Coundown To The Best New Royal Hat of 2015

2015 best hat small

As we narrow down to our favourite new royal hats of 2015, here are links to all of the semifinal polls currently open:

Belgium
British Royals Part 1
British Royals Part 2
Denmark
Japan Part 1
Japan Part 2
Luxembourg and Norway
Monaco, Greece, Dubai and Qatar
The Netherlands
Sweden

Voting on all polls is now open and will remain so until January 1, 2016 at midnight GMT. You can vote for multiple hats in each poll up to four times per day. The ten hats with the most votes will move forward to the final! Happy voting.

While Japanese royals saw no less than 65 new hats this year, their characteristically demure pillboxes and bowlers play to a different aesthetic than other Western Royals and it feels unfair to make comparisons. As such, I have not included them in this countdown. We will certainly include several Imperial royals in upcoming conversations about our favourite individual royal millinery style.

  1. The Best New Royal Hat of 2015 polls have been great fun, so thanks HatQueen for putting in the hard yards. I can hardly wait to see the top 10. I think the list compiled by Splendid Jewels is pretty near what the end result will be, based on my analysis of the voting. I can’t narrow it down to just 10 hats in order to compile a personal list of favorites!

    HatQueen could we have a separate vote for best new Japanese Imperial hat of 2015? The family did have some great new hats this year and a few of them ventured out of their comfort zone. I am thinking of hats like Princess Nobuko of Mikasa’s navy Breton hat; Princess Hisako of Takamado’s unusual purple brimless moulded hat; Empress Michiko’s teal blue domed saucer, which matched her suit fabric; and Crown Princess Masako’s pale gold moire taffeta hat, just to name a few.

  2. The Best New Royal Hat of 2015 was a great idea HatQueen and thank you very much for delivering this. I consider the top 10 hats should be:
