Head-Turning Hats Inspired By Kentucky-Derby Fashion


You don’t have to be headed to the Kentucky Derby this weekend to rock your very own statement-making hat. Investing in a topper rendered in a bold color or adorned with embellishments is a no-brainer way to add interest to your outfit if you’re working with one that needs a slight pick-me-up. Since you probably won’t get too much wear out of a headpiece bedecked in whimsical ornaments and larger-than-life florals, here are 10 must-haves that’ll still get you noticed—in a good way.
