Easter bonnet style – Weekly Wishlist

Remember making Easter bonnets? How much fun was that? Make one if you like this Easter, but you might look a wee bit odd wandering about with a crepe paper and fake flower bonnet on. It’s not the Easter bonnet style we’re looking for.

Here’s how to get some proper Easter bonnet style – buy a hat! Hats are a great invention – they look fab, and they protect your head from the elements – rain and sun. (There are issues in the wind, but that’s for another day).

So, what would be your Easter bonnet style? A straw hat is a holiday musthave, agreed? Also great for festivals, and impromptu days in the park when the sun shines. That will happen, you know we’re right!

So, maybe a straw hat with some shells and feathers is your Easter bonnet style – find one at New Look for £12.99. Maybe Mantaray @ Debenhams‘ blue stone trimmed trilby (£14) is more your style? Or French Connection’s two toned large rimmed floppy version (£55)

BHS’s tan and cream stripy sunhat (£12) is cute Easter bonnet style. And Louche @ JOY’s straw boater (£15) is schooldays perfection!

Big 1970s inspired floppy hats are perfect for keeping those rays off your face – and pulling that 1970s look together. This fab black and white version is from Principles by Ben De Lisi @ Debenhams (£22). But we adore the Easter yellow trimmed version at JOY (£18).

H&M’s navy straw floppy (£9.99) is perfect if you prefer the darker shade of bonnet, as is GAP’s trilby (£19.95).

We love J by Jasper Conran’s monochrome Panama style hat at Debenhams (£22), and White Stuff’s trimmed trilby is a perfect hat for spring (£22.50).

Wool hats are perfect for spring and the end of summer. H&M’s tan felted hat is 100% wool (£14.99), as is their cute plum boater (£9.99).

Take things back to the 1990s with New Look’s daisy print bucket hat (£7.99) and their simple grey cap (£7.99).
