Hats

Its seems that every spring, the number of luncheons for which hats are de rigueur, if not almost mandatory, increases. No one dons them better than H-Town's lunching ladies. With all the possibilities in spring 2016, we've perused our photos and selected a few of the best of fancy millinery.

The variety of choices came from the Easter Seals "Hats Off to Mothers," Hermann Park Conservancy's "Hats in the Park," the River Oaks Country Club Men's Clay Court Championships luncheon and Tootsies fashion show, and the premiere Bayou Bend Collection luncheon in a glamorous tent on the lawn of the historic home.

Check out the photos that include everything from the special to the sublime. Special thanks to photographer Will LeBlanc of Casablanca Productions for inspiring this concept with his hat portraits from the River Oaks event.
