Hooray for mint juleps and ladylike hats! The annual Kentucky Derby is this Saturday, May 2, and we're excited for a good excuse to get dressed up and don our fascinators (finally, a use for our Duchess Kate–inspired impulse buys).

If you're not bound for Louisville, you can get in on the glamour at home. “The Fastest Two Minutes in Sports” has been celebrated and attended by fans since 1875, but it's now just as much about the fashion and cocktails as it is about the race. Traditionally, women would attend in lavishly decorated hats and fascinators, and we're happy to say that custom has remained. When it comes to attire, feminine fit-and-flare sundresses or shifts in spring-infused pastel tones are the dress code of the day. We've taken the floral trend and pulled our favorite dreamy dresses and hat pairings just for the occasion.
