This week I will be attending a Kentucky Derby themed party, so naturally, I had to begin looking for the fashion accessory that’s most associated with the women who attend the event – the big, fancy, hat. The extravagant hat tradition dates back to 1711 when Queen Anne enforced a strict dress code which mandated the public wear hats in her presence. Years later, headwear still remains a staple at the event, and steals more attention than the races. Below are some of the hats I think would be perfect for the special occasion.
