April usually brings us a series of new hats as we transition from winter to spring fashions and this year was no different. Eight designs – perchers, boaters, saucers, a fedora, a boater, a beret and a cloche – stood out as particularly successful, based on your comments, and it’s now time to choose a favourite from this group.
