 The Classic Derby Style

 Derby hats often feature a dramatic, surrounding brim with rounded crowns and lightweight straw bodies. Because the derby occurs in early May, spectators’ hats should be cool, breathable and done in spring colors. The most popular women’s derby hats are made with lightweight straw, especially parasol straw, sinamay straw and panama straw, in big, bright colors. Often fabrics can make the body of the big brim or cloche hat, with added layers of ruffles, bows and other design details. Derby hats are special when piled high with sweet silk flowers, elaborate ribbon embellishments, and brightly colored peacock feathers, there’s really no way to overdo a women’s Kentucky Derby hat. The higher the feathers, the better the hat!
