Queen Elizabeth was all smiles yesterday at the Guards Polo Club at Smith’s Lawn to attend the Royal Windsor Cup polo match and a carriage driving display by the British Driving Society.
For these events, she repeated her lime straw hat with tall crown and short, sideswept brim. The hat is trimmed with a lime crepe silk hatband in the same fabric as her coat and a handmade straw flower.
Despite its small sale, this hat’s unique crown and brim shapes, vibrant colour and oversize flower trim make a statement. The streamlined coat works so well to balance the hat and the delicate floral print on the dress sweetens ensemble’s overall impact (it’s a lot of lime!). The overall look is a lighthearted one that the queen wears well.
What do you think of this lime hat on its fourth outing yesterday?
