If you’ve ever been to a horse race, then you very well know that there’s nothing quite like it. The buzzing crowd, the bourbon-fueled smiles (or champagne—take your pick!), the warm sunshine illuminating vivid threads aplenty—it’s an occasion for the ages. This Derby Day—whether at the races or at home—if you’ve found your heart’s set on stylishly enjoying the day’s revelry, well then, you don’t have to search far to see it through (sartorially speaking, that is). Simply look to the fascinator—call it the centerpiece of the accessories world—to put forth the ultimate display of individuality and Derby spirit, rolled into one. Throw this glamorous number on and without fail, it’ll pull together a look fit for Churchhill Downs, and then some. So ladies, have your pick of one of these toppers for the day’s festivities, and like clockwork, you’ll emulate every iconic Kate Middleton look to-date. Classic.
