Hats are Back on Top

From the Queen’s purple-feathered, lime green top hat to Amal Clooney’s hot mustard ensemble, the Meghan-Harry nuptial was a virtual catwalk of today’s most glamourous headwear.

Wish we wore hats more on this side of the world? Agree! We can’t wait until the Spring Racing Carnival, either! But winter is just around the corner now and Melbourne Cup Day will be here before you know it.

And because high fashion is the reason for the racing season, it’s never too early to get ready to show off your unique style. It all starts with the hat.

Hats are an important fashion accessory because they can’t help drawing attention to your face. And your face shape. If your face is rather round, try a pork pie hat. Heart-shaped? Wear a fedora or maybe a cloché. Or perhaps, a bucket hat. (Oh, who’re we kidding? You know you look good in anything.) Whichever style you choose, make sure to pick a hat that fits your head perfectly. And don’t forget to wear it with panache!

If this reminded you to go idea-shopping for your Cup Day outfit or just can’t get enough of the royal wedding, here’s a colourful feast of all things millinery last weekend at Windsor Castle.
