Essentials for Selecting the Perfect Hat for The Kentucky Derby

Essentials for Selecting the Perfect Hat for The Kentucky Derby

If you've never adorned your head with an elegant hat from The Hat Hive or been to a high-profile event like the Kentucky Derby, you might feel a tad overwhelmed. But, fret not, because when it comes to hats, especially those perfect for grand occasions, we're your go-to experts.

Essentials for Selecting the Perfect Hat for The Kentucky Derby 

Your ensemble for any prestigious event starts, and quite often ends, with the perfect hat. Here's what you need to know:

  1. Under the Shade One reason why hats are such a rage at events, like the Derby, is the sun's intense rays. Those beautiful, wide-brimmed hats aren't just for style – they’re practical! They provide shade and shield your skin from the sun's harmful UV rays. As you select your hat, consider pairing it with your favorite pair of sunglasses.

  2. Comfort is Key While sometimes style may come with a smidge of discomfort, remember that most high-profile events last for hours. It's essential to ensure your hat fits well and feels comfortable. So, for every hat you try on, envision wearing it for an extended period. If it feels uneasy, maybe it's time to consider another choice.

  3. Be the Center of Attention Hats are about making a statement. Even if you have a more reserved style, use these occasions as an opportunity to wear something striking. Every time we've donned a unique and bold hat, it's always led to unforgettable memories. So, dare to be different!

  1. Bigger Often Means Better The saying "Go big or go home" couldn't be more apt when choosing a hat. While smaller hats have their charm, expansive, bold hats truly leave an impression. They're not just a style statement; they're also more functional, offering better sun protection.

  2. Choose What Resonates With You Ultimately, a hat reflects your personal style. What suits one may not necessarily suit another. This is why we advocate trying on hats in person. We invite you to visit our Michigan Avenue showroom and explore our exquisite collection. If you can't make it in person, drop us a line, and we'll guide you virtually.

So, whether it's the Derby, a polo match, or any grand affair, with The Hat Hive, you're always one step closer to turning heads and stealing the spotlight.
