Editor’s 10 Picks for Springtime Ladies’ Hats

Ladies hat to wear at a spring tea party, Kentucky Derby, Easter luncheon, or Sunday church.

Ladies’ Hats Made of Fabric

One approach is to channel a Hollywood glam look a la Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn, or Sophia Loren. We found these 5 quite similar styles of a traditional wide-brimmed fabric hat (usually organza), trimmed with flouncy wired ruffles and bows. Simply choose which color will complement your outfit: bright blue (1), yellow gold (2), black and golden flower (3), or pastel pink (4). Or perhaps opt for a special design feature, like this pink foldable hat (5) with a double layer of organza and gauze.

Straw or Sinamay Hats Ladies’ Hats

Less flamboyant but definitely springtime pretty would be one of these pastel-colored polyester straw hats we found. Choose from varied styles, like a wide-brimmed floppy hat (6) adorned with flowers, a cute cloche hat (7) in perky aqua with matching feathers, a crisp white creation (8) featuring a striking pleated accent, or a sweet peach number (9) with an upturned brim. For something truly different, why not try a pillbox fascinator (10) made of sinamay in classic navy with feather trimmings?

Styling Tips for a Spring Outfit with a Hat

Seeing these lovely possibilities for completing your spring party look with a hat, here are some styling tips to keep in mind.

  1. Even if you’re not much of a dress person, now is your chance! Choose a pretty floral frock or sundress, or one in a crisp white fabric. It will look so pretty with a hat!
  2. Try on varied hat choices before you decide on one for a party. Depending on your body frame, your facial features, even the cut of your hair, a big floppy hat may overpower your look. While a more compact style may work just fine.
  3. If you want the hat to be your style statement, consider a bold, bright color or one with a fancy embellishment. You can downplay your accessories to less showy earrings and just a simple necklace.
  4. For a garden party, bridal or baby shower, Easter brunch or luncheon, a neutral or pastel-colored hat would be a perfect complement to the spring season.

For a tea party, it might be nice to give a nod to English tradition with a perky pillbox hat or a fancy fascinator. You could pair it with a demure ivory clutch and perhaps a sheer silk shawl in case there’s a bit of chill in the air.

Hats off to you, then, for choosing a “hats on” look for your social engagements this spring!
