Last Thursday, January 30, Princess Benedikte of Denmark attended the 60th anniversary of Benediktegården, a nursery and day care center named in her honor. Benedikte wore a tan wool hat with striking abstract pattern inlaid into the crown of the hat. While I am not partial to the colour of this hat, I love the inlaid pattern and think it is a very effective way to make a traditional hat shape look contemporary and very striking. What do you think of this hat?

I love the hat and the color too. But I am a neutral color kind of gal.
Oh, I’m in the minority here, but I don’t like the shape of this hat on her, nor the abstract pattern on it. Not from above where you can see the pattern properly and neither from below where you see only these funny little end bits seemingly coming from her head.
She’s always so elegant and usually I love her hat choices, but this is not my cup of tea at all…
I don’t like the color of the dress, but the hat is an excellent choice. Also like its shape: it’s a good ratio of width to height.
How very elegant PB looks, this is just marvelous on her. Love the hat and the twist, this is outside the box for sure.
Like the hat very much, but agree this is not Ben’s best color.
This really suits her. Normally I think beige washes people out but this doesn’t. But her best accessory is her smile 🙂
Princess Benedikte is a lovely woman and has a charming smile, but I do not care for this hat. It is too round for my taste and I do not care for the colour.
I don’t think the color is very flattering but aside from that this is a very nice hat. It’s nice to see an interesting hat that does not have an explosion of feathers.
I totally agree!
Love both the color and hat…
How lovely! Benedikte looks beautiful. I like the twist – it’s very spiffy!
I really like the hat, but not the color.
Very nice and charming
Now that is a really nice hat! I love the applique on it.
