Big hats are essential for Derby parties. Part southern tradition and part spectacle, the hats are probably the greatest part of the Derby. Wearing a hat to view the race is also said to bring good luck. If hat’s aren’t for you: a more recent trend in Derby headwear is the fascinator. Smaller than a traditional hat and just as stylish, this piece of headwear has become more popular among Derby party attendees over recent years.They can be simpler to wear than a hat, and won’t give you hat hair!

We have curated some of our favorite hats and fascinators for you to pair with your Derby outfit. Come to the store and try them on. But first here are some tips for pairing your hat/fascinator with our outfit.

  • If your hat has a pattern, keep the dress design simple.
  • If the hat is simple and elegant, keep the outfit simple also for a classy look.
  • If you want to be outrageous, keep it consistent! Make the hat the star though!
  • If you have long hair, put it in a ponytail to the side or neatly behind you.

During this time of year you, you may notice some brightly colored blue Robin eggs around your neighborhood! Well our fashion consultant, Suzanna Pearson, certainly noticed them in her neighborhood. Then when she returned to The Lake Forest Shop, she noticed how this gorgeous Replica Collection necklace resembled the Robin eggs. The bright blue adds a pop of color to any neutral colored outfit. Pair with a simple white blouse and slacks or with your favorite LBD (little black dress for those who aren’t great with acronyms).
