Take a cue from Meghan Markle and don a stunning Easter hat this spring

There was a time when every new Easter outfit was topped with a beautiful spring hat for a finished look. And, I am happy to say that thanks in part to the stylish Meghan Markle, the time for an Easter hat has returned!

Hats for spring 2018 are bigger and better than ever. It’s the perfect opportunity to indulge in a fantasy confection like one of those pictured above.

Wondering where to start? If budget is no issue, then one of the best milliners alive today is Philip Treacy. Treacy is well-known for his memorable (and occasionally over-the-top) designs. He is a favorite of many celebrities and even England’s royal family (Markle sported a Philip Treacy hat for her first royal outing. CLICK HERE to see the lovely felted wool hat.)

My own Easter hats (as well as fancy horse show hats and simple straw beach hats) are generally sourced locally (That’s Hats in Chadds Ford, PA, recently closed and much missed, was one of the best).  But, you can also shop at all major department stores. Macy’s offers some very affordable, but lovely options including many selections from August Hats, as well as practical, packable versions by Nine West. (All three of my picks above are from Macy’s.)

Etsy also has a vast selection of amazing hats by incredibly talented artisans. One of my favorites is QESC, which offers classic sinamay hats and jaunty fascinators.

Hats off to Easter!
