Le Chapeau

Any woman who has worn a fashion hat knows the experience is special. Wide brim, netted, with floral adornments; fashion hats are true show stoppers. British woman lead by example and never shy away from vivid colours and large scale accompaniments when donning a fashion hat. 
Oddly enough, when I was in my twenties I wore many large scale hats with beautiful flowers, ribbons, netting. Maybe it was the fashion at the time :: I honestly don't recall. But I do know how incredible it felt when I wore one of my pretty chapeau's.
Here are a few of my favourites from some of the best designers in the world  ::

This hat is so spectacular and deserves to be worn with a simple, elegant dress so that nothing distracts from it.

Large pore netting romantically frames the face.

Thankfully gone are the days when a cigarette was chic. The chapeau is Sooo chic.                                               

Bare shoulders frame this incredible hat.
