Queen Elizabeth was spotted today enjoying Champions Day at Ascot Racecourse in her repeated royal blue silk cloque fabric covered hat with flared crown, slim hatband and downward sloped brim with kettle edge wrapped in black faux fur.
There’s still much to like about this design, beginning with its brilliant colour and contrast. Interestingly, the first two outings of this ensemble included a blue and white floral printed dress that was replaced today by an unprinted on in just barely a shade darker royal blue than the hat and coat. The resulting look is more streamlined and increases the impact of the faux fur trim, which works so well for an autumn or winter look.
What do you think- does this hat pair better with the floral dress or this solid blue one?
