A hat is a head covering. It may be worn for
1. protection against the elements
2. safety 3. a fashion accessory . (wikipedia definition)
First image: Hat as Fashion Accessory ( and Major Statement!)
Second Image: Hat as Personal Safety
( A giant rolled table napkin / serviette always helps protect
ones silk suit with all those popping Champagne corks !)
Third Image: Hat as Protection Against the Elements
( raindrops should never touch couture!)
Fourth Image: Hat As Total Body Covering for Safety
( Chain Mail is back -
the streets are full of numerous dangers!)
New York City may have its Easter Parade , but NO ONE does hats
like the Brits. Our first two photos are of Florence Claridge on
Ladies Day at Ascot: she's known for a quarter century of
outrageous hats at that British Bastion of Hat Heaven.
The second two photos are Philip Treacy hats done for
Alexander McQueen ( both Brits, of course).
Here's hoping your Easter is topped off with the perfect
multi tasking fashion accessory ... . and it doesn't rain on your
parade or easter egg hunt !
