What to wear for the Kentucky Derby

April is an exciting time here at Eve. It’s a time of receiving new spring and summertime wear. For the past couple of months, we’ve been receiving the latest in Kentucky Derby hats. Luckily, this year the Kentucky Derby is May 5th–also Cinco de Mayo–so twice the reason to look fabulous!

Whether attending the 2018 Kentucky Derby, or hosting your very own Derby party or celebrating Cinco de Mayo, we’ll help you look your best! We know planning a party can be time intensive, and we’d love to help you make that process easier. At Eve, we’ll help put your ensemble together so that you have one less thing (though very important) to worry about.

The beautiful and bold hats, here at Eve, originated as a part British culture and were introduced to Southern culture by Kentucky Derby founder Col. Meriwether Lewis Clark, Jr. and his wife. The fancy hat tradition started because the Derby was modeled after European races where “full morning dress” was required. Women would get dressed up to go to church and formal events–dressing to the nines!

Derby hats have come to be known as a good luck charm for those attending the races and they have remained a constant part of the Derby attire throughout the years! So ladies, let the hat be your statement piece. The bigger the better!

Eve has so many beautiful hats to choose from, but don’t wait until the last minute. You’ll find the perfect hat and outfit at Eve. While we have the best selection of hats in the Denver area, we also carry a variety of women’s current fashion-forward items.

Don’t forget, mint juleps are the official refreshment of the Kentucky Derby!

Eve is a women’s clothing boutique with a carefully-curated selection of jewelry, handbags and accessories.
