The punchy green and pink scheme on the hat is so well balanced by Zara’s cream shirtwaist dress with fun buttons that linked to the hat and other pink accessories. The pieces combine again to make a standout overall look for Zara.

The whimsical hat is an unexpected pairing for this dress, but that’s what makes it work so well. Pair the hat with a floral ensemble and it would be difficult to keep the look from falling to twee. Here, the hues pull together while the edginess of the dress balances the frothy, fun hat. I’ll admit it’s not something I would wear but it’s so interesting to admire and Zara deserves kudos for carrying it off so flawlessly.

We’ve not seen this hat since its debut six years ago and while it’s not her most vibrant, it’s lovely to see again. I just wish we had a closeup view of the back!

Cheltenham Festival 2022 Day 1

The first day of this year’s Cheltenham Festival kicked off today with a trio of royal hats. Zara Tindall wore a beautiful plum button beret percher trimmed with a coordinating silk abaca swirl with hand painted gold stripe. Her husband Mike wore a black newsboy cap with curved visor brim.

Zara’s hat is the standout here- the colour is magnificent and that gold stripe on the silk abaca is a simple touch that elevates the entire look. While this style of hat is one we’ve seen on her many times before, the scale, trim and colour of this one make it standout on its own. We don’t often see royal hats styled with trousers and this ensemble, which is so beautifully balanced, shows how fantastic the look can be when done just right.
