What are you wearing to Derby? Seems like we are running out of time to find an outfit! Don’t stress, StyleBlueprint is helping you out today, as we have canvassed the local shops for Derby dresses for the last few weeks. We’ve noticed some trends along the way, trends that you might want to be a part of. We have divided the dresses by trend, so if you are shopping for a specific look, you’ll know just where to find it.

As you well know, it’s important to get the base of the outfit before accessorizing with hats, shoes and clutches. So first things first — today we are just sticking to dresses. (And make sure you read to the end to see two examples of what to wear for your man — we can’t forget about him, right?!)

Trend: Two-Piece

The two-piece skirt and top trend is all over the boutiques in Louisville. This is a great bang for your buck, as you are able to wear them together and then as separates later.

Trend: Jumpsuits

Jumpsuits are found at many local boutiques as well. These are flattering and comfortable, but if you’re a little concerned, don’t worry. Here’s a guide for how to wear one. And word to the wise, it’s difficult to use the restroom in one of these, as it requires completely taking it off.
