IMAGES | Fabulous hats, bold suits and funky costumes are Derby fashion statements

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Kentucky Derby Day is a chance to see and be seen. And that means dressing up and pulling out all the stops. 

Ladies have famously worn fabulous hats and fascinators to Churchill Downs for decades.  The dress is important, but not as important as the hat. 

A fairly new twist is for the men to get in on making a fashion statement.  Vivid suits with bold patterns and bright colors are a contrast to what women wear to the track.

In the Infield, it's all about comfort.  Rain ponchos and tennis shoes are the norm. And the wilder the costumes the better!
