Royal Ascot Hats

Posted on

This week most of our customers have been looking for hats & fascinators to wear at Royal Ascot, and all of our spring/ summer 2019 deliveries are now in.

The etiquette for this occasion is that the a hat ( or fascinator ) base must be at least >10cms or 4 inches in diameter, particularly in the royal enclosure. This is not essential for other parts of the racecourse, and it doesn't matter how it's held in place (ie hats with a shallow crown & headbands are acceptable).

Many of our customers have come in for a myriad of wonderful colours particularly electric blue, coral, blush and emerald greens.

If you're unsure whether the hat you require will be suitable for ascot, call into the shop with your outfit and we're happy to assist you. Please note we will not use digital images for colour matching as every screen shows colours slightly differently.

P.S. On the day at the races don't forget your umbrella if it looks like rain, as many hat fabrics are ruined if they get wet!
