This is a great time of year to be in America. The pollen has somewhat subsided, but the weather is still lovely and the world has gone green and fresh. It also is a time that happens to coincide with a lot of awesome events, some of which have a style all their own. May 6th holds one such iconic occasion: the Kentucky Derby.
The derby is a horse race held Saturday May 6th, and it is a thrilling event not only for the thundering thoroughbreds. The occasion is also a special one for those who want to make a big statement with their fashion, and proper ladies and gentlemen line the stands adorned in the highest styles of the day.
This week, along with the derby hats we have in store, we are also highlighting “western” fashion such as cowboy hats. It is an all-American style that’s in this spring, so let’s check out what we have in store, shall we?
There is no hat so iconic to the US as the old time, ten-gallon cowboy hat. If this is your first time considering one of these, you might be shocked by just how much variety and flair is possible. Our selection includes a dizzying array of styles, materials, and price points. Whether or not you’ve ever saddled up your horse or moseyed on into a saloon, you can still get in on this great look. Let us rustle you up a new style and check out the whole herd of western styles and accessories to go with it!
The Derby has a kind of posh, elegant style that is deeply associated with the event. For ladies, one need only think of the “southern belle” archetype and you will have in your mind the idealistic beauty that this fashion captures. Flowers, frilly bows, and over the type arrangements are the norm. To help get an idea of just what we are talking about, check our or wide selection of so called “organza hats.” These feature floral colors, a lot of bows and lace, and definitely make a fashion statement. For men, think suave and retro and you will definitely be on the right track. For this, we have an enormous collection. From bowler caps to flat caps, fedoras and much more, you’ll find everything we need to create the ultimate “old school cool” look.
