Anyone watch the Kentucky Derby? Was that not unbelievable? Oh and the race was pretty amazing too – HAH! In all seriousness though, it is horse racing season… And that means all the pretty things – dresses, hats, fascinators, shoes, and otherwise. Steeplechase is coming up this weekend in Nashville, followed by The Preakness and The Belmont… Which means many of our readers are either attending a race in person, or attending a watch party. Keep reading if you are wondering what to wear in Nashville for Steeplechase!
What To Wear In Nashville For Steeplechase
So feminine, so classic, so FUN! There is nothing quite like getting all dressed up with a pretty dress and hat, are we right ladies? We had so much fun putting together these looks…. It was honestly hard to stop at three. Keep in mind, the weather is looking to be hot and sunny this Saturday here in Nashville for Steeplechase. So, we have geared our looks towards that weather forecast. That said, you can layer a dressier lightweight spring jacket or wrap over any of these looks if it’s a chiller day.
This Steeplechase look is geared towards those who watch with groups that are more understated or casual. We love the idea of a sweet sundress, low heeled sandals, and traditional sun hat. We have recently discovered the lower heel version of the dressy slide sandal we featured in our Beach Vacation and Spring Capsules… They are every bit as good looking as the higher heeled ones if you are preferring a lower heel. Especially given the fact that horse races tend to be long days with lots of standing or walking around the track!
A Fun Pair Of Pants
You do not have to wear a dress to look fabulous for Steeplechase! You will see almost everything at Steeplechase, including white denim… Though you might want to make sure they aren’t distressed or ripped. Katey chose this pair of paperbag waist pants as her piece of the week last week. They would be a perfect pant option for this type of event. And a super fun way to wear them? With a color blocked look! You ladies know by now that color blocking is quite the trend this spring and going into summer. We have several favorite color combinations for this trend – and orange and pink are definitely at the top of the list. And no better place to wear bold and bright pinks and oranges than at Steeplechase!
What To Wear To Elevate Your Look For Steeplechase
If you want to do an elevated look but stay cool and comfortable, a dress like this stunning midi dress is a great choice. We love the idea of pairing it with some hot pink, red, royal blue, or even bright yellow heels. Of course, if you want to just let the dress do the talking, a pair of heeled sandals with transparent straps would be really fabulous with this dress as well!
