The Classic Derby Style
Typically, derby hats 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. But what makes a ladies’ derby hat so special is, of course, its accessories. 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!
