While Kentucky Derby style is usually all about the hats and stilettos, many guests this year ditched their heels.
Flat sandals were spotted on many attendees — offering a more walkable, yet still polished, finish to their ensembles. Little details like bows and metallics added a festive touch to the shoes.
One Derby-goer was chic in a lacy pink dress with a matching feather-trimmed hat. She accented her chic look with nude bow-trimmed sandals.
Another attendee looked stylish in a floral midi dress and a see-through blue hat with a ribbon wrapped around the base. Her shoes were flat brown strappy sandals.
Elsewhere, a fun-loving guest wore a lacy nude minidress with flat black slip-on sandals. On her head, she sported a pale blue hat.
Not everyone skipped the high heels this year, though. One chic reveler made an appearance in a black dress with white and red detailing and shiny black pumps on a leg-lengthening stiletto heel. A floppy black hat pulled her look together.
On the red carpet, “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star NeNe Leaks had a flower and butterfly-trimmed hat on with a marigold-colored dress. The reality star completed her ensemble with pointy-toed metallic pumps.
