The top millinery trends for 2017



Wider brims

Beaded and embellished headbands


Rose Gold & Gold


Pearl trims


Now that you have the trends list, it’s time to go shopping and pick the right headpiece for your racing outfit.

To make life super easy I’ve picked 3 of my favs for each race day. I have your back ladies, so here they are.


With Black and white as your base colour, it’s tradition to go one of two ways. Classic and chic or outrageously fabulous. I play the outrageously fabulous card on Derby day personally. I like a wow factor.

The race that stops the nation! It’s a day of colour, elegance and what better way to shine than with some metal. I’m loving the star trend for cup day!

It may be known as family day but that does not stop the fashions. I always find it’s the day of hats and more structured headpieces. The last day in the sun is always relaxed but chic.
