Layer Up Your Look at the 2014 Robert B. Lewis Stakes
Layer Up Your Look at the 2014 Robert B. Lewis Stakes: The Robert B. Lewis Stakes is race 4 at Santa Anita Park in sunny California and it is set to take place on February 8, 2014. This 1 1/16 length mile Grade 2 race for 3-year-olds carries a $200,000 purse and will prove to be a day to remember as it is on the path to the Kentucky Derby. So make sure your style stands out as something to remember too!
The predicted weather for the 2014 Robert B. Lewis Stakes is 65 degrees with sunshine. While it is sunny, it might still be a little bit chilly, so layering is key. Make your look fashion forward and memorable with a statement cardigan. Usually cardigans are not seen as a standout item, but lately, the basic staple has proven to be not only convenient for layering, but also a fashion standout. Just make sure to pick a cardigan that complements your dress or skirt and has some sort of intricate detailing to make it standout at Santa Anita Park.
Look to First Lady Obama for inspiration; she is the queen of making a cardigan look polished and posh. Just make sure that to keep your look from reading too casual to pick a cardigan that hits at or above your waist. You don’t want a long cardigan, while they can be sheik in their own right, they read a little too casual for a race day look.
I love the bow detail of the black cardigan from Anthropologie pictured below for the Robert B. Lewis Stakes. It gives a feminine whimsical look to an outfit. Pairing it with a more graphic patterned dress, as it is pictured with is a great idea for styling because the graphic print keeps the look from going over girly with the bow detail on the cardigan.
For an edgy girl pair the look with a bootie and for the more classic glamorous girl try a classic black pump. Top it off with a black fascinator as to not compete with the graphic dress and bow detail of the cardigan and you will be set.
If you want to go in a more vintage lady like direction then try the cardigan shown below from Modcloth or for a glam touch, it is still winter so you can totally still wear a great Banana Republic cardigan with a fur accent. Don’t forget that you can also always go with a classic cashmere cardigan in a rich color, which always reads as polished and luxe. If you want to replicate the fun look pictured above, try the Honeycomb, I’m Home cardigan! Whatever statement cardigan you choose, you will be ready for race day!
