Try Your Hand at Luxe Gloves to Top Off Your Withers Stakes Look
Try Your Hand at Luxe Gloves to Top Off Your 2014 Withers Stakes Look: The 2014 Withers Stakes will be race 9 at the Aqueduct race track on February 1st, 2014. The race is 1 1/16 miles and has a $200,000 purse. It’s one of many races on the Derby Prep trail. The Aqueduct race track is located in the great state of New York and the predicted weather is cloudy with a high of 37 degrees, so you’ll want to make sure you continue to stay warm in this winter weather.
A warm coat is a given for the 2014 Withers Stakes at Aqueduct, but don’t underestimate the power of glam winter accessories. Channel glamorous old Hollywood charm and try a long glove. The accessory will be sure to keep your hands and arms nice and toasty and add a posh and luxe touch to your outfit. The accessory channels a little bit of a vintage 19040’s vibe, but keep it modern by staying away from anything lacy, instead go with a more edgy material like leather, and make sure not to give it a prom vibe by staying away from satin or anything pastel or white.
Look to Lucy Liu, pictured below, on how to make your glove look fresh. Choose dark neutrals or bold and bright concentrated pops of color. Pair it with a form fitted sheath to look like a fierce femme fatal at the track rather than a full dress or skirt, to again, avoid looking like a prom queen or a 1950’s debutant.
Try a pair of leather black opera length gloves for a sleek look and elegant look or a vintage pair embellished with buttons. Pair them with a sheath dress or pencil skirt with a heavier texture and weight in order to give a balanced cold weather look and hold its own against the gloves. Pair the black gloves with a great tweed sheath dress from Modcloth for a strong, confident and totally femme look.
If long gloves intimidate you, you can still get a luxe femme look with slightly shorter gloves in bright leather, like mustard yellow or cobalt blue or even a girly pink. Pair the gloves with a classic black sheath dress to really let the gloves stand out.
Pair your Withers Stakes look with a fascinator with luxurious feathers like peacock in order to keep the glamorous vibe of the look going and you’ll step out at the Withers Stakes looking like a modern version of an old 1940’s starlet. Fashion at the Races is a great place to shop for unique hats, fascinators, and gloves!
