What to wear to the 2014 Kentucky Jockey Club Stakes…
For your race day and game day looks try out the Fall 2014 shearling trend. Shearling adds a luxe and laid back vibe to any outfit. It is perfect for staying warm and looking chic but is also casual enough to help you fit right in watching football and the races in the cooler weather. It makes girls look effortless and polished. Try a gorgeous Shearling lined Cardigan. The caramel coloring and oversized collar makes it elegant but it also has a relaxed vibe.
Shearling accents in your footwear is another great way to look luxe and polished but also warm, effortless, and chic. Try an ankle boots or wedge style shearling boot to compliment your look. If you get cold easily and think you’ll need some extra warmth than why not layer this shearling lined coat over your outfit.
For your topper, shearling demands a more substantial head piece that can stand up to the shearling. Try a wide brimmed hat in a neutral or earth toned color like a perfect-for-fall olive hat or try a safari inspired topper.
In your shearling look you will be sure to stay warm and stylish while cheering on your top horse pick or your favorite team at Churchill Downs on Saturday!
