Summer weather has officially made its debut in the Derby City, and we’re looking forward to spending our days under the sun in style. June’s hot and muggy climate can make fashion choices difficult, but our summer style guru, Tracy Varga of Tracy Varga Group, helped us create four looks that are perfect for both outdoor and indoor adventures.
For this month’s fashion roundup, we chose three fun June events: The Louisville Brunch Crawl, ZooFari! One Wild Night 2019 and Bourbon by the Bridge. The gorgeous clothes from local boutiques Rodeo Drive, Blush Boutique and Monkee’s of Louisville are worn by models Yasmeen Mohammadi, Aysia Hogle and Dakota Bruton. And we shot all of these looks in the stunning St James Court.
Here’s what to wear in Louisville this June!

What to Wear + Tracy’s Style Tips: This is the wildest night of the year, and the attire is creative black tie, so you are encouraged to wear something bright and festive.
