Go Global with Your Look at the 2014 Fountain of Youth Stakes

Go Global with Your Look at the 2014 Fountain of Youth Stakes: The 2014 Fountain of Youth Stakes takes place at Gulfstream Park in Hallandale Beach, FL. on Saturday, February 22, 2014. The forecast is nice, with a projected high of 80 degrees and only mildly cloudy. So go ahead and take a little leap into Spring Fashion with global prints.

It isn’t quite Spring season yet, but there is no reason to take a break from the usual winter garb and bring a little brightness into your wardrobe for the Fountain of Youth at Gulfstream Park. Global prints are everywhere this spring and they will not only help you put your best foot forward on race day, but they will carry you through the 2014 Spring/Summer fashion season.

The key to wearing a global look at the Fountain of Youth is to choose a piece that is structured to avoid looking too relaxed and summery. Go for shifts or fit and flare styles. Though the patterns may seem all over the place in the beginning, when done well, they can actually highlight your figure in the most flattering way and the print actually does wonders to hide trouble spots. Since the pattern is busy and keeps the eye moving, it gives the illusion of a great silhouette.

My favorite global look for the 2014 Fountain of Youth Stakes is the dress from Anthropologie. The fabric blocking with the solid blue on the sides gives the illusion of a slimmer middle and the red pattern going up and down the length of the dress gives the eye a vertical visual that helps elongate the body and slim the body.

Keep your shoes and hat simple so that your look doesn’t become too cluttered. My pick is a great pair of metallic heels. They are neutral enough not to compete with the dress and yet chic enough to dress up your look.

Try a fascinator to bring a crisp lightness to your look without competing with the pattern of your dress.

One thing is for sure, you will look fun and fashion forward for a great day at the track at Gulfstream Park for the 2014 Fountain of Youth Stakes! Stay tuned for posts, picks, and predictions for the 2014 Fountain of Youth.
