What to wear to Prairie Meadows for the Juvenile Mile…
Since the Prairie Meadows is mostly a nighttime event, why not try something leather. This season, leather was featured in the summer time. Even though it is unusual the trend works surprisingly well, in lightweight leather styles. We are not talking about leather pants or a full on leather outfit. Try leather shorts or a leather skirt or pieces that have leather trim. This gives a great edgy flare to your nighttime look but it is still relaxed and light and fun enough for the end of summer. Try the Calvin Klein black leather shorts. Wear it with a crisp button up longsleeve shirt to balance out all the skin on the bottom and to give yourself a sleek, sexy menswear inspired look. If you want something more feminine and light, try a flared skater skirt. The eyelet bottom and neutral light tan color give it a great summery flare. Pair it with a chambray shirt for a relaxed but still cool and chic look. If a full leather piece is too much for you then try something with leather trim like a great shift dress with subtle leather detail. You can even try a little leather detail in your fascinator.
With a little leather you will be ready for the race and for a summer night out at Prairie Meadows for the 2014 Juvenile Mile!
The Prairie Meadows Juvenile Mile is the 10th race of the day with a post time of 10:03 PM on Saturday, August 7, 2014.
