The annual Not Forgotten Association Garden Party was held at Buckingham Palace yesterday. Hosted by the Duchess of Gloucester, the event is in support of the charity, which provides support for both current and former servicemen and women facing illness, injury or disability. She repeated her vibrant yale blue straw pillbox hat with a newly added swath of net veiling in the same colour
It’s a great hat for someone who doesn’t wear hats every day- the classic shape and colour lends the hat to successful pairing with many different ensembles and the scale suits Birgitte well. The addition of veil also adds a bit of formality and movement to the hat that benefit it.
Previously Worn: May 31, 2018
What do you think, dear readers- is this hat better with or without the veil?
