New year, new milliner to Lizzie's Hats

As we approach a busy time of year with Cheltenham, Aintree and Royal Ascot bookings starting already I feel excited for the year ahead.

After our annual sale, we have gradually been adding to our autumn/winter collection this year and have some new headpieces available to view on our website.

With regards to the spring/summer collection, we’re very excited to announce a new milliner, KJ Millinery, to our Collection with 30 new pieces on their way. There are some wonderful pieces coming in particularly bold colours. One of the trends this year is ostrich feathers and they are popular at the moment so keep an eye out for any new pieces with these as decoration. Headbands are also really popular at the moment but I have to be honest and although I have a few designs, they are not my favourite style. There are however some really beautiful headband designs out there, but I think you need to make sure that they really suit you and that they are of a high quality. Emily London, Juliette Botterill and Justine Bradley-Hill have some lovely headbands in their collections.

The Pantone colour of the year is ‘living coral’ which happens to be my favourite colour! Within the collection, we have many pieces in different tones of coral to view on the website.

Amongst other new pieces by various milliners, I will also be getting some more designs in by Dawn Guibert who is one of my favourite milliners and I have been working with her from the moment I started my business. It is always exciting getting a bespoke design from her, as she is exceptional in my opinion.

I look forward to seeing you all at Lizzie’s hats in the season to come and please remember to share photos of your special day and outfits when wearing one of our hats.
