Vivien Sheriff HunkyD Coral Hat, £915
For Royal Ascot

 

There is no better time than the gloriously extravagant Royal Ascot to fully embrace the notion 'go big or go home', which is why  I love this bold and beautiful creation from Vivien Sheriff.

The mix of  bright shades - from sherbet pink to zingy orange - with the large oval sweeping brim and signature Sheriff feathers is on trend and creates a dramatic effect to any outfit.

A classic monochrome hat will add an air of elegance to any outfit, whether you opt for a stylish jumpsuit or a timeless black dress for this year's Royal Ascot.

This Rachel Trevor Morgan hat with black and nude piped bows is a stylish investment that will see you through a number of special occasions. Not to mention the elegant side-sweep upturn brim allows the perfect view of your winning horse!
