Re-use, recycle. One outfit, three hats, three (slightly) different looks.
When you find something you love, there's no reason not to wear it more than once. I found this vintage 1980s Chanel suit via an Insta post and, as luck would have it (maybe not for my credit card...), it fit perfectly.
I first wore it to Royal Ascot 2017 on Gold Cup Day (centre), where it was described in one newspaper as "nautical", in part due to the little anchor charm @bigdrewdle had found me the day before. I took it with me to the Melbourne Cup that same year (left), but upped the 80s vibe and made a new hat inspired by Princess Diana, with wider silk ties. I then put it away for a while, but pulled it out this year to wear to the Friday of Glorious Goodwood, where they have a blue and white theme. As Goodwood is a tad more relaxed, I wore a floral boater (and added the striped band) and pearls to soften the look a little. And all throughout, I wore the same shoes and bag.
