Preakness Style

Ladies, break out those Kentucky Derby style hats and guys, straighten out that bow tie because Preakness at the Piazza is THIS SATURDAY! On Monday morning during Eye Opener Philly on PHL 17, me along with a few other bloggers modeled some looks perfect for the occasion. From stripes to floral print and solids to seersucker, there's tons of looks to choose from. There's no need to look too far because some of the hottest boutiques and designers in the Philadelphia area have got you covered on what to wear!

For the segment, I wore a classic dress by Media, PA Designer, Rachel Godwin Becker. Her line, Laundrea, is perfect for the modern professional women. Her collection of bra friendly and includes machine washable knits and woven fabrications that fit the lifestyle of the women on the go. To dress up this timeless look, add accessories such as these bejeweled statement earrings from Posh Collections located in Malvern, PA.

Floral print always makes a dress stand out in a crowd and this Bell by Alicia Bell dress worn by Alex from Philly PR Girl, also available at Posh Collections, is sure to grab some attention. If you plan on wearing floral print to the event, try to keep your accessories simple by adding a few low key bangles and a neutral hat.

Stripes are so on trend this season and this Alice + Olivia dress from Per Lei Boutique, worn by Lauren, is no exception.  This comfortable yet stylish dress is Preakness ready with a splash of color. Add a fun floppy hat and a color-blocked clutch and you're good to go.

Ian, set a fashionable example for the gentlemen by wearing a seersucker suit by Original Penguin, a "Blueberry Bowtie" shirt by 611 Lifestyle, and this look wouldn't be complete without a bow tie. Find these pieces and many more Preakness Ready outfits at Philly's own, Metro Men's Clothing Shop on E. Passyunk Ave.
