What to Wear on Woodward Stakes Day…

Since it is Labor Day Weekend and you will want to enjoy festivities from day to night, why not go all out in an all-white ensemble. Traditionally, Labor Day marks the last weekend it is appropriate to wear white before the fall season, so it is the perfect time to get decked out in white and celebrate the end of the summer season and the end of the Saratoga racing season.

In order to keep your look both day and night time appropriate and to look chic and fresh, make sure to keep your look structured and ladylike. Try a ladylike all white dress and have a real Marilyn moment. If you prefer something more modern and edgy try a white blazer over your all white look. You can even finish off your look with white extras like a white heel and a white hat.

For inspiration in your head to toe white looks check out celebrities like Jaime King, Rosie Huntington Whiteley, and Emma Stone. They all do head to toe white just right with chic and feminine, but structured looks.

You will be ready to go all day at Saratoga on Woodward Stakes Day with a full day of races and even through the night with the festival fun downtown in one of the looks pictured below.
