Go Pink at the 2014 Black Eyed Susan Stakes
Go Pink at the 2014 Black Eyed Susan Stakes: The Black Eyed Susan Stakes is an important event in race season, so you will want to look your best. The Black Eyed Susan is known as the “middle jewel” of the Triple Crown for fillies and this year the big race for the gals takes place on Friday, May 16, 2014 at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, Maryland just one day before the 90thth Running of the Preakness Stakes.
The Black Eyed Susan Stakes is associated with the Black Eyed Susan Day Cause. Each Year the Maryland Jockey Club commits itself to an issue related to women’s empowerment. This year, the Susan G. Komen for the Cure and the organization Suited To Succeed out of Baltimore are the 2014 Beneficiaries of the Black Eyed Susan Day Cause.
So why not look great and support a cause at the Black Eyed Susan Stakes and go all out in this season’s on trend color pink. Not only will you be showing support a great cause, pink has become a color to compliment the most fashionable woman; it’s not just for little girls anymore. Pastels have been very on trend this season so you can try a pastel or blush pink or go for a big and bold pink in a more saturated shade of pink like magenta. Pink is right on for Spring and pretty much any shade will be sure to set you apart from the crowd.
Just make sure not to go too matchy matchy while pairing your pick outfit together for the 2014 Black Eyed Susan Stakes. If you are wearing a pink outfit, choose a different colored fascinator or try just a pop of pink with a fascinator and a more neutral outfit. If you don’t want to wear pink clothing try a pop of pink with a bright pink lip, like a great shade from Maybelline called Fuchsia Flash.
Some of my favorite pink picks for the 2014 Black Eyed Susan Stakes day are any of the great pink dresses pictured below. They will flatter every figure cinching at the smallest part of a woman’s waist creating an hourglass figure. If you are looking for a more form fitting look try a sheath dress from Modcloth. It has a sexy vibe but it is refreshing and not overdone in a light pink lace. For a fun “Preakness Party” feel try the Lobster dress pictured below.
If full on pink is too much for you try separates like a bright pink skirt or a sweet pale pink top. For a subtle nod to pink try the very on trend light pink sunglasses. For fascinators try the beautiful orchid topper supplied by fashion at the Races, he floral and pink motif is perfect for Spring.
