What to wear to Delaware Park…

With a fun day at the 2014 Delaware Handicap and a Country Line Dancing party afterwards it is the perfect time to try out the Western trend, which was seen all over the spring runways this year. This doesn’t mean you have to trade your fascinator for a Stetson, but go ahead and incorporate western influences like fringe, denim, leather, and gingham details. Try a sweet gingham plaid dress from Modcloth (pictured below). It is still elegant and sweet but gives a little nod to the western wear look. You can also try a western tribal print dress for a more bohemian western look that is also fun and quirky. If you want to try a sleeker look for race day then pair a chambray denim shirt with western detailing a bright sleek pencil skirt. Try a fun neutral fascinator with any of these looks to keep the focus on your western wear. If you really want to go with the theme then pair your look with a fun pair of booties inspired by cowboy boots or you can keep it classic with a simple heel. Another great accessory to catch the western trend in to simply carry a bag with fringe. Look to celebs like Olivia Palermo, Camilla Belle, and Kate Bosworth for inspiration on the western trend.

You will be sure to look great and have fun at the 2014 Delaware Handicap and the line dancing party in your fun western wear.
