Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to Vox.com, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Hats off to all the Kentucky Derby ladies: They sure know how to rock a wide brim, even when the day's overcast skies nullified any real need for the millinery hugeness pictured here. But it was never really about "need" anyway. Check out the choice looks straight from the tracks over at Elle, and if you need more inspiration to adopt the shady style through summer, be sure to take a look at our favorite twenty toppers.
