You're Still Fat

5 Subtly Chic Derby Hats

FashimCaitlin VanderKlokComment

Subtlety is key when you're attending such an established, long-running event as the Kentucky Derby. Sipping mint juleps and nibbling on small bites in the sweltering Kentucky heat (never mind because Polar Vortex) is something that requires the most thoughtful outfit and, moreover, hat. Here, we present 5 of our favorites. 

"Bitch, who you starin' at?"

"Bitch, who you starin' at?"

The subtle pastel hues of this hat imply the seriousness of the bets at hand and the importance of maintaining emotional distance from those around you. 


"These are my favorite glasses!" 

"These are my favorite glasses!" 

This bitch knows what's up. The only thing more subtle than the springtime color coordination of this topper and brooch is the added pleasure of dark wine-stained lips for daytime and a pair of Lenscrafters. 


"I don't need makeup to be beautiful"

"I don't need makeup to be beautiful"

Starting with jewelry as a base is a great way to make sure you're not going over the top. As Coco Chanel said, "It is always better to be slightly underdressed."


"You can't sit with me"

"You can't sit with me"

This one is actually perfect, big and bitchy and would be perfect for a funeral for funds lost to shitty horse picks.
