It’s that time of year again. We’ll soon pile into our busses, stumble to the white tents and casually forget that we’re even in Great Meadows for a horse race at all. Because, simply, the hats! Look at the hats!
Do you have your Gold Cup head attire yet? How about your other Gold Cup essentials? Channel your inner Kate Middleton with either a statement headband or enormous brim. Here are my top picks.
Statement Head Pieces
Worship the sun by wearing yellow this year. My dress will be yellow, in fact. Why not make a real statement with a bold silk flower with netting? Jane Tran, $125, also available at Proper Topper in Georgetown.
Or class it up with a large bow on a headband. Jane Tran, $99, also available at Proper Topper in Georgetown.
I am so in love with this neutral Louise Green rafia hat with navy silk bow. I would wear this all summer, never mind the Gold Cup. Louise Green, $195, also available at Proper Topper in Georgetown.
Or shop on Etsy for inexpensive hand-made cottage hats, like this Tiffany’s Rose Derby summer hat, only $35.
