Blue Formal Hats for Women

Get ready for the occasion with blue formal hats for women, elegantly crafted in understated or embellished styles to perfectly match your outfit.

Whether you are getting ready for a day at the races or are attending a special wedding, formal hats are ideal for finishing your look. They add a touch of glam to your outfit and make you look ready for special occasions.

Hats or Fascinators?

Although hats are a tradition for ladies outfits, it is becoming increasingly popular to opt for fascinators instead. Fascinators take the hat style and attach a smaller section to a headband to add a more subtle look. They also have a more contemporary style so are well-suited to the younger woman or those who are super stylish.

Really, it depends on your look, style and preference as you may choose an elegant feathered fascinator or a large bow-embellished sinamay hat.

Colour Pairing

If you're looking to match a blue formal hat with a blue outfit, you have to be very careful on colour matching to make sure they are complementary or matching shades. The colour being slightly off can affect your whole outfit.

Blue is perfect for adding a pop of colour to a more simple tone and pairs beautifully with monochrome colour schemes. If your outfit is multicoloured, pick out a blue tone in the scheme to match your hat to tie in with your look.


Nowadays, a lot of formal hats are crafted from sinamay, which is a woven fabric that is stiff to hold the hat's shape. Sinamay is also great for crafting into elegant bows and twirls to embellish the hats.

Other details on hats and fascinators are often feather and bead embellishments to add some glamour to the occasion. Choose patterned mesh for a lightweight detail that will bring beauty and personality to your outfit.
