The Derby Day Style Guide
When it comes to Derby Day style, it’s all about fashion that is black, white and sharp. This monochromatic theme is your chance to show off your perfectly tailored suit with a refined edge.
The best thing about Derby Day is the continuation of this stylish tradition, but black and white can be tricky if you don’t get it just right.
We’ve put together some of our favourite monochrome looks to ensure you’re dressed to the nines for a good old fashioned day of racing.
Derby day is about classic elegance and your suit should reflect that. You can’t go past the Gibson Trim Suit. This suit is essential for the sharply dressed man featuring one button closure and contrasting trim at the chest pocket. Versatile and stylish, a black suit can work wonders for Derby Day.
If you want to step outside the box, try playing with charcoal colours. The Donahue Stretch 2 Button Suit in Silver is a stand out. Paired with the Donahue Waistcoat, this ensemble will have you seeing gold.
When it comes to footwear, don’t be tempted to slip on your tattered office shoes. Bad shoes can completely throw off your look so investing in a pair of new real leather shoes is worth it.
Minimalism is key, so try our black Parsons Dress Shoes. This sleek, round toed shoe is perfect for more formal occasions and adds a touch of class to your overall look.
When you mention Derby Day you think top hats, canes and monocles. Although times have moved on from there, accessories are still a key part of your Derby Day look.
The perfect pocket square and tie will give your look an instant boost. Our Paisley Pocket Square and Essential Black Tie will work with different coloured suits so you can re-wear these accessories for several occasions.
It’s all about the finishing touches. Don’t forget to add our Label Pin and Classic Cufflinks to ensure you nail the style stakes this Derby Day.
