Zara and Mike Tindall were the only royal attendees today at the third day of the Cheltenham Festival, both sporting wonderful new hats. Zara’s hat, in the most beautiful shade of peacock blue, is described by the designer as a “hand-blocked teardrop-shaped perching peachbloom felt pillbox hat… trimmed with bow tails, 3 degrade dyed quills and a leather camelia.”
Percher hats remain at the height of current fashion and Zara carries them so well. This hat is a fantastic colour on her and I adore its styling with her black base, grey Escada coat, and slightly lighter blue purse- the hat becomes the ensemble’s focus point with a punctuation of bright colour.
Previously Worn: This hat is new
For those of you wishing to see more royal men don hats, Mike Tindall seems to have heard your suggestion and attended the races today in a grey wool coogan cap. The informal feel of the hat is a great fit for an afternoon at the races and I love that Mike coordinated its colour to his wife’s coat.
Designer: Holland Cooper Baker Boy Cap
This is my favourite hat on Zara so far this week- what do you think of it? And, did any non-royal hats catch your eye at the races today?
