Sugar Syrup. Meet us at the bar with your frosted silver cup to indulge in the official cocktail of the Race. Preps never miss an occasion to day drink, especially a signature cocktail!
- Lucky Mint Julep Ali Skirts. Ladies! Fashion is king on Derby Day. Out-do your girlfriends with our lucky horseshoe and mint julep embroidered skirt. Make the Run For the Roses your fashion event of the spring! Or opt for a more casual watching experience with a pop of Pink Race Horse Short.
- Wide Brimmed Hats. Whether you are in the owner’s box at Churchill Downs, or an apartment in Boston, the must-have accessory of the day is a fabulous chapeau – Guys you too! Bright colors, feathers, and of course bows are all welcome.
- Spring Palm green Blazer w/Race Horse embroidery. Paired with Liberty Harbor Pants or a white jean, you will look the part of a gentrified Louisville native. Although the drink of the day is the Mint Julep, we won’t hold it against you to sneak in a martini!
