Dating back to the 1800s, wearing a sun hat to the races is a long held tradition still in practice today. Besides being worn to protect against the sun, the upper class would wear a hat to show off their personal style.
At Olga Berg, we stock a curated edit of our favourite wide brim sun hats. A sun hat is the perfect accessory to daytime events and functions outdoors. Not only will they complete your outfit, but they also serve the dual purpose of sun protection (most important in Australia!)
Add a women’s wide brim sun hat to your outfit when you’re attending the races, off to a daytime wedding, or heading to a formal tea party. The more extravagant the better we say! We adore the Anika Lace Trimmed Boater, a wide brim straw hat for daytime formal events. With white or black lace overlay and matching pearls, it easily adds a touch of elegance to any formal event look.
How to wear a wide brim hat
The best way to wear our boater hats is to wear it slightly tilted- either at the front or off to the side. Consider a low up-do style for your hair to keep the emphasis on your gorgeous hat. Our straw hats are ultra versatile and with the white or black lace touch will go with any outfit.
