Derby Day Shopping Guide

Derby Day is upon us so today I am sharing a shopping and trend guide for the event. I find this the most challenging day by far. Black and white is just never something that I’ll gravitate towards for a fear that I’ll look like a big old yawn. But, it’s tradition and one that should be respected. So, the way to combat black and white boredom is to look for some interesting shapes. I have chosen a collection of dresses that are all appealing to the creative eye with interesting details. Enjoy!


1) Asos City Maxi Tea Dress In Polka Dot Print • Asos • $60

2) Asos Embroidered Side Cut Out Maxi Dress • Asos • $168

3) Asos Premium Satin Pleat Detail Dress With Detachable Bralet • Asos • $150

4) Asos Maxi Square Neck Halter Bodycon Dress • Asos • $40

5) Asos Cold Shoulder Floral Embellished Tulle Maxi Dress • Asos • $59.50

6) Asos Premium Midi Dress With Contrast Pleat Panel • Asos • $117

7) Asos Wrap Cotton Midi Dress With D-Ring Detail • Asos • $56

Next up we have shoes. For the black shoe pairing I have chosen two pairs, again following the same rule of the dresses, that have intricate detailing. The other option on Derby day is to add a pop of leopard into your outfit. This is certainly the option that I would gravitate towards. You’re pushing the boundaries without stepping outside of the traditional colour rules. How naughty…
