What to wear to Arlington Park on Arlington Oaks Day…
Since this is guys’ day filled with power cars and beer drinking, why not have fun and look the part. Try menswear inspired pieces but give them a feminine twist. For instance try out a great flirty sundress but rather than pairing them with a traditional heel, pair them with flat lace up oxfords. Not only will it be a cute menswear twist, your feet will thank you as you walk around enjoying your craft beer at Arlington Park. You can also go the menswear route with your headwear. Try a wide brimmed safari hat or a fedora rather than a fascinator. Try the navy rimmed fedora (pictured below) with a super feminine and elegant navy dress for a feminine menswear twist. Your menswear inspired pieces will be a fun twist on Guys Day Out at the races.
