A Guide to Hat Wearing for Ascot
‘Wearing a hat to the races adds a stylish flair. When choosing a hat, you must fit the feel of the hat to stay true to your style. Get creative and have fun!’ -Philip Treacy Obe
‘The perfect complement to my hat is a gorgeous lipstick, try a bold orange-red tone. If you have shorter hair, tuck the sides back for a clean look.’ -Awon Golding
‘Hair is better worn back and away from the face. Step out of your comfort zone; it is important to be bold with your hat at Royal Ascot.’ -Rachel Trevor Morgan
‘Elegance and femininity is achieved through details that complement your hat. Polka dots are fun and visually engaging. Team it with romantic colours to create sophistication.’ -Monique Lee
‘The brim can be any size but try not to have any wider than your shoulders. Style your hats to nearly touch your eyebrow. Tilt brimmed hats to sweep just above your eye.’ -Cara Meehan
‘Try tipping the angle of the hat for a more jaunty look. Small hats look best perched just above the eyebrow. Wear your hat with pride!’ -Jess Collett
‘Wear small hats low, grazing the forehead on the right side. Perch the hat forward, over the right eyebrow, for added allure.’ – Alexandra Harper
‘I believe that a hat for Royal Ascot has to be glorious and extravagant. It’s the one week of the year that you can truly shine and express yourself.’ -Stephen Jones OBE
