There's no better occasion to wear eccentric hats than at a horse race! Have you ever wondered why people wear hats and fascinators to the races? (have a few minutes to your thoughts before I give you the answer....)
History Of Derby Hats
Racing was called the sport of Kings - as it is an expensive sport, people had to afford for horses and pay for people who ride them. In the early 1900s, horse racing was a sport for the elite and affluent only. It was also an occasion for the spectators to showcase their status and fashionability. It emphasises the carefully thought-out personal style, classic and cutting edge (famous movie that came to mind - My Fair Lady played by Audrey Hepburn). In 1960, people stopped wearing hats as a popular fashion but derby hats remained at the race course as an honour to the tradition. 
How To Choose The Right Hat
In order to consider an investment headpiece, first you need to think about your hair colour. If you wear a dark headpiece with dark hair, it will get lost in photographs or look like part of your hair! Always try to have some contrast :)
