Derby Hats

John Marine | 11:25 PM | | | |
With the #KyDerby coming up, I figured I'd discuss derby fashion. More importantly- those flamboyant hats worn by fashionistas. Derby hats are the focal point of this blog post, especially feminine ones. These are big and expressive hats with fancy designs to them. What makes these hats unique are their fancy designs. These are extra girly designs that are almost more suited for pictures or runway models than real people. Some of these eccentric designs on these usually wide-brimmed hats include various frills, flowers, ribbons, and all other kinds of adornments. Sometimes, a derby hat seems like they could overwhelm womens' heads or seem like they are going to eat one's head from the top on down. It is their unique appeal that makes them fashionable.

To be honest, I had intended to be about derby fashion in general, but I decided instead to focus on derby hats worn by women.

Derby Hat Examples.

How do derby hats look? Here are some examples:

Final Thoughts.

A wide-brimmed hat will nicely shield your head and neck from damaging sun rays. These derby hats are stylishly flamboyant to help you look your best as you watch those horses race their way around the horse racing track. The fact that people will go to crazy lengths to make such intricate hats make derby hats all the more enticing. If you do go ahead and try to make as crazy of a hat as possible, have fun and let your imagination run wild! I don't hate derby hats unless someone just makes a ludicrous looking hat.

Since this post was created in advance of the 2015 Kentucky Derby, I'd like to wish good luck to all participants in the Kentucky Derby. I love horses, but I'm not really the horse racing type. You probably like them. So if you do, I'm sure you'll enjoy the horse racing at the Kentucky Derby. Anyhow, Subscribe and Follow my blog(s) if you enjoy my work.
