When people consider the Kentucky Derby, fashion and hats come to mind practically instantly. When you know exactly how the tradition of Kentucky Derby hats started, it is easier to find a wonderful hat for the occasion. So simply exactly how did it all begin? Let's travel back with time to learn!

The first Kentucky Derby was held in 1875, in exactly what is described as the mid-Victorian period. During that time, a woman was not considered to be properly dressed if she left her house without a hat on her head and gloves on her hands. Who knows who understood who she may see and be seen by, so she needed to be effectively attired! Men were not properly dressed without a top hat. Even little children and children wore bonnets. Only paupers went without hats!

Hat designs for women varied from straightforward straw or cloth bonnets to wide brimmed hats with brief crowns. Plumes were thought about condition symbols. To put on a hat with a plume made the statement that one was economically well-to-do. So treasured were plumes that rare birds were being hired purely for their feathers, and this drew the concern of groups in both the United States and England, particularly when whole stuffed birds began being used to embellish ladies's dress hats. Shortly thereafter, only feathers from specific common birds might legitimately be used on hats. All other feathers were banned from use.

Today, there are hats embellished with other items, too, such as beads, butterflies, and birds. And some people are breaking from the conventional wide-brimmed hat style. Ladies derby hats now additionally consist of bucket, kettle, and sinamay design hats decorated with all sorts of things from feathers and boas, to flowers, bows, birds in a nest, and even little plastic horses. A gorgeous hat not only exhibits class, it makes the wearer feel lovely. When you truly wish to look your finest, the right hat could really make a distinction.
