While 2013 was the year of the toque hat, 2014 was most certainly the year of the…
Here are some of the many pillbox hats we saw adorning royal heads last year:

I do like pillboxes. The best were 1. Princess Eugenie’s pillbox variation. It was so much more than just a pillbox! Lovely pink shade too.
2. Crown Princess Mary’s purple pillbox, simple, chic, and great colour on her. 3. Princess Laurentien’a camel, large-scale straw pillbox designed by Eudia, trimmed with autumn-hued pheasant feathers, because it offered a little more than ordinary pillboxes and the colour suited her.
Classic elegant picture hats would make my year!
Is it a pillbox the one worn by Princess Eugene???
It’s a pillbox variation, with an indented crown. It’s not a tall pillbox, but it can be considered a pillbox. The designer described it as a pillbox so that’s how we will label it as well!
Count me in the group that is hoping for big-brimmed hats to make a comeback.
Brilliant! Pillbox hats are my favourite so I’m chuffed! I hope there’s more next year!
I hope that cocktail hats will keep on replacing fascinators. I hate fascinators.
I also wish fashion reporters would stop calling EVERYTHING a fascinator.
Pillbox looks so clean and allows the face to show its beauty. They all look fine. I did not realize how many pillbox had been worn in 2014.
I likedthehat Queen Max wore last year …mostly a white hat with black brim…and not covered with decorations. Hope we see more of that type in 2015. Simple elegant and sophisticated. Queen Elizaeth looks so nice in uncluttered hats.
Mary’s is beautiful, as is Eugenie’s magenta number.
But for 2015 – please can we see big, brimmed hats make a real return please? I’m bored!
I totally agree. I am tired of teeny weeny hats – let’s hope for some lovely big picture hats this year!
Yes! Picture hats please!
I agree JamesB. I like pillboxes for variety but we saw too many last year. I prefer brimmed hats.
I like the classic and elegant look of a pillbox hat. I’m surprised how many different princesses and queens wore them last year!
Crown Princess Mary’s purple pillbox was my overall favorite, and I loved the outfit she wore it with too, right down to the purple shoes. I love pillboxes but we seemed to be deluged with them in 2014.
