What to wear to Saratoga on Opening Weekend…

Since this is a big weekend at Saratoga, you will want to look your best and make sure to stand out for all of the opening weekend festivities. Choose bright and bold primary colors. There are three primary colors, blue, yellow, and red. You will be sure to find the right shade for you in one of these colors on the color wheel, like cobalt blue, canary yellow, or a bright bold vibrant red.

Try the yellow polka dot dress (pictured below) for opening weekend at Saratoga. Not only is it in a great saturated yellow, it also features polka dots which is a huge summer trend. If yellow is too sunny for you then try a classic cobalt blue shift dress.

If you’re a daring woman who likes all eyes on her at the track then go for a bold bright classic red. Try the great bold red shift dress (pictured below) that especially accentuates your waist and hides thighs.

Pair your primary colors with nude or metallic shoes to keep from looking like a full on crayon. Try something strappy and light so it doesn’t take away from your outfit.

If a primary color all over is too much for you then try wearing the primary color in your accessories like a great bold fascinator or hat or even bright bold shoes. Primary colors are ok in your shoes as long as you are not wearing it all over. Try some red stilettos or a bold yellow fascinator headband.

Take inspiration for celebrities like Kate Mara and Kristen Bell and you will be sure to stand out in your primary colors at opening weekend at Saratoga and the TVG Diana Stakes.
