Tag: Kentucky Derby hats

In honor of Derby Week here on SW, I’ve gathered some of our favorite Derby-esque fashion for some stylish Southern goodness! So tip up your brim and let’s get started, y’all!

Large or small, wide brimmed, feathered, flowered or just plain outrageous, women from around the world top off their Derby duds with one the finest Southern traditions – Derby hats! Personally, I think the head wear in the grandstands might just be the best part of the Kentucky Derby.

Wondering how you can pull off this millinery trend? Try pairing your Derby-inspired topper with a simple shift dress of a coordinating color and be sure to keep your makeup clean and natural. Don’t forget, true Derby attire is not complete without a pair of sky-high ankle breakers! But take a tips from experienced Derby divas and also pack a pair of fashionable, yet comfortable, flats or flip flops to wear home.

    I. Love. This! Maybe I’m just still obsessed over all the Royal Wedding hats, but this is awesome! I’m loving the fascinator trend, and even the tiny hats (I’m rocking a mini sombrero today myself!). So glam, so fun–love it!

    Love this post! I’m a hat fiend. I had a Sunday Hat Birthday Brunch for a birthday that I blogged about, and I wore my Easter bonnet recently which drew lots of comments. I’m 32 but I’ve been wearing hats for years (following tradition from my mom and grandmothers). The key is to keep your “crown” youthful and wear it with confidence. I’m not sure about all that having the “face” to pull off a hat I always hear about. Just about everyone can unless you have a huge head. LOL!
