With the multi-million pound refurbishment of John Lewis Milton Keynes well underway, we asked head of accessories buying for John Lewis, Amanda Scott, for advice on how to find the perfect hat this summer - just in time for the wedding and racing season.


“With the royal wedding last year and the Duchess of Cambridge stepping out in a stream of gorgeous headwear, lots of our customers are getting increasingly adventurous when it comes to choosing hats. Tere are a few handy tips to make sure you choose the right hat for you:

Fascinators were not allowed in the Royal Enclosure at Ascot this year, meaning oversized shapes are taking centre stage. For a strong look, opt for bold colours, such as tangerine or fuchsia. Look out for extra detailing on headwear such as trims and riffs in directional styles to stand out from the crowd.


It is important that the hat flatters your face shape and your silhouette. Large, wide brim hats suit heart shaped faces and slim line silhouettes, while on-trend smaller pillar box hats suit longer face shapes and

more detailed outfits. As a general rule, the brim of your hat should never be wider than the width of your shoulders.


“We have a wide range of hats in our revamped womenswear department and are always on hand to help you pick the perfect outfit: if you’re thinking of trying a new look, we offer free two-hour fashion consultations,” Amanda added. With the whole department store undergoing a revamp, the new look womenswear will


see a host of new brands added, including Sea Salt, Kaliko and Chesca. Te eagerly anticipated exclusive Alice Temperley range for John Lewis will be available in September.
