The derby may be a man's game, or at least it was in its heyday, with the women simply sitting and watching in their Sunday best, but the First Rite Fall 2012 collection gives such womenswear a modern androgynous twist. In place of stunning gowns and sculptural hats, this collection features streamlined skirts, tailored jackets and collared shirts.

Put together by Mission-based designer Nikki Garcia, the First Rite Fall 2012 collection is clean and simple. Garcia writes, "I looked to traditional menswear and pulled from the classic styles of gauchos, matadors, and equestrians to create a collection that combines trousers, shirting, and ties in more modern and feminine silhouettes." By concentrating on the quality of cuts and materials used, she manages to give these practical outfits some pizazz. Stats for Androgynous Derby Fashion Trending: Older & Warm
