Derby-worthy hats

Jewelry & Accessories

Conde Nast Digital Studio

Tomorrow is the Kentucky Derby, which I suppose most people know as the start of horse racing season and the quest for the Triple Crown. I, however, know it as an over-the-top hat festival. This season at bridal market we saw the accessory make its way into wedding fashion. Carolina Herrera showed this Avant-guard accessory (top, left) at the beginning of her show, and toned it down a little bit with this white, floppy number (top middle) that would be perfect for a summer affair, while Melissa Sweet outfitted both brides and bridesmaids in straw fedoras like this one (top right). —Cari Wolfert
