Summer Event Hats

If your summer social calendar is filling up fast it’s time to get yourself a suitably polished hat. Fair-weather weddings, Pimm's-filled garden parties and, of course, Royal Ascot, all call for the occasion accessory. The high street has come up trumps with a vast array of headwear that would give even the most established milliners a run for their money and are perfect for a statement-making accent.

If you're after something avant-garde, look to John Lewis’ own collection for a vibrant yellow pillbox or opt for the Dita for an oversized-brimmed fuschia number that comes topped with black plumes, while those who prefer a more traditional option should sample the sculptural fascinators by Jacques Vert. And in need of inspiration on how to style? Look to our very own Duchess of Cambridge, who undoubtedly always wears it well.
