Best Repeated Royal Hat: January 2016

2016 best repeat small

As introduced yesterday, we’re going to narrow down our favourite royal hats of 2016 by choosing favourites every month. Because some of our favourite designs of the year might be repeated hats, we’re going to include these in their own series of polls. As there are usually too many repeated hats every month to feature in a single poll, I will draw finalists from the hats that receive a particularly warm response in your comments.

Looking back over the repeated hats we saw in January, seven were met with particularly high praise. Click on any of the photos below to jump back to original posts with additional photos and information:

Voting will remain open until February 15 at midnight GMT and each computer or mobile device may vote once per day for as many hats as you like. Results will remain hidden until the poll closes. Happy voting!

  1. Queen Máxima in that black wide-brimmed Garbo hat by Fabienne Delvigne in Photo 2 was my choice for 2nd Place in the Best New Royal Hat of 2015 Poll and it’s my top choice today.
