The Kentucky Derby is billed as “the greatest two minutes in sports.”

The race might be short but the day lasts forever — depending on when you start drinking and how well you hold your liquor. The third most important part of the Derby is the fashion. If you drink long enough, all of the close seem absolutely normal.

If you’re attending a Kentucky Derby party again this year, you’re going to need to dress accordingly. Here are some items to look totally fancy at this year’s party.
