The very first Kentucky Derby was inspired by top-tier races in England and France, so it’s no surprise that the upscale dress codes of European horse racing also came across the pond with Derby creator Meriwether Lewis Clark (the grandson of William Clark, as in Lewis and Clark).

In the early days of the Derby, Gilded Age styles were front and center, including corsets and long dresses for women. Hats were seen as a status symbol, and the tradition of wearing lavished hats continues to this day from elegant fascinators to wild, themed hats.

Fashion trends at the Kentucky Derby continued to follow whatever was the latest and greatest style in the U.S. at the time, from more simple attire throughout the Great Depression to glamorous outfits in a post-war America ready to party.

6 vintage fashion trends that TikTok teens are ‘discovering’

Beloved fashion trends always tend to repeat themselves, and if you take a scroll through TikTok, creators on the popular video-sharing app are bringing some vintage trends back around.

“Can’t believe the tik tok teens have just discovered yoga pants and they’re calling them flared leggings,” wrote one Twitter user at the time. “I hate it here.”

8 Women On How Their Style Changed When They Moved Cities & Towns

The pandemic has shifted people’s priorities in many ways, from career changes to lockdown breakups. For some, suddenly being confined to the four walls of a cramped flat in the middle of an exorbitantly priced city had them seeking pastures new. There were those whose changing perspective found them new residents of bucolic villages and quaint coastal towns, while there were others who left their motherland to embrace the next new adventure abroad. The ultimate chance for reinvention, a big move offers the question: how much of what we wear is dictated by where we live? Does the character of a city – or the anonymity it provides – influence what you choose to wear each morning?

From Colours to Cuts, These Are the Hair Trends That Matter Most This Spring

Working with a brilliant team of fashion editors who have their fingers on the pulse means that, luckily for me, I’ve had the low-down on the spring/summer fashion trends for 2021 for quite a while now. The world of beauty, however, can be a little trickier to predict. We’ve already delved into the brilliant beauty products that shaped 2020, but the growing popularity of platforms like TikTok means that trending beauty often changes overnight. Combine that with the uncertainty around the opening and closing of beauty salons, and it’s becoming increasingly tricky to forecast which beauty treatments and trends look set to take off in 2021.

However, after enjoying just one haircut during the whole of 2020, I was feeling frankly desperate for a little hairstyle inspiration, so I decided it was time to ask some of my favourite hair experts to take a peek into their crystal
