This is why blue is such a popular colour!

Blue is one of the most popular colours I see in my shop, from navy to Wedgwood, aqua to cobalt; there is a shade of blue that suits each & every person. I thought I’d share some lovely blue occasion wear hats to inspire us & show some wonderful colours that work well with too… check these out!

Navy blue works really well for so many people; it can be less harsh than black too.

Meghan wore this sumptuous velvet blue hat, with a full head veil too. It’s a lovely rich shade of blue, worn in November.

Lady Sarah Chatto at Prince Harry & Meghan Markle’s wedding wears this navy hat; but the open weave of the brim adds a real lightness to the design & shows that navy blue can be worn in the spring & summer too.

Theresa May wore this unusual navy blue hat at Westminster Abbey in 2019. I love the quirky shape of the hat & think the natural feathers show how well taupe work with this shade.

I think the most popular colour combination though is Navy Blue & Ivory; this hat really suits Princess Anne.

Usually it’s better to have a brighter white with royal blue though, rather than a cream or ivory. You can see with Princess Diana’s beautiful hat, just how that crispness really works.

Again the pretty little puff of feathers decorating this hat, worn in 2017 are a nice crisp white to really stand out. But having the black edges really does make this a bold look.

The Queen looks fabulous in this striking royal blue & black hat; I think it shows how nicely royal blue works with so many different colours.

Royal blue & hot pink are a wonderful colour combination; this was worn at Royal Ascot 2014.

Sophie Wessex teamed royal blue with beautiful peacock feathers here; the feathers have lots of blue in them so this really works well.

But possibly my favourite royal blue colour combination is when it is teamed with red. You would be forgiven for thinking that red wouldn’t work with other shades of blue… but this lady certainly proves us wrong.

Pale blue & red are not two colours that people may not automatically put together but they work so well! This outfit was worn at Ascot in 2017.

Again we see this lovely pale blue shade with a shade of red; a deeper type of burgundy. Isn’t it beautiful?

This pale blue is a lovely shade, and this hat shows how you can have different textures of the same colour, which really gives a very interesting finish to a design.

Camilla wears her hats so well; I think she looks fabulous in this hat.  This pale blue works very well with a lovely subtle silver too!

Or you could go really bold & team it with yellow!

Following on from this, this blue hatinator has lots of peacock feathers in it, which really highlight the citrus colour of the dress. I love the boldness of these colour palettes.

But once again we see navy blue as a decoration this time though. This lovely pale blue, teamed with a navy blue veiling was worn to the French royal wedding last year.

This navy blue works really well as a nice trim here with this aqua blue, reminding us that it’s not the lead colour on all occasions.

In 1993 Princess Diana wore this striking aqua & white ensemble. I did love the vibrancy of her wardrobe.

Embed from Getty Images
Again we see how well royal blue works with many shades as it is teamed up with aqua; it is so striking.

This is a more unusual hat worn by the Queen in 2018; with it’s high crown & flat edged brim, teaming blue & aqua really does make this a wonderful piece. I’d say this was more of a wedgewood blue, which has more lilac tones to it.

Autumn Kelly wore this beautiful wedgewood blue saucer hat at Royal Ascot 2019.

Here the Queen trims her white hat with a lovely wedgewood blue, it’s quite crisp isn’t it?

As this blue has lilac tones in it, it obviously works beautifully with soft pink too.

Embed from Getty Images
But possibly my favourite colour combination with this tone has to be this lovely grass green!

This green hat has been trimmed with a blue polka dot fabric & I think it is fabulous!

 

So as you can see there is a vast range of shades of blues & they all work with so many different different colours too! But here are a few more photos of some lovely blue hats that I have found & wanted to share!

This style pillbox hat really suits Sophie Wessex, & we’ve seen her in them a lot recently. This was worn in December 2019.

I love the shade of blue that the Queen wears here in May 2019.

I just love the fun bow at the front of the hat, so had to share this image!

I think this is is a really lovely & fun hat worn by the Queen in 1982.

I couldn’t really end a blog on blue hats without some images of the late Queen Mother. I think it was always well known that her favourite colour was blue & we saw her in so many shades.

This veiled hat was worn in 1988.

And finally this cobalt blue hat, trimmed with a rainbow fabric in 1986.
