Preakness Fashion; Shine like a Triple Crown Jewel
Preakness Fashion; Shine like a Triple Crown Jewel: The 139th Running of the Preakness Stakes is the 2nd Jewel in the Triple Crown and takes place on May 17, 2014, so why not take your outfit to the next level and sparkle like a Triple Crown jewel yourself. The Preakness is a true “party for the people” so be sure to put or party pants on, or in this case party dress, for the Preakness Stakes.
Embellishments and bedazzled jewels were everywhere this season, even on t-shirts and sweatshirts. Embellishments and jewels were used to bring dazzle to even the simplest of garments. You can do embellishment all over or you can do it in a subtle way, either way, you’ll be sure to sparkle and stand out at the Preakness Stakes.
If you want to get into traditional Preakness fashion, wear an embellished dress in black and yellow, which are the official colors of the Preakness Stakes due to the garland of Black-Eyed Susans draped over the winner immediately after the second leg of the Triple Crown. A dress with a hint of yellow that will take you from Pimlico Race Course to a night out in Baltimore may be a good option as well. If you’ll be spending the day in the Preakness infield listening to Lorde, you may want to go for a more casual comfortable look with a fun pair of flowered shorts and crop top. A tailored yellow top with a black and white polka-dotted skirt with let the boys know you’re the luckiest lady at the track!
Any of theses looks can be gussied up with jewelry for the 2014 Preakness Stakes. If you don’t have a garment with embellishment, try to add on embellished sparkly jewelry like a statement necklace or earrings or add a little sparkle on your shoes.
You’ll want to make sure that your make up can stand up against the embellished clothing, you don’t want your face to be washed out by all that sparkle so be sure to do a bold lip in either pink, red, orange or berry. Try Revlon’s Color Stay Just Bitten Kissable Balm line, the colors are saturated and moisturizing for a perfect combo.
The 139th Running of the Preakness Stakes is scheduled for a 6:20 PM ET post time on Saturday, May 17, 2014. Stay tuned for post positions, icks, and plays for the 2014 Preakness Stakes.
