See image below and click on the link for Fenwick of Bond Street's online feature.
However after my visit to Fenwicks it seemed hats were the order of the day as on my way to Victoria many headwear confections were seen around the perimeter of Buckingham palace as guests waited to be allowed entrance to the Queens Garden party, where the Duchess of Cambridge donned a Jane Taylor pillbox and netted hat along with the Alexander McQueen outfit she wore at Prince George's christening.
I even came across this image of Jean Shrimpton at Derby Day, Melbourne 1965, who even without an occasion hat, epitomises understated chic. See more of my favourite Race day ensembles below.

Hopefully you too will have been inspired for whichever Racing meet you're off to this season, and if it's not the Royal enclosure or Ladies day may even don this beautiful, overlooked accessory, the occasion hat.
