The Preakness Stakes gets everybody in Maryland into the racing spirit. Everyone is dressed to the nines, and if you’re planning to come to the racetrack and rub shoulders with other Marylanders, you’re going to need to look your best. Don’t worry -- Route One Apparel has your back! Check out a few our of favorite race day picks:
Ladies, you know the big hat is pretty much non-negotiable. But what other accessories can you wear to ensure you’ll be the star of the show? This black and gold crab bangle, for starters! If there’s one thing that’s as Maryland as the Preakness, it’s crabs, so bring the best of the Old Line state together in your look.
If you’re planning a formal Preakness look, a pair of cufflinks is really going to set you apart from the crowd -- especially if you pick something as striking and unique as our Natty Boh logo cufflinks! We can tell you now that Mr. Boh makes a great wingman.
Sometimes the subtle details are the most important. Who says that keeping your pants up can’t also be super-stylish? This belt was made with the Preakness in mind, and it’s guaranteed to add a little spring to your step as you walk through the racetrack.
Only one horse can get that coveted wreath of black eyed susans, but you can cover yourself with something just as gorgeous -- a scarf adorned with those bright flowers. The weather in MD in April is predictably unpredictable, and you’ll be glad you’ve got it in case things get chilly.
Listen. We’re not going to judge you if you don’t actually know how to tie a bow tie. Consider this one a time-saver, from us to you! This Calvert & Crosslands pre-tied bow tie is as colorful and proud as you are.
