What to Wear: Men's Kentucky Derby Outfit

What to wear when placing your bets

This year’s Kentucky Derby falls on Cinco de Mayo, but whether you’re drinking Mint Juleps or margaritas, you want your look to be on point.

Whether you’re lucky enough to be heading to the track at Churchill Downs, or just getting down with a plastic cup full of bourbon in a friend’s backyard, this is the weekend to embrace with bold patterns and bright colors. Reaching for spiffy – yes, spiffy! – new heights? Don’t be surprised when you get a wink from wearing a boaters hat and a nod after saddling up to an entire seersucker suit.
