LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS 11)--This year, Derby style is evolving from simplistic peplum dresses to multiple shades of seersucker. You no longer need to subscribe to boring florals and tan chinos from your closets. Let’s update your prints and invest in trousers your date can be proud of. We are going flirty, bold and monochromatic this season!

What do people wear to The Kentucky Derby is thee second most topic of conversation after who won the race. The third, is what we actually wore! What locals call ‘The Derby,’ is one more opportunity to take our Sunday’s best straight to the winner’s circle.

Every week leading up to 'The Run for the Roses' we are teaming up with celebrity stylist and fellow KYian Ben Wills and Blogger Bethanni Williams, on how to find the best style options this race season. You can find them Here: iBenWills.com or iBenwills on instagram and Bethanni Williams at ILuvBethanni.com.

STEAL HIS LOOK:

Cheers to our old school playas from the Himalayas; these men represent our coolest uncles and grandfathers to date. When you're born between 1950-1970, style was embodied internally rather than externally. Style is the way he walks, how conversation is exchanged and he internalizes skills stretching from gambling horses to changing the oil in his niece's car. This man understands the intricate leaves forming Cuban cigars and its perfect bourbon pair; he smokes with ease. Fashion isn't for special occasions, it's his everyday signature.
