Trend to Try: Preppy Preakness Style

Preppy Preakness Style

Shop: Dorothy Perkins hat; Modcloth dress; ASOS necklace; Forever 21 crossbody; Payless wedges.

The Kentucky Derby may have been this past weekend, but that’s only the first leg of the Triple Crown — meaning two more opportunities to dress up in your best derby attire and sip themed cocktails. The Preakness Stakes may take place down in Baltimore, but Philadelphia celebrates it in style too.

The 2nd Annual Preakness at the Piazza for MS will take place this May 17th. In addition to watching the Preakness Stakes on the Piazza’s big screen, there will also be a silent auction, a DJ and of course, Black-Eyed Susan cocktails. The best part? Last year, almost $100,000 was raised for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society and it looks like that figure will be surpassed this year.

I’m so excited that I get to attend this year’s event as press! I already have my hat picked out, but I’m still working on the rest of my outfit details. I put together this set for inspiration. I love this color-blocked hat paired with a matching necklace and contrasting teal dress (and it wasn’t until after I put together this look that I realized it almost matched my site’s colors!). A beige crossbody bag and wedges complete the look without distracting from it.

Interested in attending the Preakness at the Piazza? You can still purchase your tickets here! There are group and couple discounts available, and it’s all for a great cause. Hope to see some of you there!
