What to wear on Delta Downs Jackpot Day…
The weather is predicted to be cool and a little rainy so why not wear one of fall’s major and classic trends, the trench coat. The trench coat has come a long way from the big and baggy, borrowed from the men styles of the 80’s. Also, these days, trenches are not just for the straight laced conservatively dressed working woman. There are so many different styles of trenches to choose from to express your own personal style.
For the fun feminine girl, try out a trench with a heart print on it. The print makes it sweet but the cut keeps it classic. For a true fall feel try a plaid trench coat. The colors and the print are classic fall trends. For something light and bright try a pink trench coat. For the woman with a little bit of edge and a feel for luxury try the vegan leather trench.
Top off your Delta Downs Jackpot look with a beautiful fascinator from Fashion at the Races. You may even want to try a great maroon beret, which keeps the fall vibe of your trench going. Just make sure to stay away from fedoras, which will be too literal of a copycat from menswear.
Your trench will be the perfect look for the 2014 Delta Downs Jackpot!
