Preakness at the Piazza | Style Inspo + Tips

Guys, take out on your cute bow ties and ladies, put on your show stopping derby hats and colorful dresses because Preakness at the Piazza is this Saturday!

I seriously didn’t know what to wear until yesterday. I’ve tried on so many dresses and couldn’t make up my mind.There are only a few days left, but themed events def help make styling options easier.

Preakness at the Piazza is half fashion and half party, so you’ll definitely want to wear something festive. Think Derby style, but more fun. My favorite styles are bold colors, floral, pastels and lace.

The best thing about the dresses below? They can be dressed up and dressed down, so you could wear them on the reg. Dress up for Preakness with a big hat and killer heels. Then dress down on summer days by swapping your heels with sneakers, sandals or espadrilles

Here are six dresses perfect for spring, summer and Preakness at the Piazza:


{ Shop it: 1 • 2 • 3 • 4 • 5 • 6 }

The most amazing part about Preakness at the Piazza is that 100% of proceeds from the event go towards the National MS Society. Last year’s event raised more than $120,000. Tickets can be purchased here.

P.S. The official Preakness drink is called the Black Eyed Susan. Get Bethenny Frankel’s skinnygirl version here.
