Black Straw Boater Hat is an absolute classic black short boater hat. Otherwise know as a sailor hat or in contemporary times as a brimmed hat. This piece is unique in a black straw with black sequin applique across the brim, which adds that touch of class, style and fun. Just a little bit of bling!
This brim is a variation on the English “sailor” hat that has been worn for many years. Reminiscent of sculling down the Thames River in London , the short flat topped crown hat is balanced with a shorter brim.
An absolutely perfect hat for the Races, in particular for Derby Day during the Melbourne Cup Spring Racing carnival. For those looking to enter Fashions on the Field on Derby Day this gorgeous boater brim would certainly match perfectly with so many black and white outfits. Of course a black brim like this can be a stylish accessory to any colour outfit . Accordingly it could easily finish your wedding guest outfit or perhaps for some other special outdoors event.
A boater like this can be worn with your hair down or for the more classic formal look with your hair up in a bun.
A comb has been sewn on the inside of the brim to fit snugly into your hair. If required elastic can be added for further security.
