Back in 2005, Princess Alexandra attended the wedding of the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall in a pale lilac hat with high, domed crown around which was wrapped a three-layered sash.
Two years later, she wore the same hat and jacket to the Epsom Races.
Aside from jewellery and a neck ties, the outfits are the very same. The difference here is the angle at which she placed the hat- a tilt of only a few degrees that results in a surprisingly different look. We have seen Princess Alexandra in a number of tall crowned hats recently which has sparked some debate among readers about if they truly work for her or not. The varied placement of this piece adds another dimension to this conversation and I’m curious if you give this high crowned design a thumbs up or not. What do you think?
