Sometimes we see royal hats worn with dramatically different ensembles but other times, the changes between different pairings are more subtle. The latter is true of two outfits we’ll look at today, both worn by the Duchess of Cornwall and both paired with her Philip Treacy designed royal purple felt boater hat with pleated frayed-edge fringe trim and feather spray.
Look #1: With a purple A-line dress and fitted jacket with beaded v-neck collar worn seven times so far (October 27, 2009; October 27, 2009; March 8, 2010; October 26, 2010; March 12, 2012; October 27, 2016; and March 13, 2017)
Look #2: With a purple dress coat with double fringe trimmed Peter Pan collar purple fringe collar worn five times so far (March 26, 2012; December 25, 2012; March 21, 2013; March 3, 2015; and November 11, 2018
