HATS CAN BE MADE IN ALMOST* ANY COLOUR THAT YOU LIKE
Bespoke hats are made to order, so if you are looking for one to match your shoes or dress then no problem.
*might be famous last words.. but we like a challenge!
HATS CAN BE MADE IN THE SAME SHADES AS YOUR DRESS, OR IN CONTRASTING SHADES TO COMPLIMENT.
There are a wealth of millinery suppliers to choose from across the country, who all stock various different trims and feathers in different shades, most of these are affordable and really accessible, so please don’t be scared to enquire about variations and possibilities.
HOW TO COLOUR MATCH & CHOOSE A COLOUR FOR YOUR OUTFIT
Stating the obvious, but the colour of hats are traditionally chosen to match either a shade in your dress/outfit or to match the accessories, so to match the colour of your shoes or handbag.
BUT you can also have fun with this too & choose completely different colours as long as they all compliment each other and the whole thing looks intentional. It all depends on how bold you want to go or just how comfortable you feel. Always trust your instincts, if it feels too much then it's not for you. Each to their own.
THE BEST PLACE TO START IS THE OUTFIT
With a patterned dress/outfit
It all depends on what you have already, so for example for a patterned dress with lots of colours, it's probably best to pick out one or two shades and keep it simple. If you use block colours for the accessories in one of the shades of the dress, it brings out the pattern more and draws attention to it.
For a block coloured outfit
BUT with a plain block coloured dress, or one with less colours, it doesn't necessarily need to be a matching hat with the exact same shade, you can definitely go for a completely different shade, as long as ALL the shades of your whole outfit compliment each other. So you can definitely have two different shades of colour for the hat that you love and then pick one of the shades for your shoes.
If you don't want to spend too much money on new accessories for an outfit then, see what shoes and handbag you already have and then get a hat in the shades to match.
For colour combo inspiration don't forget to see the colour chart section in the menu above! Swatch cards are also available to order in advance to check colours with an outfit before buying and the cost of these come off the price of any hat that you buy.
