Last-minute fashion finds for the Kentucky Derby


With the Kentucky Derby countdown presented by Woodford Reserve dipping into single digits, I have to admit that, like many, I’m a last-minute planner. For all the other women who look in their closets and wonder “what am I going to wear this year?” … do not be afraid. Here are descriptions of a few Amazon fashion influencers (yes, that’s apparently a real thing) who offer curated lists of spring and summer fashion that can arrive at your doorstep before the weekend.

First of all, I recently learned that Amazon Fashion has its own Instagram page. Here you can see what the styles look like on dozens of people. This is great for someone like me who is obsessed with reading a dozen reviews and researching photos of clothes on people other than models before hitting “buy now”.

When it comes to Amazon influencers to reference for Derby looks, Allie Hunter recently shared TONS of adorable dresses and perfect two-piece sets for Oaks and Derby. If you’d rather bypass Instagram and go straight to Amazon, I recommend checking out her Spring Pastels Ideas List or her Shower Attendee Ideas List. From dresses to shoes, you can find lots of great fashion items in one place.

Another Instagram influencer with Amazon Ideas Lists is Emma Jacquelyn. She specializes in small fashion finds, but most of her Amazon outfits are regular sized. One list I would recommend checking out right now is her list of spring and summer dress ideas. Almost anything is under $30, and there are a wide variety of patterns and styles to find something that matches your Derby aesthetic.

Next, Jacky Tshoungang also has an incredible collection of high-end dresses from the online retailer. This orange dress will turn heads at the races, but most importantly, will also arrive in time for you to wear it. If you’re looking to make a statement, I recommend visiting her list of wedding guest ideas, which is mostly solid color dresses with red carpet-worthy silhouettes.

Finally, Gail Gonzalez is iconic for pushing fashion out of her comfort zone. Her use of bold colors and patterns is always *the chef’s kiss*, and you wouldn’t believe that some of the designer dresses she wears are actually from Amazon. She has a highlight reel documenting her Amazon fashion finds, but if you want to go straight to her Amazon storefront, look no further.

No matter what you end up wearing, if you attend the races you will have a fantastic time! Don’t worry too much about the perfect outfit, but if you’re in a rush, you now have an arsenal of Amazon fashion listings to help you out.
