Preakness is less than a week away and come this Saturday the infectious InfieldFest hopefully will encourage people to take chances and express their bright side through their fashion choices on the day.

Make sure you’ve got your outfit together for this fun in the sun (hopefully) day!

Do you remember the Triple Crown trends that we’ve been speaking about? Like we said in our opening, Preakness is all about the infield and the party that it brings, so this day isn’t about florals, southern belles, or mint juleps, this day is about “Gettin’ your Preak on!”

We are looking for bold prints, patterns, and modern textures. Polka Dot, Aztec, stripes and colors galore. Feel free to pair up contradicting patterns, polka dot top and striped skirt etc. Have fun with Maryland colors: Red, black, white, and yellow … very mod style!

You can absolutely incorporate more black into your outfit (compared with the Kentucky Derby) but make sure it’s balanced with other colors and not just white; leave that for the Belmont Stakes!

The Black-Eyed Susan is the flower of the weekend - a yellow petal with a black center - so of course you can pick black and yellow for your outfit colors!

Black-Eyed Susan day is also dedicated to breast cancer survivors, with a portion of the profits benefitting Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

Whilst Kentucky Oaks day is dedicated to the color pink, Black-Eyed Susan Day does a bit of the same but is also open to its bright colors. So feel free to incorporate a little bit of pink into your outfit but don’t feel the need to go all out, like you did for Oaks.

If you want to go all out in a color, YELLOW is the color to choose!

Check out this outfit for inspiration:

Little bit of yellow, little bit of black, little bit of pink. PERFECT outfit for Black-Eyed Susan day!

Heading into the big day, the second leg of the Triple Crown, Preakness Stakes day, the infield festivities and action only get bigger, and you know that means we all have to step up our fashion game, too.

Again, for this fantastic day you want bright fun colors and fun patterns, and feel free to mix and NOT MATCH!

Now, when we say “not match,” we want you to throw some caution to the wind and pair up patterns and styles that may not normally be considered best friends.

Throw together stripes and polka dots, pair up a striking pattern with a single block downstairs … oh, and whatever you do, don’t forget your hat, which is always necessary for race days!

All of these pieces and more can be found at the Fashion at the Races website.

Check out these outfits for some inspiration.
