What to wear to the 2015 Wood Memorial…
The Aqueduct Race Track is located in the great state of New York, and even though it might still be a little chilly, spring is emerging in full bloom, providing the perfect opportunity to try one of the season’s most popular trends, floral print. Florals are in for every spring season, but this year, rather than the typical muted pastel, soft, and feminine girly florals, florals are bright and vibrant and set on black backdrops. Try a fit and flare dress with florals in bold blues and pinks and bright whites. For a fitted femme fatale look, try a floral dress in a fitted sheath fit.
You can even take the trend to your footwear for the 2015 Wood Memorial. For your hat, instead of a floral print topper, try a literal interpretation of the floral motif trend and actually wear a hat that features flowers. Choose a flower-inspired topper in a vibrant color as well in order to stand up next to your floral print outfit.
Even if the weather is chilly, you will feel vibrant and ready for spring in your floral prints at Aqueduct for the 2015 Wood Memorial!
