The Kentucky Derby Style Guide and Jockey Coloring Activity

Can you believe that the very first Kentucky derby was almost 150 years ago? This beloved southern tradition is an important part of many Kentuckian's history as well as little english’s history. Based in Lexington, Kentucky, little english has curated collections for children inspired by the Derby itself for years. This spring, our Derby collection features a beautiful floral with a coordinating plaid, with pops of aqua and green. From baby to big kid, little english has coordinating outfits for a polished family look for any Derby activity. To add to your Derby festivities, little english has made a jockey silk template for coloring and decorating! Download the PDF here:

For the little girls in your life, we absolutely adore the Caroline Bubble in Derby Floral and the Olivia Dress in Aqua Twill for all your Derby parties and events. The Caroline Bubble features an adorable ruffle around the neck. The geometric smocking at the chest has delicate pink, yellow, and blue flowers. These lovely details make the Caroline Bubble so perfect for a big Derby day! Finding a dress for big girl on Derby is a big deal! A classic option that we love is the Olivia Dress. This dress features a ric rac trim on the neck, sleeves, and hem. The gorgeous aqua color of the Olivia Dress ties in wonderfully to the Derby Plaid pattern that can be found in other pieces that are great for the Derby.

For the baby boy’s taking on this traditional day, we love the Davant Bubble in Derby Plaid. The front pleats add that signature volume that little english loves to incorporate into our bubbles. The peter pan collar and button tabs are an adorable addition to this bubble. For big brother, the same Derby Plaid featured on the bubble can also be found on Button Down Shirt for big boys. Pair this button down shirt with our Classic Short in White Twill. This outfit will make your big boy feel all grown up and will tie in beautifully to any of our other previously mentioned pieces.

You can't go wrong with any of these Derby looks for your family. We love to see how you style little english. Send any pictures of Derby outfits and decorated jockey silks to customerservice@littleenglish.com
