DJ-Dressed: Derby Day Style

We’d venture to say that down South, Derby Day is bigger than the Super Bowl, bigger than Thanksgiving, bigger than New Year’s Eve. . . It may even be bigger than Easter Sunday. Namely, it’s the perfect excuse to break out our ultra-colorful, head-to-toe best (hello, Derby bonnets!) and sip mint juleps until the sun sets.

Here, a few of our favorite Southern bloggers show us how they’re styling Draper James for Derby Day.


Hilary Rose of By Hilary Rose trotted out the perfect accessory to pair with our V-Neck Love Circle Fit-n-Flare Dress (and we’re not talking about that fascinator, though it’s pretty fabulous, too).



Jessica Sturdy of Bows and Sequins makes black-and-white look bright in our Collection Embellished Shift Dress, Scallop Blazer, and Lucy Hat.



Mackenzie Horan of Design Darling is all sunshine in our Harpeth Jacquard Skirt, Swiss Dot Scallop Elliot Shirt, Reese’s Limited Edition Birthday Bag, and Lucy Hat.



Amy Havins of Dallas Wardrobe reinvents the summer suit in our Sterling Stripe Tweed Blazer and Shorts.



Cheers to Derby Day, y’all!
