Racing, Easter, birthday and abdication events in April brought us a number of new hats. Before we are completely distracted by Royal Ascot, we’re going to take a minute and look back two months to choose our favourite.
Please click on each caption or photo link to jump to original feature posts with additional views, information and discussion on each hat. Here are the eight hats we most admired in April, shown in the order they were worn:
