Spiral Stakes calls for a Trumpet Hem at Turfway Park
Flirt and Flounce Your Way through the Spiral Stakes in a Trumpet Hem: The Spiral Stakes is an American thoroughbred horse race for 3-year-olds that takes place at Turfway Park in Florence, Kentucky. The Spiral Stakes and Bourbonette Oaks are scheduled this year on Saturday, March 22, 2014. Although the race isn’t held at Churchill Downs, it is still every bit as classic so make sure to put your best fashion foot forward at the 2014 Spiral Stakes.
This season the trumpet hem was everywhere and it will continue to be a fashion staple into the rest of Spring and Summer. It is the perfect mix of flirtiness, flounce, and classic femininity. Choose a trumpet hem skirt or a trumpet hem dress for the 2014 Spiral Stakes. The great thing about this trend is that it really flatters a woman’s body, highlighting curves and creating the illusion of a small waist. The trumpet hem is like a pencil skirt, except that it flares out at the bottom. For girls with long legs, pick a trumpet hem that goes just below the knee or if you are more petite, try a trumpet hem in a mini option.
My favorite fashion picks for the 2014 Spiral Stakes are the black and white ethnic print trumpet skirt from Anthropologie paired with a black top or perhaps a bright yellow for a pop of color that really stands out. For the petite girl try the orange trumpet hem mini skirt from Modcloth. For a head to toe look, try the trumpet hem dress from Banana Republic.
Avoid a chunky shoe with the trumpet look, which will make your calves look gangly and avoid flats, which can make your calves look to thick, instead pick a slim heeled shoe like the heeled Steve Madden sandal.
Pair your trumpet hem with a petite and slim fascinator for the Spiral Stakes. Avoid a wide brim fascinator, which will take away from the shape of the trumpet hem by making you look squished between the wide lines of the hat and the hem of the skirt. My fascinator pick for the 2014 Spiral Stakes is Coco Knot found at Fashion at the Races.
