Kentucky Derby Hats

in, Fashion

Out of all the sporting events in the world, I think the Kentucky Derby may be the most elegant. It’s on my bucket list to go to the iconic event, but not just for the race itself; it’s all about the hats! This weekend, ladies from around the world will don both functional and flashy hats per the tradition of the first Saturday in May.

The hats range from classy and chic to wild and outrageous. A quick Google search proved that at its peak of popularity in the late 1800’s hats at horse races was just the thing to do. Ever since then the tradition stuck, particularly at the most famous horse race– the Kentucky Derby.

Now while I’m not dressing to the nines and heading to Churchill Downs for the Derby this weekend, I can still dream! Just for fun, I pulled some of the prettiest, and affordable, hats that could be worn all summer long, no matter the occasion.
