I have gotten a ton of questions from friends about what hats or fascinators to wear when they come for the races! There’s so many options that it can be hard to decide. Some subscribe to the philosophy of the bigger the better! When else will it be perfectly acceptable to wear a giant hat decked out in feathers, bows, tulle, flowers, sequins or whatever else you desire?!
I admire people who go for broke when it comes to derby hats, but I subscribe to a more subtle and chic philosophy. I love something unique, but I want it to be comfortable enough to wear all day. These are a few pieces I particularly would wear. I especially love this beige and black hat with the flower detail. For something more elegant, I love this red fascinator with the birdcage.
