There is one sentence I get asked nearly everyday at the Hat Hire, and this is "I love the Hat, what shoes and bag should I wear with it? Where can I get the shoes and bag to match?".

No Mother of the Bride outfit, or Racing Fashion outfit is complete without a stylish pair of shoes and clutch. Always willing to help my customers out I've compiled my selection of the best Bags and Shoes for you.

This gallery includes affiliate links - suggestions of items I've selected you. If you see anything you like, click the links and decide to buy the suggestion, then the retailer will give me a little commission (maybe even enough to buy me a latte) to thank me.

As with matching any hat, bag and shoes, they don't need be absolute 100% perfect match, as the three should never touch. All three will likely also be made from different fabrics, so matching a leather to a silk, or a suede to a sinamay will be different with the fibres showing dyes different. Above are all shoes and bags that we believe would work great with Hat Number 180. This hat has a light mink saucer, with pheasant feathers in grey, taupe, brown to black tones, accented with Red and Orange. The above have been picked to match one of the tones. Please bear in mind that these assume the retailers have colour represented their shoes and bags well, as they have been picked on their websites colour representation.
