Go Bright and Bold for Smarty Jones at Oaklawn

Smarty Jones Fashion 2014

A bright yellow dress paired with a blue stiletto and coat is a great option to be bright and beautiful at the Smarty Jones Stakes at Oaklawn on Monday, January 20, 2014.

People can often start feeling drab as winter sets it, so at the Smarty Jones Kentucky Derby prep race at Oaklawn Park, liven things up with bright colors. Just because it might be grey outside doesn’t mean your race day outfit has to be grey. Make your race day outfit just as exciting as the Smarty Jones Race itself.

Think bright pinks, blues, yellows, greens, reds, and purples for the 2014 Smarty Jones at Oaklawn. Sometimes bright colors can intimidate people, but they are really easy to wear, especially at the horse track. If you are easily cold and think that you’ll be wearing a coat on race day, try a bright blue coat from Banana Republic wrapped around your race day outfit. It will be sure to perk things up. Or try a sunny bright yellow dress from Modcloth to bring a little sunshine into a winter day and shine above the crowd. You could also try a fun and flirty striped dress in red and pink similar to the one worn by Taylor Swift pictured below.

You can also have a lot of fun with bright accessories like shoes and purses. The red patent Elizabeth and James pumps or the blue stilettos add oomph to any outfit, and the bright green Michael Kors will make your outfit pop.

The point of this trend is to just have fun and go a little wild with color. Feel free to do the same with your fascinator too. A bright lime green fascinator brings a warm, lively, and fun touch to any race day look.

Go with bright colors and the 2014 Smarty Jones first place winner won’t be the only thing that stands out at Oaklawn Park!

The Smarty Jones is set for 4:38 PM CDT at Oaklawn in Hot Springs, Arkansas on Monday, January 20, 2014.
