Dubbed the greatest two minutes in sports, the Kentucky Derby is so much ore than a horse race. It's popularity could be contributed to pure athleticism of the three year old thoroughbreds and the stories of the underdogs that can win it all. It could also be the traditions that surround the event- from the blanket of roses and women in fancy hats, to the Kentucky Brown sandwiches and endless mint juleps.
You don't have to follow horse racing to enjoy the race to Triple Crown. In honor of the fancy hat fashion event of the year, we've pulled together our favorite equestrian inspired scarves, perfect to wear on derby day.
If you love Ralph Lauren, you'll love the Bits wild rag collection
Not only does this line perfectly capture Western chic, it holds a special meaning. Each bit featured in the scarf design were used on the Weishaar family ranch in South Dakota.

If your style has a western twist, try the Western Burb
Burberry, but make it western. The Western Burb is a western take on Burberry style, with a chocolate leather yoke border and silver saddle concho details. The brown and tan tones make this scarf a great neutral to add to any outfit.
To make your hat Derby ready, turn to the Rainbow Trout
As we mentioned before, the pillar of Derby fashion is the fancy, over the top hat! No derby outfit can be complete without one. We suggest getting creative with a hat already in your closet and add the unique details- flowers, ribbons, and silk scarves.
Add some sparkle with the Baby Concho line
Above all, fashion worn at the Kentucky Derby is glamorous. To bring some glamour to your derby party (even if you are watching from the comfort of your living room) add some sparkle in the form of silver conchos in the Baby Concho line
