A Day at the Races!

We have entered the Year of the Horse, and we are pleased as punch about it! We see the horse as a positive symbol for the road ahead: the noble creature inspires us to leap higher, go stronger and love deeper…and what better way to honor the mascot of our new year than to wear an outfit inspired by the grace and glory that the creature evokes…

…And so is born this look, which we call “A Day at the Races”: It is an equestrian chic take on preppy, sporty elegance. The best possible way to transition into the warm months ahead is with the grace and ease of this ensemble! It is bold, beautiful, and sweet as colored sugar:

What really gives this look its oomph is its balance: First we have the cleverness of a ribboned hat and handsome clutch wallet, which go perfectly with the sophisticated (and so of-the-moment) geometrically enticing Fabric Mix Knee Length Skirt. It’s got fabulous lace panels that give the illusion of having nothing on at all — in the BEST possible way. Then there’s the killer triangular patterned Halter Topnews flash, they’re back — and shoulders everywhere are CHEERING! Unveil them from beneath the exquisite 3/4 Sleeve Jacket which we’ve been swooning over all by itself, too…the shocks of rainbow and gold that make up its stripes are psychedelic up close — pretty and nuanced from a distance.

Every element mixes naturally with the creamy pastel color scheme, which mixes soft neutrals with light floral hues, all coming together to give the look a sporty and smart personality that will look perfect budding among the first flowers of spring. For Hollywood inspiration, just think of Julia Roberts at the races in Pretty Woman, mixed with Heathers having a croquet match… just be sure to understand this look with less bulbous shoulder pads and a totally advanced color story.

Perfect for a day at the tracks, or wherever else your sweet Vinny adorned feet take you! Wear this look with a mint julep in hand and know this outfit is your best bet — a true blue ribbon!
