Look like Royalty in Crimson at the Queen Elizabeth II Challenge Cup Stakes

Look like Royalty in Crimson at the Queen Elizabeth II Challenge Cup Stakes

The crisp smell of fall is in the air, and the Keeneland track in Lexington, Kentucky where the Queen Elizabeth II Challenge Cup Stakes is held is the perfect place to debut your fall best. The $400,000 Queen Elizabeth II Challenge Cup Stakes is set for Saturday, October 12, 2013 at 5:21 PM EDT and is for three-year-old fillies by invitation only.

The race grounds at Keenland are tranquil and have the best of southern charm. The track itself has some beautiful trees circling it, that surely have the beginnings of changing leaves. Fall fashion always mimics the colors of changing leaves with warm yellows, oranges, browns and reds, but this fall season designers’ hue of choice was a rich crimson. There’s no need to be shy with the crimson which is flattering on pretty much everyone. Go all out and cover yourself in crimson from head to toe. Dressing in one color immediately makes your outfit look luxe and expensive and fit for a queen, which is perfect since it is the Queen Elizabeth II Challenge Cup Stakes after all. In fact take inspiration from the current Queen Elizabeth herself who is always sure to match her hat with her outfit.

Matching everything used to be considered outdated, but it’s now considered a fresh and fashion forward take on getting dressed. My pick for this look is a dark red lace dress paired with a jacket, or a long-sleeved lace dress in crimson. People often save lace for warmer months, but with a longer sleeve and the rich crimson color, the dress is spot on for fall. A belt will also give a little structure to the dress. Pair your dress with this crimson hat, for a totally femme look. Pair this look with nude and camel extras. Try these nude patent pumps with bow detail to keep the femininity of the lace dress.

Do lips and nails in either a nude or go totally matchy matchy and do a crimson lip and burgundy or berry nail. Try the classic Essie nail polish color in Wicked or Revlon Colorburst Lipgloss in Bordeaux.

If you need a little extra warmth for the chilly weather in Lexington, Kentucky, then throw on a trench coat in a classic camel color and you will look polished and ready to go in one of fall’s hottest colors.
