Whether you're planning a day at the races or looking for the perfect finishing touch to a summer wedding outfit; hats and headpieces are an elegant way to elevate your look. From classic silhouettes in neutral shades to show-stopping statement designs in bold colours, we’ve rounded up the must-have hats at Fenwick. And to help you find the right one for you, we’ve enlisted the help of our expert Millinery buyers for their top tips and tricks.
In the search for the perfect occasion hat, Angela Basten, Senior Occasion Hats Buyer at Fenwick of Bond Street, Brent Cross and Bentalls Kingston advises "wherever possible shop with your full outfit" and to "try different shapes on – something that you never expected to suit you may just look right with your chosen outfit."
In terms of positioning, Becky Patsianas, Personal Shopper at Bentalls Kingston recommends to, "always tilt your hat to the right and let it sit 1cm above the eyebrow" as well as choosing a hat size and shape that compliments and balances out your figure.
To help you decide which styles to try, we've taken a closer look at the trends in store this season and chosen our favourite hats from each.
When looking for the perfect hat, classic shapes and neutral shades are always a safe bet. A chic, paired-back style will add a air of sophistication to your look. Angela advises "for a elegant look this spring, choose one of the new low crown and wide down, brim styles - which have a very forties Dior feeling ."
