You may have got the impression from the previous hat posts that we love dressing up and styling outfits - and you would be correct! Entering our friend Liz's fabulous hat shop in Tadcaster is like entering a sweetie shop - full of goodies and gorgeous rainbow colours!

Last time we looked at fancy race days - particularly with Royal Ascot in mind, but this time we are looking at styling for a mother of the bride - although neither of us has had that pleasure yet, indeed it isn't even on the horizon for our respective daughters who are too busy building their careers.

Anne H is wearing a fabulous creation in pale cream edged in black, which blends perfectly with her black lace dress and off white jacket from Mint Velvet.  She has accessorised with black and white shoes from LK Bennett and a black and white clutch from Coast. The bracelet is from a selection at Simply Devine.

Anne C's gorgeous feather hatinator (a cross between a hat and a fascinator) in champagne goes perfectly with her champagne Chesca dress (which she wore during the Christmas shoot - so a very versatile outfit). The couture hatinator is completely covered in a profusion of delicate feathers with pearl centres.

The rose gold drop earrings are her own, but bought from Simply Devine at Christmas.  She is holding one of Simply Devine's special occasion clutch bags in a deeper shade of champagne.

Anne H's hatinator is a very pale silver, made from sinemay, and beautifully trimmed with flowers, pearls and quills.  She is wearing it with a contrasting dress from Hobbs, bought some years ago. The silver clutch and bracelet are from the Simply Devine accessory collection. 
The navy blue hat (below) has a stunning display of gorgeous navy blue feathers.  Although Anne has worn full hats in the past, she now prefers hatinators, which work much better when wearing her hair in an updo.  The also successfully eliminate hat hair!

Anne H's gun metal grey hatinator trimmed with dark charcoal and pale blush pink silk flowers and feathers is one of our very favourites in the entire shop - and also comes in a lovely cobalt blue which we will feature next time!

The champagne and coffee hatinator she is wearing with her Chesca dress is covered beautifully with hundreds of little sequins so it shimmers and sparkles in the sunlight. This is more delicately trimmed than some of the others, but since the sinemay is patterned, it gives a more sophisticated vibe.

Another beautiful feather creation - this time in a very delicate pale blue.  With slightly less flowers than the champagne version, you can see more of the upturned brim, which is very flattering.  She is wearing it with a black James Lakeland chiffon dress with a fluted hem.

Finally Anne H is wearing a full hot pink hat, again beautifully trimmed with gorgeous feather and quills.  Her matching hot pink bag is another of Simply Devine's special occasion collection.  Anne's classic black suede court shoes are from Dune and pearl bracelet is from Simply Devine.
