Kentucky Derby Travel Tips; What to Wear Around Town in Louisville: When considering what to pack for your visit to Louisville, KY for the 2014 Kentucky Derby, just remember that in the south, ladies usually look relaxed but still put together. So even when going casual, you will want to look polished.

Don’t pay extra baggage fees! Pack the essentials for your trip to the Kentucky Derby and Louisville, Kentucky with three must-have garments.

An easy way to look casual and polished is to pack easy and simple dresses in bright colors or classic cuts, skinny jeans, and great fitted blazers for your trip to Louisville. You can mix and match what you have out of these three basic staples and get a look that will read as casual and yet put together so that you won’t have to worry about packing too many separates. Pair these items with a sweet ballet flat or a great gladiator sandal.

For accessories, a true southern woman always has the perfect strand of pearls or great costume jewelry pieces. This doesn’t mean that you have to look like Queen Elizabeth; however, there are much more modern versions of pearls and costume jewelry these days that will keep you from looking dated. For your pearls try a single layer of long strands or pearls that have been paired with metal hardware for an updated look. For costume jewelry mix in bold color with sparkle and you can throw it over any of your clothing items to add some polish and flash to your look. Try something that brings attention to your face like statement earrings or a necklace. These items were once reserved for night, but these days they easily translate into daytime looks.

Check out Victoria Beckham, Kate Middleton, and these celebs who keep their look polished at all times for inspiration.
